Papa’s World – My first thought when we walked main street – all the golf carts we were back in The Villages!

They were here early – starting just back from the entrance to Fat Harold’s Beach Club where we go and watch them do the Shag dance!

There are a lot of golf carts in North Myrtle Beach – and they actually block off this portion of Main Street –

and make it into one big tail gate lot for golf cars – and there is no one way they park.

The are front to back – sides – going in different directions and by the start of the music – jammed in there!

Sherry with her chair on her back as we walk down the side walk toward the beach – this was early – about one hour before they were scheduled to begin the music!
Some carts parked facing away from the beach – when we walked by here later – they were almost all touching each other – just enough room to walk about – chat up your neighbor and sip a drink – somehow they had set up speakers in the middle divide and the band could be heard through those speakers – actually sounded better than where we sat.
Looking back up main street across Ocean Blvd. Now these carts are all facing front but behind them – they are in different directions – I think at the end the police help them get out – we did not hang around as lightening was coming from upo the street behind these carts! The rain did hold off – later in the night.
Part of the crowd in chairs they set up – we were to the left and not as crowded and easy to get in and out.
The stage at the arch on main street entrance to the beach.

It is here that the OD PAVILION – before it was destroyed in the ’50’s from a hurricane –

The SHAG DANCE started!

HOTO’s also is here as well as the OD TIKI HUT and radio station 94.9 the SURF!

HOTO’s behind the red sign and THE SURF RADIO STATION 94.9 – and the OD TIKI BAR.

The music was good – although in different areas as we walked about – it was better – must be where we sat!

The crowd was big and this the second concert of the season which goes every Thursday night –

till the end of October!

I am happy for the merchants as it has been a long 15 months of the pandemic.

I think the vaccinations plus the number of people who already have had covid19

has brought us closer to herd immunity.

The clouds were moving in – we both had rain alerts on our phones and behind us toward rte. 17 – thunder and lightening! TIME TO GO HOME!

Papa’s World – lunch at Bouy’s and a street music festival on Main street!

I have wanted to stop in here and have lunch ever since we got here on 10-1-20!

It is a local place right on the beach in North Myrtle Beach!

These places always catch my eye – I just get a feeling about them!

They generally have good food and live music –

and this day – the food was great – a salad with grilled fish – and the music?

Well – right across the street is a block long and a block wide vacant lot –

And it was packed with tents – you could rent – and thousand of people!

A huge stage and three bands playing for six hours!

WE WERE RIGHT ACROSS FROM THE OPENING OF NORTH MYRTLE BEACH MUSIC FESTIVAL!

Our view from our table while eating lunch!

It is the first major event sanctioned by the town government since the start of the pandemic 14 months ago!

And people were out and about in golf carts – cars – trucks and just walking!

This was roped off and a charge to enter – you could rent out a canopy – and carry in drinks and food!

We did not go inside the ropes – instead after we ate – we walked around and around the whole roped off area as did many other people – they had chairs set up outside the ropes and golf carts – the police were there and ticketing anyone not parked legal.

I would say – inside – a thousand people – or more – I guess this is the fourth one they have had like this over the years – and the radio station was there and it also was broadcasting from the beach which was just as crowded!

Sherry entering the beach on main street!

We tried to walk the beach – but it was really crowed and full of young people – all right next to each other!

A look back toward sixth street where we usually go – and the other direction had even more people!

This area is pretty much not locked down – and you could tell the tourist season has begun!

I am happy for the the store owners who have suffered so much – many shut the doors and will not return.

But – we decided this was way too crowed for us – so we returned to the music and walked toward our condo.

Pausing once again outside the ropes to listen to a band – really good singing all the classics of summer of the 60’s and 70’s!

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – Stopped at Patio’s in Little River S.C. Saw Weekend with Bernie and a Eagle

We had journeyed to Cameron Woods – to see how the construction on the house was coming along!

No one works on Sunday – so we could park and walk around!

Then – after we left – I said – ” How about we drive down into the waterfront at Little River”?

When we first came down here – we had driven down into the area and saw all these neat local places to eat!

First impressions are – you want to go with someone else – there is a biker bar there.

But – after walking around – I can now see it is okay!

We followed some signs that led us to a place called PATIO’S!

Off the beaten path but we walked to it!

And – then we were greeted by BERNIE!

As in THE MOVIE WEEKEND AT BERNIE’S!

I laughed – this was funny – and a place I felt comfortable in! BERNIE!
We seated ourselves on the outside patio decks – and listened to the live music.

I had my first draft beer in three weeks!

