Papa’s World – High and Low Tides – exceptional.

October is the month for exceptional HIGH and LOW tides!

I did not know that!

No – I did not go to this extreme to see where the tide came up to.

But – from our Lanai one half mile away –

we could hear the BOOMING of the Surf!

So – Sherry looked it up and sure enough

we were in this week of very high and low tides!

So – we went for our daily walk in the morning

Just after high tide had been there

and I captured this photo!

HIGH TIDE CAME UP TO THE BOTTOM STEP

OF THE LIFEGUARD CHAIR! WOW!

And then in the afternoon – I snapped this picture

looking back toward the mainland

and down the beach – that same chair would of been

where the light colored sand is!

This was not even LOW TIDE YET!

I guess this happens once a year in October!

ME AND MY SHADOW!

This beach is very wide normally

during normal tides

and very flat and hard surface

you can wade way out if you want

not me – I saw a sand shark caught

within 20 yards of the beach!

Papa’s World – Living life one day at a time!

Our little family picture about 12 years ago – since this picture – our grandson Bode was born and today is 8 years old!

We are also retired now – moving from NVA to the border of N.C. and S.C.

We now are in our retirement house – about four miles from the beach.

My sons from my first marriage and their partners – on the Sunset Beach Pier.

They remain in NWPA where they grew up – we transferred to NVA for our jobs and they stayed behind.

Today they work in the energy field of state and power companies winterizing homes for the elderly.

We live our lives one day at a time to the fullest we can manage. Retirement has been good to us and the weather here is what we like.

Bode – who is following in the footsteps of his older cousins playing soccer – I hope one day to follow him in college like we do with his cousins.

PAPA’S WORLD – LIVING LIFE ONE DAY AT A TIME!

Papa’s World – both alike – both so different – twins.

Cassidy and Taylor on their 10th. birthday with mama Tammy. Who also shared the same day as a birthday!

Recently – two pictures were taken

one of each girl

Taylor and Cassidy.

My gosh – when did they look so grown up?

Cassidy with MORMOR & Ginger

Cassidy – the little of the two

actually – their difference has about stayed the same

but now Taylor is growing fast

she is going to be really tall

like her MORMOR – Sherry!

MORMOR in Swedish is MOTHERS MOTHER!

This is all she wanted when small

Cassidy had dozens of stuffed Panda’s

all lined up by her bed

today she is the TECHIE one

and the CRAFT one.

She also is a perfectionist

everything has a place

and she knows right away if anything has been moved!

Note how neat her desk is.
Taylor – going to be so tall – she looks a lot older her than ten years old!

Taylor – whom I think will be taller than Ella ( 5 ‘ 8 1/2 “)

and Sarah at 14 (5 ‘ 6 ‘) and going through a growth spurt.

She is laid back – needs her own TAYLOR TIME –

And loves horses and riding!

Her room is full of stuffed horses and horse toys.

Taylor who rides once a week

We have been monitoring them at the start of the school year.

But – we are now gone

It has its challenges

for both the twins and the monitors.

It also is Bode’s kindergarten year

But – we are glad we have been a part of it for the start.

We will be gone for five months

coming back for Holidays

BIRTHDAY GIRLS!

They still are so alike – I can not tell the difference

if they get excited – and I hear them talking.

Yet – they have different interests

so alike yet so differnet

when they all three sing

you do not know who is who!

As a monitor for two weeks – TEACHERS DO NOT MAKE ENOUGH!

I will not be surprised when we come back

the changes in both of them

it is not that Cassidy is small

but Taylor is really tall for her age!

Papa’sWorld – Yosemite – natural wonders – El Capitan

Cindy & Buck

Once again I drive – up and up – hairpin turns –

We are going to Yosemite –

Cindy – Sherry and Buck

The drop offs are a thousand feet –

There are no guard rails – the berm drops a foot

and then it is straight down !

Cindy and Sherry
later we would drive on the road at the bottom

There is no other way to describe it – 15 MPH is too fast !

I would constantly pull over at the spots to pull over to let traffic pass !

They would take the turns in the other lane –

Too many in hurry – unsafe drivers out there !

Sherry – with a wonder in back of her

In the distance you can see El Capitan –

Site of the movie FREE SOLO !

President Roosevelt

This pristine area has been preserved for one reason –

President Roosevelt !

ON THE BACK OF THE TIRE

Captured – with the view – on the back spare tire –

FAITH HOPE LOVE !!!

Buck Cindy Tom Sherry

As we made our way through the park –

many sights and scenes unfolded before us –

I am breaking this up into parts

as there is just so much to capture and so many pictures.

Papa’s World – Just things in life!

Is there anyone out there that does not look at themselves in a mirror

and wonder
“HOW DID THIS HAPPEN”? LOL

Things in life – we eat to survive – but we also do by habits!

Evening sunsets!

Things in life : We look at the heavens –

wondering – seeing painted pictures.

The stars at night – the Moon and planets – clouds – storms –

the wonder of nature –

The questions – WHO WHAT WHY WHERE WHEN all form when looking toward the heavens!

We move about – we share thoughts – we adapt and we move on.

The things in life – ever changing – the World revolves –

We age – we think back –

and then – you are a senior –

Where did it go?

Our minds are a wonderful place – we see and then we re see!

Sometimes it takes a second –

but we mostly can tell!

Things in life do not always seem to be as we see them!

Sherry – CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH – SSC IN THE JUICE PLUS COMPANY

THINGS IN LIFE: The main reason I am alive today – I had a widow maker heart attack – 4 by passes.

7 1/2 years ago – she has led me on a healthy life –

a life that I follow because of her and her training.

THINGS IN LIFE: PAPA’S WORLD – WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY

THINGS IN LIFE: PAPA’S WORLD – WHERE FAMILY MEETS FRIENDS

Papa’s World – Great Smokey Mountains – health – team – bonding – Generations of Nutrition.

Sixteen gathered at a cabin located between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg –

They drove hours to get there – all up and down the East Coast.

You see – my wife Sherry is a Certified Health Coach –

and also a rep for The Juice Plus Company and has been for the last sixteen years.

