Papa’s World – A little game called MASH BALL!

Starting the week – I had no idea what it was –

sort of a small version of Beer Pong!

At first they played it on the cement pad around the pool

which got really hot!

Then they found some “NOODLES”

that had been thrown away by the previous guests in the garbage

and rigged it up to float!

That was a game saver!


Everyone took their turn – if you won – you played on!

Hours and hours in the shallow end

just dip down in the water to cool off!

You kept one hand on the floating game board to keep it steady

and there were ten open cups

When you put a ball in the open cup

you placed a red dish in it –

when you filled all ten red cups

you won the game!

Mash Ball on one end – then the deep part – and then shallow again
After Mash Ball was over then nap time was over and the little ones came out to play

Pool time became more and more as it got really hot on the beach.

A couple guys would go and set up on the beach

but with little kids – it was easier by the pool

the sand was so hot – even with sandal’s on

It would burn your toes!

Papa’s World – homeless – beach vacation – part two.

Sherry Sarah Ella Tom

Our first full beach day was on a Monday!

The whole week would end up warm – hot – a few showers

and fantastic lightening and thunder shows over the ocean

and behind the house!

From the beach a view of our house in the middle

We were just South of the public beach access –

and when I walked up there – groups and families were spread out.

As it was where we set up – everyone seemed to have marked

off their own space 15 to 25 feet from anyone else.

Our little space on this expanded beach

We walked both ways – and people respected your space.

No need as far as we were concerned to wear masks on the beach.

It was wide open – we were not near anyone

and the wind was always blowing.

Besides – everyone in our house had quarantined before coming.

Everyone worked from home or had tests.

As you can see – not that many people around.

Unless you were by the water – you needed foot wear for the sand

which was very hot!

It was in the low to high 90’s all week.

With one day over 100 and heat index of 104!

It would sprinkle a little then go away

at night we would have lightening shows out over the ocean!

Ella going in the ocean

There was a problem of Jelly Fish

but from what I have read

it is all the way up and down the Carolina’s and Va. coasts

Ella did get stung twice as did Sarah.

I went to the lifeguard and they sent a EMT over.

He applied a heat pack and told us to get her to a hot shower

or a hot tub which we did.

That seemed to cure it.

Several other people also got stung!

All in all – the beginning of the vacation week –

was more or less worry free.

We had met those we did not know

All had social distanced

and we were confident going forward we had made the right choice.