I really do not drink all that much – seldom the hard stuff – mostly drink water!

But – for some reason sitting on the ICW – listening to a good lady singer –

singing from requests all the music I love – EAGLES – when low and behold – one perched just outside the deck!

A bald eagle landed and sat there while she was singing a EAGLE’S song!
Then it lifted off and soared overhead – circling the entire patio!
And landed once again on the peak of the fishing shack right beside us!
We decided we are going back here and bring our guests here!
Sherry had the Sushi from the Sushi bar! And said it was very good!

I on the other hand did not eat – but rather had my second draft of a light IPA

Called a BLOND ZOMBIE!

Normally I do not drink IPA’s as I feel they are too heavy – but I liked this one –

enough so I had a second one!

12 oz drafts are just enough for me!

Papa’s World – year in review – besties – and being blessed!

For years since we came South – we try at least get together every four to six months!

We all lived close to one another back in NWPA and WNY!

Cindy Jim Buck Dottie Sherry Papa

We now all play golf together after a couple years ago Dottie decided to try it out.

Walking the beach at North Myrtle Beach on our last get together.

Now we also play cards – sip a beer – and listen to and sing to music!

We have always had a great time – we travel – explore new places

We play gals vs guys in golf and the gals are good!

This last time we won by I think 2 strokes!

Imagine – meeting old friends – memories – laughter and good times! review blessings

There are times in you r life this happens – but there are times in your life that this is a cherished memory!

We are blessed – we have a lot of friends – some older than the others –

And when you managed to meet up –

That makes a memory that you look back on and smile!

PAPA & SHERRY

During our trip to Florida last Feb. we made a date to meet up with a couple of the oldest friends I have.

Freddie and Lynda and I go back to the ’70’s –

Fred and I graduated together so I guess that puts us back to the ’60’s!

Freddie Sherry Lynda

When I introduced Sherry to them – they hit it off and you can tell

they still do!

Fred was one of my three best friends in H.S.

CAN YOU IMAGINE – all these years and still laughing

even if years go by and not seeing each other!

Music is top of the list with these friends – singing – tipping a few drinks – and shots! LOL

We have a core group of friends – those that we try to get together with several times a year.

We all lived near each other before we all moved South.

Except Mike and Carol who still live in the old hood!

Cindy – Buck – Dottie – Mike – Sherry – Carol – Jim

Mike and Carol bought a house on the lake Chatauqua in Western New York

and invited us all for a long weekend.

They have extended the invitation once again for next Summer!

Boating – boating and more boating in their beautiful new boat

that fits all of us plus room to spare!

Cindy PAPA Sherry

Old friends – new memories – fun – laugh – CAN YOU IMAGINE!

Sherry PAPA Pam ( PJ) Bob

Bob is one of my three best friends from H.S. – he stayed at my house and me at his.

He ate dinner with us and I ate dinner with him.

We played sports together – and then – lost contact as he moved to N.H.

Later in life he remarried and we connected once more.

Now Sherry and Pam talk on the phone and we make plans of meeting up!

Which before we came South- we met up in Berkley Springs.

Pam had a misstep and injured her achilles

causing her to have surgery

So as right now – we do not know when we shall once again see them.

But friendships exist through time and miles – memories created –

CAN YOU IMAGINE!

Papa Sherry Elaine Steve

We played volleyball in a league with them during the mid ’80’s!

We golfed with them all the time!

We watched their children grow up and they ours!

We went on vacations to North Myrtle Beach together!

And they are alwys in our minds – planning to get together.

They were the first to come to D.C. to explore!

CAN YOU IMAGINE!

These are our oldest friends – we have made new friends – life is memories made and memories to be made!
CAN YOU IMAGINE!

Papa,s World – Brook Green – Night of 1000 candles – near Pawley’s Island-S.C.

The night before we came back home to N.VA. – we drove 45 minutes South

Near Pawley’s Island S.C

to “BROOK GREEN”!

( and we will go back in warmer weather – to see it again in daylight!)

Huge Oak trees – with hanging lights – almost from the top!
Reflections in the water of lights!

The whole place – hundreds of acres – is dressed up in colored themes –

and over 1000 candles lit by hand!

Bronze statues are everywhere!

Some of the 1000 candles lit by hand!
Candles and lights – everywhere we went – a different theme – and colorful lights!
There were food trucks and a tent set up with drinks – hot chocolate – coffee and tea as well as water – soft drinks and beer!
So many different areas lit up – hard to capture them all!
You had to stay on the paths – and after dark – you could easily get lost in the maze of light!
Hanging moss lit up!
Paper lanterns lit in red and white colors!
Like fire flies in the sunset!
Sculptures with light reflecting on the water!