My health is the reason I am here today and she has played a major role in that.

Every six months – a conference is held – one on the East Coast and one on the West Coast.

The title is JUICE PLUS + LIVE!

Living life to the PLUS – one day at a time.

What started as a part-time hobby – became a retirement fun job.

In those sixteen years – we have traveled the country – met so many fine people

who all have one major thing in common –

HEALTH and NUTRITION and in our case FAMILY GENERATIONS!

Thus the TEAM GENERATIONS was born – led by a mother and daughter –

Today it has grown and grown and the leaders now gather –

Gathering for JUICE PLUS + LIVE

For the last two years – the Pandemic has kept the gathering in one place down to a minimum

But in October – it will be back in full swing in Atlanta!

Eight thousand people, normally, we shall see, the Pandemic has kept them apart.

HEALTH and NUTRITION – SALAD IN A JAR!

This time – arrive on Thursday – leave on Sunday – fun – learning – games – all part of bonding.

Linda and Sherry – a little break time.

In October I’ll once again be going – driving Sherry and seeing old friends once again.

Education – seeing new sights and making new friends.

Thanks for reading PAPA’S WORLD
Team Generations – gifting our children and grandkids.

Papa’s World – MEMORIES from before we moved from Va. to N.C.

Sherry – speaking before a large gathering on Health and Nutrition at the Doubletree in the D.C. area.

For sixteen years she is and has been a Certified Health Coach –

teaching the value of a plant-based diet.

She is an SSC for the Juice Plus Company –

And my inspiration to maintain a healthy living and aging style.

For sixteen years, my go-to for maintaining my health.
Following in the footsteps of their mother – Debby – QMND and Tammy – S.C

It has been a journey – one that is not easy to maintain with all the food that is out there –

but one that has become a way of life for their families –

and the concept of “TEAM GENERATIONS” that now has all the grandkids following.

Along with so many others all over the country and their own families.

TEACHING GOOD HEALTH THROUGH HEALTHY SELECTIONS – and continuing in N.C.

OUR TOWER GARDENS, BACK IN BRAMBLETON, VA.

We continue to grow here in N.C. and our experiment of the twelve-month growing season

has been a success!

THE TOWER GARDEN IS ON OUR BACK PATIO.

We decided to bring one Tower Garden with us and last August started our growing season.

We have continued all through the winter here –

experiencing SNOW – ICE – HIGH WINDS – temps into the TEENS!

It has survived all of that with a cover we brought with us from Va.

It allows the sun in and heats up during the day –

Metallic surface and everything survived regardless of our 1/4 inch ice storm.

I am not sure where we bought this covering but it was worth it as we had salads every night.

Papa’s World – Viewing the sunset at SUNSET BEACH – in the windy cold!

SUNSET BEACH, N.C.

Just a little over a month later from our New Years Eve beach gathering and toast to 2021

We once again were back to see the sunset – only it was windy and cold –

far from the 65 degrees of NYE!

The approaching sunset peeking through the trees!
Papa – Diane and Sherry

We first parked and walked to the end of the street – here the last of the end of the houses –

and this then begins Bird Island – marshland protected and wide-open beach.

Our neighbor Diane

The tide was going out!

Here you see the last of the houses on the marsh and bayside – with the tide going out – This is the end of Sunset Beach and the beginning of Bird Island.
Sun setting – time to go to the beach.
This is where we gathered for NYE and drank a toast to 2021!
The pier and people walking the beach.
Sherry – braving the wind chill – it was cold.

As we looked out on the ocean – to think we can do this every night if we want to –

and there still is Ocean Isle Beach – living our dream.

One final look before we returned home – Sunset at SUNSET BEACH, N.C.

MEMORIES OF THE PAST SIXTEEN-PLUS YEARS!

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – My oldest friend – my next to the oldest friend – they had never met – now they are friends!

I would say all three of us need to do this! LOL

Bobby and I go back to grade school in the mid-’50s and then onto graduation.

Jimmy and I go back to the very early ’70s and the start of playing softball for ten years or more.

Both have been in my majority of life although separately – never meeting one another.

That all changed when they both came to visit and now today they are also friends.

Bobby hitting first across the water to the green – Jimmy watching and will hit next – we played a scramble.

Bob’s wife Pam and my wife Sherry – went away for an extended weekend to the Great Smoky Mountains in Tenn.

To Gatlinburg and a health conference with 12 other ladies!

We decided to do this and play some golf.

We went across the street from Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach where we live and play one of the BIG CAT COURSES!

There are four of them over there and this one is called Panther’s Run.

Jimmy putting it on the green with the second shot

They hit it off right away – Jimmy is about eight years younger than us – Bob knew his family but was long gone from Eldred when Jim and I started playing softball together.

Bobby laughed at something Jimmy said.
Jimmy after making the approach shot to the green.
Time to contact the wife!
Another approach shot on the green.
Nothing but the truth here! LOL
And of course, we headed to a Tiki Bar at Jinks Creek to have a drink and dinner!

Thank you for reading Papa’d World – WHERE FRIENDS MEET OUR FAMILY – FAMILY MEETS OUR FRIENDS!

My two oldest friends – Bobby and Jimmy – never met and now are friends! This is how it goes in PAPA’S WORLD!

Papa’s World – Bob and PJ – Leopards Chase – golfing and seeing Gators!!

Pam ( PJ) and Sherry – Leopards Chase Golf Course – Ocean Ridge Plantation – Ocean Isle Beach, N.C.

Before they came to visit – we told them we would take them to the beach and also golfing!

They were excited at that – they both had gone to a driving range – and had their clubs.

Across the street from us sits four courses called THE BIG CATS golf courses in Ocean Ridge.

I made tee times at Leopards Chase.

We saw this medium gator on the bank across from the tee box.
And then a few holes later at another tee box – I happened to look over the bank and saw this BIG GATOR!

I had told them we most likely would see a gator or two!