There must be a lot of volunteers to do all of this!

And – we only saw part of the park –

there also is a zoo here but was closed!

Paps’ World – Local on the Water – great views & Reviews!

Sherry and her sister searched the internet

for a place to eat lunch with a view.

And – just a couple miles away

they found LOCAL ON THE WATER!

The front of the building
A view of the side of the building with another outside bar.
And one of the reasons we selected – the VIEW!
And the second reason – four star menu!

We did not know this existed so close to where we are living!

It is only 11 streets away on the inter coastal waterway.

We wanted a view and we got one!

We asked to be seated as far away from the main area and still have a view!

Sherry – watching the boat traffic on the ICW!

Now – this place was very large – multiple levels and rooms

I saw two stages for music and four different bars.

Our seats were by ourselves for the most part.

The lunch crowd had just begun.

Several unique area’s for their late night action!

I asked how busy they were and she replied

on the weekend very busy at night.

So – so during the week

but lunch was popular and the place big enough

to allow social distancing!

Many areas for entertainment
Sherry and her sister Debbie

We ended up with a very good lunch

we all had different salads

I had the AHI TUNA!

Debbie the Cobb and Sherry the Pear!

One of our views!
Another view
Another view at one of the bars

Papa’s World – skies – sunset – living life – doing it my way.

Living life doing it my way is the theme to my everyday Blog!

As the above quotes –

LIVE ANYWAY – I take my days one at a time.

I came close to dying when I had my heart attack

A WIDOW MAKER they told me!

I looked at life different after that!

I cherish each sunrise and each sunset!

BE HONEST ANYWAY –

I guess this is the main reason I have no political party.

And I believe this has followed me my entire life.

It is hard to find honesty – and there are times I have not been.

But – my belief in God and forgiveness

Is the way I lead my life – thanks to my wife.

LOVE ANYWAY –

I try to follow this and it is hard to do.

I have many friends –

and I had to unfollow them on social media.

Not unfriend them

but the mean – unproven things were just too much for me.

But – I still LOVE them!

PLAY FAIR ANYWAY-

In games – life and living

I take this to heart

To me – it is how you play

not how you win.

I have always been that way –

I am competitive – but also fair.

If I lose – I lose

and come back again!

livinglifedoingitmyway.blog is MY SITE

Life comes at you – how you handle it – says a lot about you.

My hope in this blog – is that it helps someone out there

that you can be loved – fair – honest and live anyway!

Papa’s World – During the Summer – FOOD TRUCK’S

GOOD MORNING

Every other Thursday – during the Summer months –

Across from the Town Center – by the Legacy Park –

FOOD TRUCKS gather – 7 to 10 of them !

From 5:30 to 8:30 PM.

FOOD TRUCK THURSDAY
LEGACY PARK
BRAMBLETON TOWN CENTER

We have gone the last two times and have tried three different food trucks !

The cost is a little less than if you went to a restaurant –

And the meals are really good !

I had the Angus Organic beef burger
from this green and yellow food truck

I had the organic – grass feed Angus beef burger –

I would say it was almost a 1/2 pound bugger –

and almost no grease dripping !

Sherry had from another truck –

Pulled BBQ Pork – beans – mac and cheese and coleslaw-

Altogether on one plate –

And if you have ever been to Rochester N.Y.

Up there it is called a ” GARBAGE PLATE “

and for years and years the college students have raved over it !

Finding a bench in the park
Most tables and benches
in the park were already occupied
Early gathering of people

We did find a bench – a lot of people did the same thing we did!

We just sat down – no drinks – just our food – and watched the children play.

The food truck with grass fed – organic beef

I have to say – every other Thursday – we most likely will attend –

And – on opposite Thursdays – is live – open air –

stage entertainment – concerts !

This is all part of what they call the SUMMER SERIES festival.

You bring your lawn chair – they have some food trucks –

It is all blocked off and you get a ID wrist band –

only if you are purchasing a beer from the beer truck-

you can bring your own picnic

And from 7:00 to 9 PM. live music !

They erect a large stage

and each time – different music – for all ages.

Leaving the food trucks
and walking back to the car

This is just a part of our lives in Brambleton Va.

Listed as one of the top 25 community’s in the USA.

Walking back to the town center

The town center with other shopping – entertainment –

Movies – restaurants – banking – bars – groceries –

dry cleaning – parking garages – health center – etc.