Pam teeing off with Sherry watching.
Bathroom break and letting a twosome play through – we never saw another person again!
It was that type of day – quiet – no one around – just four friends meeting up once again.
Bobby teeing off with Sherry watching.

A day of golfing with friends – playing a scramble – we shot an 83 – not bad for us hackers – if only we had made those putts!

Of course a drink afterward.

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – for exercise – walking healthy – our go to spot – the beach!

One of the reason we came South and where we choose to build our home – Ocean Isle Beach.

We tried many areas down here and were drawn to this area in N.C. called Ocean Isle Beach.

We are some eight miles or so to the S.C. border – and we are situated on the mainland –

some four miles inland with the ICW between us and the beach.

We also are close to numerous golf courses – which is another reason we moved South.

We decided as we age – it was time to take it serious – well – we are not good – but love to play!

Opposites attract – that is us!

We tried out NMB in S.C. and really liked it there – but in order to find what we wanted –

we each had a list – it would of cost too much in renovations and thus way over our price point.

Then by accident – we stumbled on to a new community being built.

And we could get everything we wanted – all new – for the price we would of paid before renovations!

And here is one of those things on both our lists – access to a beach to walk each day!

We are in our autumn years – still able to get out and about – and one of those reasons why –

is to maintain a healthy lifestyle – eating and walking.

Sherry is a CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH – and prompts me to stay active.

That also is why we golf – being outside in the fresh air –

four to five hours each time – some walking – we trade off and on – and swinging those clubs(often)

She has run her own internet business from home going on sixteen years.

Papa’s World – Let food be thy medicine – let Medicine be thy food!

I did not always eat that way!

In fact I was a fast food junkie!

And at age 64 – it caught up with me!

I had a WIDOW MAKERS HEAR ATTACK!

Four arteries –

1 was 100% blocked

1 was 90 % blocked

1 was 70 % blocked

1 was 60 % blocked!

I should of died!

Had I known what I know now –

But my wife did and she changed our lifestyle 15 years ago

and that saved my life!

Photo by Buenosia Carol on Pexels.com

We started to eat healthy – went away from the fast – junk food

and started taking a supplement –

a mixture of fruits – vegetables – berries –

juiced – dried and the nutrients put into capsules.

This was called Juice Plus.

Sherry with grand kids & daughters

Along the way – we managed to get all the grand kids

on the supplement for free!

Minus Maddy who is in college and we still provide her with the shakes and capsules

There is no doubt in my mind that I would of passed away

had I not changed my lifestyle and taken this supplement.

On this journey of health –

Sherry has become a certified health instructor

through courses with Doctor Bill Sears and Doctor Pam Popper.

All of our family is involved

So – that is my story and I am now seven years past that heart attack

last year I had a nuclear test and everything is as it was after the by passes.

My blood work is amazing

and I now see my heart doctor once a yaer.

I have managed in the last 12 months to shed some 20 pounds.

I am now what I weighed when I graduated in 1967!

Papa’s World – Mother and Daughters – changing families – for better health

Debby and Sherry

It all started 15 years ago

Sherry found a better way to get nutrition & nutrients

from fruits and vegetables with research to back it up!

Three generations

They started by naming their mother – daughters team

“TEAM GENERATIONS”

From GIGI ( grandmother )

– to Sherry ( mother) to daughters

Tammy and Debby and their children.

Four generations – all on the road to better health.

Ella and Sarah
Bode Taylor Cassidy

The fourth generation – and when they have children – the fifth generation

All because Sherry said “YES” at NBC for your health

at the Washington DC convention center!

The TEAM GENERATIONS TEAM

It continues to grow – families seeking nutrition

better health

feeling great and less doctor visits

More energy

It has spread across the country

and now they communicate with ZOOM calls

and those that live near each other – gather in exercising

There are monthly exercise programs – group fastings

Challenges – and social group gatherings.

Mother and daughter bonding

It has become a FAMILY trip to health.

The oldest in college – practicing health

sending her care packages of healthy foods!

Trips to conferences on the East Coast and West Coast and Middle America twice a year
Team generations continues to grow one family at a time
Leadership in numbers
Before the pandemic – social gatherings
Making life fun with health
Team Generations began with a mother and daughters
Today it has grown into this – leaders from across the country

What started out as a way to eat healthy

and have our kids and grand kids eating better

has turned into a group of dedicated individuals

who share their experience of health and nutrition.

The OLD WAY HAS BEEN REPLACED
To a whole new life style
Debby Papa Sherry on the way to THE ELTON’S a celebration of recognizing individuals

Papa’s World – Yosemite – El Capitan & Awanhee Hotel

I have to give KUDO’S to the drivers of Nevada and California !

They are courteous – mindful and after passing

go back to the inside lane !

It certainly is not like where we live as HORNS are always blaring !

El Capitan

You see it rising and rising – and wonder how anyone can climb it !

Now – the other night we rented a movie called FREE SOLO !

Where someone actually climbs this without equipment !

Just fingertips and toe holds ! CRAZY !!!!!

Sherry with back drop of El Capitan

Now – I will also admit – while I knew he made it – TRUE LIFE FILM !

I was not watching it as I would dream about it !

Or at the very least lay there and think about it !

But I am glad I got to stand there and admire this wonder of nature !

You can not describe the feeling – you must see it for yourself !

The beauty of the area is just extreme pleasure in looking around !

But all things must come to a end

and we were told another must see

was the Awanhee Hotel – Lodge !

Painting Awanhee Hotel – Lodge

We traveled on down to the village

where we explored and then to the Hotel

If you stop be sure to go inside both the Village store

and the Hotel.

The Awanhee Hotel

Made out of huge logs

and you can see how they left trees growing

without damaging them !

Inside the lobby

The setting is beautiful with the backdrop of cliffs and mountains.

I do not know the price or how much snow they get

but if you are a nature lover

then put this on your list !

This finished our trip to Yosemite

and we started back

a different route

for additional scenes !

Papa’s World – Walking among the Ghosts – Korea

Long known as THE FORGOTTEN WAR –

The Korean conflict war memorial

is to me – “WALKING AMONG THE GHOSTS ” of war.

GOOD MORNING


My brother in law Bill was in this war –

and not once did he ever talk to me about it !

The closest we came was him giving me his sleeping bag –

as a teenager who used it to sleep out on –

North Western chilly nights

in a little town of Eldred Pa.

Jo Paul Sherry
walking from the Wall
to the Korean War Memorial
Sherry Paul Jo
Seeing the GHOSTS for the first time

The sight is becoming – the soldiers – silently walking –

through the shrubs – gray – white –

the effect is startling.

Paul Jo

One can almost feel the tension in the air –

the expected clash about to happen –

I often wonder what it would be like to be there –

not in Korea – but here –

on a dark silent night –

with mist swirling in from the Potomac !

Sherry – walking among the Ghosts
on the Korean War Memorial

That is the sense this brings to me –

in a War mostly forgotten

yet the vast numbers of loss and maimed

remain with us to this day.

Jo and Sherry

The message is here
long ago
but forever written
not to be FORGOTTEN

Tom

Ever want to go back and play that softball game again ?

Or – just one more Volleyball match

without the worry of crashing to the ground ?

How about racing down the court and laying the ball into the basket?

Instead you sit back – think and then take a warm sip of your coffee or tea-

And think of where you were – what you did – and know that-

Those were the good OLD DAYS !

Me today

Now it is make sure you brush your teeth – comb your hair –

Put your socks and sneakers on –

Look at your fit bit –

Check the time –

Glance over your shoulder –

And say to your other –

” WHICH PATH ARE WE WALKING TODAY ” ?

WHY I WALK

Walking – not running anymore – too many sore parts

But you can dream – you can think back – and you can know –

” I USE TO DO ALL THAT ”

Today – I WALK !

Walking

At our age – walking has become a habit –

A habit that has become a challenge –

one that is which path to take !

As I age – I think –

I remember –

dream of what was –

It seems that it was not all that long ago !

A PARTNER

I may be older – and I might of done things better years ago –

But the older I get –

I like to think –

Not only was I good at one time –

BUT AS I AGE – I GET BETTER – BETTER AT LOVING WHO WE ARE !

You become wiser –

you become more of a person –

YOU BECOME YOU –

Sherry & Tom 1982

Forever young –

memories are for the living –

And LIVING IS OUR LIFE –

Being older with the one you love –

THE OLDER WE GET – THE BETTER WE ARE !

Makes up for all those past ages –

WELCOME TO PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – ” I LEFT MY HEART IN SAN FRANCISCO”

GOOD MORNING

On our list – SAN FRANCISCO – and we made it !

The Golden Gate Bridge

We left in traffic in the early morning –

and arrived still in traffic crossing the GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE in FOG !

We had a destination – a parking garage –

But it was surrounded by one way streets !

So – drove around and around –

passing our way in a few times

because we could not get to it.

Parking garage

The plus to all that was the garage was right across the street from Pier 39 !

Alcatraz

We also had a view of Alcatraz in the bay.

We choose not to go there as Buck and Cindy had been there

and I wanted to spend more time in the city !

Pier 39

We walked and walked Pier 39 –

NOTE – we left Sacramento in 100 plus temps

had to have light jackets as it only got to 64 and foggy.

great place to people watch and also full of unique places.

If you go here – take it all in and search out a good place to eat !

San Fran sky line

It also was close to where we bought tickets

for a 2 1/2 hour bus tour ( you can hop on and off )

we selected to stay on and then walk when we got back.

At end of Pier 39

I also recommend you walk to the end of Pier 39

where you can see hundreds of huge Harbor Seals

all barking and moving around on floating docks!

Papa’s World – All gave some – Some gave ALL – THE WALL

Today – a emotional journey into the past –

THE VIETNAM MEMORIAL –

GOOD MORNING

Leaving the Lincoln Memorial and walking across the street –

past the little building selling items

in tribute to the WAR no one wanted !

Jo and Paul

The walk was quiet – people gathering – people taking pictures –

Sherry Jo Paul

We all had classmates on THE WALL –

a very divisive time in our young lives –

our middle to late teens –

being told that we would be OVER THERE in High School!

People gathered at THE WALL

My coach saying to us –

” YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE GOING ” !!!

Living that for five years –

But for the grace of God – go I !

Jo Paul Sherry
capturing the name of a class mate

In my Senior year – I had a car accident –

I spent 51 days in the hospital –

not knowing if I would ever walk again

“BUT FOR THE GRACE OF GOD – GO I ”

Jo Paul Sherry

We all had some one to find – to honor – say a prayer –

REFLECTIONS OF YOURSELF

Jo Sherry Paul

When you gaze – when you search –

and then you see yourselves

gazing back – looking into your soul

And you know – for what reason –

They gave it up – and you shall never forget.

Papa’s World where friends meet family

Papa’s World – last days at the condo and walking the beach – Ocean Keyes NMB.

Last morning sunrise – 6-30-21 – view from the Lanai – OCEAN KEYES – NMB
Another picture – 6 – 29 -21

Everymorning – when we wake up – me really early – Sherry – laying in bed to open her eyes and see this.

We – for nine months – have been blessed – staying – walking – listening to the surf – all from this condo.

A selfie on the lanai – and how our hearts and souls feel.
One last beach walk – wading in the warm ocean water – me carrying my shoes – the numerous tidal pools

people sitting in them -a look at the North Myrtle Beach proper – widest beach on the strand – walking –

comfort – the people -we will be back for it is but thirty minute drive for us.

After the beach walk – once again sitting on the lanai – awesome view – going to miss this!

When we return – I sit on the rocking chair on the lanai – or at the table – watching the water fowl –

seeing the huge fish from above and the endless turtles.

The otter that comes to swim and even a snake or two swimming –

No gators have I seen and was told there is none.

Swans come and go and at the far end – three white ducks I have named Huey – Dewey and Lewie.

Walking to the fridge and claiming the last German Pils – just for this occasion – salute!

It has been a memorable nine months – meeting people -having numerous family and friends visit us here.

Walking to the main street and all the live music both outside and inside.

The golf carts – the tourists and the six swimming pool here.

The pickle ball courts – the tennis courts – the work out room and the community center –

It is but a small piece of heaven -but it is heaven on earth.

Papa’s World – Toes in the water – beach life!

Finally we have made it to our dream –

We always vacationed at the beach

up and down the EAST COAST!

Today – until the end of February

we will be next to it!

Sherry and I sold our house and rented a condo

one half mile from the beach

in North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

We did this because I just happen to come upon

this rental – and the view of this small lake

from the top floor lanai!

OUR VIEW EVERY DAY!

And the bonus – during our three mile plus walk everyday

half of that walk is on the beach!

Of course said walk comes after my morning cup of coffee!

Why for five months?

Because we do not know where we want to live

only that it will fall someplace

from here to the northern border of N.C.

We have always talked of this

But where ever we go – the criteria is twofold

We will try to stay within 7 hours of our families

in NVA.

And a place that is warm – no snow – and lots of golf!

We did not know at the time just how much Sherry would come to love this place!

Being here – it is warmer than where we lived in the winter

and we walk everyday –

hardly any traffic as we walk within a gated community –

until we cross a road to the beach.

And then after a 1/2 mile walk – we have this!

I LISTEN TO HER THOUGHTS!

She has leaned over to me and said

” I REALLY LOVE THIS WALK AND PLACE”!

A QUIET PLACE TO WORK ON HER PHONE!
TOES IN THE SAND for me!
WE HAVE SAVED – we have worked all our lives.
We have found our quiet place – our love – and a place for family to enjoy.

We are close to the over seven hours for our trip back to NVA!

The family is now a long weekend away.

We still are searching!

Oh – you can ride golf carts here!

TOES IN THE WATER – OUR HAPPY PLACE!

Papa’s World – on the Autumn of Life – sunrises – family – Part Two !

It never gets old – every morning is different – as are the nights – I will miss this view in a few short days!

Our Condo in Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach – found simply by accident – and now almost nine months later –

We will move out and into our new home – if the closing is on time!

But – here is what we look at each morning – the lake – the wild fowl – the houses – the fountains – trees –

I love the rees!

And family – little ones climbing trees!

All or most of the family has come down – Mike and Maddy have not made it here.

The little ones love to explore – play on the playground at Barefoot Landing.

Family is really important to us – and keeping the time to get here manageable!

In our new home it will be six hours for one family and almost seven hours for the other.

They can drive in one day and be here early enough to enjoy!

Family time – beach – exploring – warm weather – new home – new neighborhood.

The Myers family – our oldest daughter and the oldest granddaughters – Debby – Ella – Mike – Papa – Sherry – Sarah and Maddy – our first granddaughter – Ella was second and then Sarah.
Ella a senior – next fall – enroll at Randolph College – will play soccer – her H.S,. is undefeated and about to enter states.
Sarah – in the middle of Taylor and Cassidy – Sarah is the youngest in her family –

Sarah wants to act – design – fashion – dance – no sports for her – although I secretly believe she would be awesome – still growing – Ella at 5′ 81/2 ” – I think she will be taller – and Taylor will be tallest of all – only 10 years old!

Maddy – oldest grand child with the youngest grand child – Bode – only boy – Maddy is going into her third year of college at the University of Lynchburg where she also plays soccer – carrying a 3.85 GPA!
Mike – PHYS ED. teacher – Ella – Debby – QNMD for The Juice Plus Company.

Family means a great deal to us – even though we are down here – they have visited and we have gone home several times – staying in each family homes with them.

Papa’s World – on our first night staying with our daughters house – STORM rolls in!

We had arrived and settled in from Winchester – Lake Holiday – Cross Junction – our other daughters home.

The day was uneventful until late afternoon – the sky turned deep gray – and the clouds seemed to be rolling!

They were scary – rolling across the sky!

A storm was coming!

It was like this in front of the house also – the wind picked up and we could hear thunder in the distance

to the West.

In the distance – sort of pink clouds – but overhead – dark gray!

Lightening began and then the rain came!

The wind picked up – looking out the front window – I could see the major portion of the storm –

coming over the hills toward us – flashes and then the thunder.

Then the first time we lost all lights!

The electric went out!

The rain came in hard – beating against the front windows!

The lights came back on!

The thunder continued and flashes of lightening!

Did not seem to phase the newest member of the family – MARLEY!

The electric went out several times and came back on – the rain got harder – later we learned trees had come down

and one house was struck by lightening out Winchester way and burned down.

It was a severe storm – first one of the late spring – and then the lights went our for good!

We all decided after it calmed down – with no lights but still a little daylight to see –

to just go to bed while we still could see.

Later – the electric came back – I think it was out a couple hours – and then we had to get up and turn lights off!

A eventful first night back at our daughters house in Leesburg Va.

Papa’s World – little Krohn puppy – Marley( she) and I – dog sitting!

She is a GOLDENDOODLE – all legs and a cute face that you become attached to!

She is ten weeks old and named Marley – the newest addition to Tammy and Marcus’s family!

They have wanted a dog for years – at least the kids have.

But – I feel deep down – this is Tammy’s Dog! LOL

Marley – she just flops down where ever she is and looks at you with those puppy eyes!

Everyone was gone – kids in school – Tammy and Marcus at work – Sherry meeting friends for lunch and me with Marley – the whole time I had her outside in the fenced in back yard – she would go and hide in the bushes!

Peaking out at me – and when I went over – she thought it a game and would move to another bush!

She really is a sweet puppy – but still a puppy – she has sharp little teeth – and barks really loud!

It was warm outside and she sought out the shade – she would look at me and when I whistled – would come running up to me – licking my legs and hands and wagging her whole body!

But – she is a puppy and like a little child – you have to watch everything she does – chewing – peeing –

It is more challenging than baby sitting! LOL

Marley – under the bush – the other side is a drain spout and wet – she would go there and roll in the mud and dig!
Marley – waiting for me to let her back into the house – she seemed to have had enough for a while!

She wants to go back inside and will lay at the top of the steps and sort of cry!

Then when you go up to her – she gets all excited and licks you as you open the door and inside she goes!

Papa’s World – the next day after the storm – we relaxed on the beach – sun and warm sand.

The next morning we walked the beach after the storm and then decided to go back to the condo and pack up the chairs – some drinks and food – music and relax on the beach – RETIREMENT!!!!!!
The beach was not crowded at all being early in the week.

We choose our spot and set up the chairs – took a little walk to test out the water –

But – on either side of us – people had music – loud enough that it interfered with what I had –

So – I just put mine away and listened to theirs – two different types! LOL

Watching them para-glide right off shore – four boats out there – two up by us and two farther south.

We could watch then load and unload the people – hardly stopping – and the crowd on the beach was picking up!

After a night before with thunder and lightening storms with high winds –

this day was calm – sunny – blue skies with white clouds!

Cleared my mind and was a relaxing mid afternoon!

Papa’s World – before the pandemic – Sarasota Fla. Loved this city! Just too far away!

Papa and Sherry – hugging a tree in Sarasota , Florida – we had considered moving here – but it was just too far to drive for family and friends and for us to go back home without flying.

Then the Pandemic hit and it never came back into the discussion again.

But – I really liked it here and if we came to Florida – this would be my first choice!

I do not remember the name of the garden but it is city center – and a beautiful place to walk!
We were among huge old growth trees – a lot of shade and a sort of tree – boardwalk that wound its way

in and through the tree branches!

Papa’s World – A place to SHAG! N.M.B – where it all began – “FAT HAROLD’S” – SHAG CLUB!

Sherry – Cindy and Buck sitting near the dance floor of Fat Harold’s – the first few Shagger’s starting to dance.

We had eaten dinner at HOTO’s ( Harold’s On The Beach) and then walked through the OD Arcade ( Ocean Drive)Seeing all the pictures and people were dancing there already.

Even saw a picture of all people the Pro Golfer Sam Snead who had been there

Within a half hour – it picked up and became more and more crowded with very good dancers!

We then walked over to Fat Harold’s Dance Club!

And found this table beside the wall of mirrors so we could watch the dancing!

Cindy and Buck loved it just as we had when we first came here!

Retirement – one of the benefits – going on eight years for me and nine years for Sherry!
Watching the dance floor of the Shag!
Best friends for 35 years!
Now it was getting really crowed and there is a second dance floor and bar that had the same number of people dancing!

Papa’s World – more memories of the past six teen months – living life one day at a time.

Before the Pandemic and while in Florida – met up with very old friends – Lynda and Fred – going back some 45 years!

I knew both before I met Sherry – Freddie and I went to 7th. grade thru 12th. grade.

We met at a place that was half way to where they live in Florida and to where we were staying!

Great time with old friends. MEMORIES!

We traveled before the Pandemic – meeting friends along the way.

And – – we were careful – as were some more friends we met.

Almost seven months after the start of the Pandemic – we met up with Pam and Bob – in Berkeley Springs WV.

Bobby and I go back to grade school – friends for life.

Sports – a few drinks – camping out – running the streets – never anything destructive – just boy hood memories.

By the time this blog posts – Pam and Bob will stop in on there way back to New England.

They have a drive RV towing a car.

We are all safe – testing and vaccinations.( except Sherry who is allergic to the vaccine)

It will be good to once again relive memories – Freddie – Bobbie and I had growing up!

Many memories – friends – family and life in general. The journey living life one day at a time.
John and Nancy – members and friends form our church – Community Lutheran Church in Sterling Va.

Fourteen years we attended services there.

John and Nancy moved to Charleston about a year before we moved.

On our way back from Florida – just before the Pandemic – we stopped in and stayed – regaling in memories.

They gave us a walking tour of Charleston’s waterfront and historic district.

A few months after we moved to Myrtle Beach area – we met halfway in Georgetown S.C.

And – about a month or so ago – they visited us at the condo.

Friends – MEMORIES!

Papa with son in laws Mike and Marcus.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – Taxes are being done – my job is making dinner – eating healthy – yes my lady.

Today – I am making dinner while my wife does our taxes – I have the easy part!

Eating healthy has become a way of life for us going on almost 16 years!

In that time I have learned how to BAKE rather than fry!

I have learned low carbs – no gluten – low sugars – and GMO’s.

I have learned to lead by example – children watch and copy!

My life is far different than all those years gone by.

I WATCH WHAT I EAT!

The dinner I made – baked salmon – greens – one sliced egg – veggies – a little fruit and no dressing!

I have learned over these past 15 plus years.

I take it very seriously!

Well – you must also smile! Great for your mental health!

Living each day – I have to stay away from sugars as I am borderline diabetic.

I watch carbs more so that calories – carbs put the weight on me and turn to sugars.

We grow our own produce with no pesticides – knowing exactly what we are eating.
We make healthy meals and deserts out of fruits – veggies and berries.

We purchase from this company what we eat for health reasons.

Have been doing this for almost 16 years!

And – the taste – for me – is excellent.

Life is hard – food – not healthy food – is everywhere!

Commercial after commercial – radio or TV – is constant.

Billboards – advertisements – packaging!

Everywhere you look or hear is processed food.

Berries (purple) omega’s (orange) fruits (red) Veggies ( green) are my medicine cabinet.
Concentrated whole food – powdered – nutrient dense – encapsulated every day!
Yes – I baked dinner – I use no salt – no dressing – I do use onion flakes – pepper and a low sodium seasoning.

And when not doing our taxes – she makes healthy treats!

A shake a day seems to keep my doctor away!

Our lives changed almost 16 years ago – she became a CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH –

through the known children’s doctor – Dr. William Sears – author of 40 children’s books.

Health has become our lives.

Making healthy choices one day at a time.

Instead of candy and sweets – I chew on these – Gummy’s – fruit – vegetable and berries. Satisfies my urge to eat sweets!

Thank you for reading my blog – Papa’s World.

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY

FAMILY MEETS FRIENDS!

For my brain – omega’s – food for my mind and memory.

Papa’s World – golfing Magnolia Greens – home course of friends – beautiful!

Sherry and Cindy – they decided to walk the 18 holes – Sherry got a new pull cart!

I actually believe these 27 holes compare to the best in the area including Myrtle Beach!

On this day – the flowers were in full bloom and reminded me of Augusta!

Almost every hole was like this!
A view of the driving range from the outdoor patio of the clubhouse!
Sherry Cindy and Buck – having a beverage on the outdoor patio after 18 holes!
On one of the tee boxes – everything was blooming!

We have played this course many times over the years!

They have called this home for at least twenty years.

Having bought and sold and built here many times.

This is the main reason we came South to this general area.

Our new home will be about 40 minutes away –

so daily golf is available!

Sherry on the patio of their home that overlooks one of the large waterways on the course!
Cindy on the same patio of their home looking in a different direction from Sherry!
Cindy was to the left – Sherry to my right and Buck straight across from me – looking at the course across the water!

This is the second home they have built here – both in this water area and both had like views –

only this one is downsized from the other one.

Buck and I on the tee box about to tee off!

We – Buck and I – did our usual scramble – and we had a record for us – we shot a 39 with a double boogie the last hole!

If you are ever in N.C. just South of Leland and Wilmington – this is a public course – 27 holes – stop in and make a tee time – it will surprise you and you will love it – one of the best around the area!

Papa’s World – Spring has Sprung – the Beach got busy – and they are in the water!

Here is our before 9:am. early morning walk – a little more crowed but nothing not expected! Looking South to North Myrtle Beach from where we enter the access to the beach.
From the beach access looking toward Cherry Grove – a few more people – but not a lot!

But – this is the beginning of the week for Spring Breakers –

and we noticed traffic getting heavey.

We have found our way around and avoid the high traffic on rte. 17!

We take the side streets as far as we can – and one side street takes up to where we can shop!

Now – in the afternoon we decided to do a couple hours of a beach day – taking and carrying our chairs to the beach. Here is the same view looking toward North Myrtle Beach – a lot more people and a lot of people in the water. But we still had our own space – no one within thirty feet of us!
Here is the same view in the afternoon looking toward Cherry Grove! And – it will get more crowed as Spring turns into Summer with vacations! We are in the open space and avoid large gatherings which happen mostly toward North Myrtle Beach town center. A lot of young H.S. and college students gather on the beach there in a large group. You just avoid them as they will do what they do regardless!

Being here is still our dream – we will come back often as we like it here –

but also where we are moving too – no traffic – country quiet – we can walk –

and still be in access to the other two beaches!

The beach here is very wide – I have been told it is the widest on the Grand Strand!

Papa’s World – Sherry and I went to Eagles Nest to golf – a relaxing four hours – good course.

Eagles Nest – Little River – North Myrtle Beach.

We had stopped here over the weekend – as we have driven by it hundreds of times!

Two entrances and finally I just turned in and followed the road for about a mile.

And then we were there – EAGLES NEST GOLF COURSE!

What we found out later – was this is the longest course in S.C.

and maybe the longest I have EVER played!

The back tee box – if you play that – the course is over 8200 yards long!

And full of beautiful scenes such as these!

There are many marsh areas such as this – did not see any snakes or gators!

It was more like this most holes!

We were teamed up with a father & son.

We introduced ourselves – we had not planned on playing with anyone.

But – after the first hole awkwardness

It turned into a fun day!

A view down the fairway!

I had watched my wife and how she was hitting.

I noted that she was doing everything right except two things!

I told her to tee her ball up a little back in her stance –

and to always tee it up the same height.

She was coming over the top on her ball – still hitting it good but not as far as she has.

This green – she hit the cart path – this hole for her was 299 yards – after I adjusted her stance and tee height – she ripped one down the right side and it hit the cart path and followed it toward the green – we searched and searched where we thought it had gone – the two guys we were with found it! It was laying just off the green on this side along the cart path. It had gone 299 yards!

And – I might add – she beat me by FIVE STROKES on the front nine!

So much for me showing her what to do! LOL!

After I showed her the adjustment – with her ladies tee – she was out driving the rest of us!
And she continued her good play – she also beat me the second nine!

Just a word to our friends – Cindy and Buck – the ladies have to give us strokes from now on! LOL

They are just too darn good!

Papa’s World – visit to the new build – roof is done – siding half done – insulation this week!

Every Sunday we go to Cameron Woods where our new home is being built – no one is working on Sunday so we can look it over outside and inside – and our builder calls us each Monday to give us a update. That way we can ask questions if we see something and get answers without meeting in person.

Here is the front – siding in entrance way is done – roof shingles done – back and side siding half done.

The right side of the house – back to front – breakfast nook – kitchen – window laundry room and then the garage.

At the rear will be the covered – screened in lanai.

The covered – screened in Lanai with the back door and then the open patio. To the right is the breakfast nook and kitchen – all windows.
To the right – covered Lanai – open Patio and windows of the sun room – then the master bedroom.
The rear – Master bedroom and going to the front – master bath – bedroom 2 and then bath two and then bedroom 1.

They have told us we still are looking at early June for closing!

Keeping fingers crossed!

We are in the condo until end of June – we have a storage unit 3 miles from the new build.

If needed – friends have offered us a place to stay.

Ever since I had my Heart attack some 7 1/2 years ago –

I get chilled very easy – even before I did not like the snow – ice and cold!

But – the families seem to like it – skiing – snowboarding and playing in the snow!

When we were back home for the Holidays – believe it or not – we went to a winery!

Where we had wine – snacks and a fire in a fire pit.

The pit was free and offered by the winery!

I bundled up and made it through -but by the end I was cold!

Here we are – outside – about 7 PM. – Marcus – Papa – Bode – Sherry – Taylor – Tammy – Cassidy!

I have to admit – it was unique – but I very seldom drink wine –

I just can not get into the dry wines!

Now – a sweeter wine I can sip on!

Sherry Cassidy Taylor – Tammy & Bode

What a difference 3 weeks make!

From snow and cold to sand and somewhat warm!

Even though it was not as warm as we would of liked – for Jan. it was okay!

I am not shoveling snow – I can layer up and walk the beach!

School break – and a quick trip down – Marcus could not get away.

The first thing they wanted to see – THE BEACH!

The little ones love the beach – sand and water.

And then we took them for a walk along the ICW at Barefoot Landing!

Watching the boats traveling up and down –

and seeing the boats in the marina – where a lot of people are living on the boats there!

WHERE WE ARE UNTIL END OF JUNE!

Papa’s World – walking the beach – no buildings here – just wide endless beach – Cherry Point!

Debby Sarah Sherry Ella

We decided for their last beach walk on a cold windy day –

to take them to the far end of Cherry Grove to a place the local’s call Cherry Point!

To get to the beach – you must park along the road and then walk through this covered path!

The path to the beach is overhanging tree limbs with lots of shrubs and bushes.

Once you walk through there – you are greeted to a wide expanse of beach to the left.

The right goes back toward the houses and pier.

The view to the left and almost low tide!

It was cold and windy – and we wanted to walk way out as it seemed at low tide you might be able to walk to the other shore.

Here you can see a few brave souls – walking – and the wind was really blowing!

Ella and Sarah – laughing and trying to stay warm in the blowing wind!

We walked maybe a half mile – and decided enough – it was just too cold and so windy!

One last picture with Ella – Debby Sherry and Sarah before heading back to the car.

I told Sherry – when it gets warmer and is low tide – we must come back and just see if we can walk across the bay!

Papa’s World – Barefoot Landing – Crooked Hammock Brewery – Deb and girls.

We ventured out and drove to Barefoot Landing – to let Sarah shop!

That is what she wanted to do the most beside walking the beach.

Sarah – Debby – Ella discussing which shops to go to – just outside of the new Brewery – Crooked Hammock!
We had walked by here dozens of times – and were waiting for it to open up – at last – it was open!

But – we decided since it looked really busy on the inside and outside

We would pass on this trip and go to a place that was not really that busy!

So we walked around and came upon this alligator in the water – below us as we stood behind the railing.

This was my first time seeing one here.

There were signs for this and snakes –

And at first we did not think it real as it was very still until it moved!

Hoping when the little grand kids come – we can show them a “GATOR”!

Ella Debby Sarah

I actually like Barefoot Landing over Broadway on the Beach

which is in Myrtle Beach Proper.

We did do some shopping – well they did – I walked in – took a look around and went back outside to find a place to sit!

Papa – checking out the “BEER GARDEN” notice all the
GARDEN TOOLS” hanging on the wall!

Sarah loved it here – her place to be – store to store!

Papa’s World – in North Myrtle Beach a celebration with the GREEN – St. PATS

The IRISH came out in droves to celebrate and this bar was command central in the organizing of the festivities!

For the last four weeks – there was a on going struggle between the owners of the business’s

and the city council and the mayor of North Myrtle Beach!

A year ago the Covid 19 hit and everything went into lock down

The annual parade was canceled and places were deserted.

Many did not survive 12 months later!

A lot of store fronts are vacant!

The back and forth has been in the papers and on the local news!

The business were told they would be fined if they proceeded –

I do not know the inside story only what I read .

The parade was canceled even though hundreds of people showed up

with no masks and no social distancing.

Instead there would be a steady stream of golf carts

all decked out – business with bars – blocked off with yellow tape and orange cones.

The celebration would go on after one year!

Discounts and sales were everywhere – the merchants have been in a struggle for 12 long months!

We went to main street with our masks and stayed away – 6 feet from people.

Sometimes that was impossible.

Most of the bars are on one side of the main street!

We watched and took it all in – it was a happy feeling – even though we were aware of our surroundings.

It still was sad to see almost no one here even though the celebration was going on!

This main intersection would normally be crowded –

I really do not know just how they are staying in business!

Maybe – with Spring Break coming up – they will have customers.

A lot of people are condemning the celebration – but I do not!

We choose to walk over and see what was happening – maintaining a safe distance from people which was not hard to do.

We stayed away from the bars where most people were –

we found a place to sit and observe.

I hope that this was all worth it!

As we walked – we watched from afar across the street – the golf carts -the music and people spending money.
Across the street from where we walked.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

The IRISH came out – business once again on Main Street North Myrtle Beach!

Another bar tucked back off the street – not many people seen – but Johnny on the spots!

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH – A CELEBRATION WITH THE GREEN!

Papa’s World – Our happy place – back from the North – walking the beach!

We had made our second trip back home to NVA!

It was cold – no snow – sunshine – seeing family –

Running errands and keeping appointments.

Arranging the clean out of our storage unit and moving it South

To Ocean Isle Beach storage.

Admiring the sunsets of NVA.

But – once again we set forth and traveled back to “HOME” in S.C.

Where we will be for a total of nine months until our new build is finished!

Sherry – videoing the surf and calmness of the Ocean!

Back to our HAPPY PLACE as Sherry calls it!

THE BEACH where we try to walk every day.

SUN- SAND – WATER – life is good.

Looking toward North Myrtle Beach!

We had always talked of one day being able to walk the beach every day!

I never thought we could make that happen.

But – then the stock market slid South last March –

Taking 30 % or our 401K with it!

On the positive side – our house gained in value!

We discussed it and decided now was the time to cash in on the home value!

We started the process and with 24 hours sold our dream home.

For way over the asking price and most of the furnishings!

We were now Vagabonds!

Free to go where ever we wanted to.

First for three months we would stay with the daughters – helping out!

Then we would head South where it is warmer and no SNOW!

And by chance we ended up here – in Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach!

Today – we are building some sixteen miles away

In Ocean Isle Beach – West of the ICW!

Sherry walking to the water’s edge.

Where a short ten minute or so drive – we can walk the beach!

Healthy living – eating ( I love Kale) and walking three miles a day –

in the sand – warm – listening to the sound of the waves!

All because of the stock market slide a year ago!

Papa and Sherry – our HAPPY PLACE!
