Papa’s World – find a shell – tie a cord through it – DEB and GIRLS make a WISH – hang in tree!

There is a place near the ICW – where there are hundreds of shells hanging from trees – each one is someones WISH!

We brought them – Debby – Sarah and Ella to Vareen’s Memorial Garden

Just as we did with their cousins – and here is a special place

to not wish upon a star – but a SEASHELL and the hang it form one of the Cypress Trees!

Sarah Sherry Ella Debby at the make a wish site.
Sarah’s hanging wishes for all her school friends!
The first make a wish tree – now there are many more!

Many people pass through here each day –

I watched two older women stop and do the same thing –

find a shell – write on it and then hang it from a tree!

Busy writing their names and making their wishes!
Debby’s shell – no matter how old you are – make a wish to come true!
Taylor’s shell in front of Ella’s shell – cousins!

It was a warm day – low tide so lots of shells to look at!

Sarah going to the ICW to look for shells.

Cassidy -cousin and grand daughter – make a wish on a seashell and hang from the WISHING TREE!

Papa’s World – beach time with Deb – Sarah and Ella!

After unpacking – the very first thing they wanted to do after riding seven hours – “GO TO THE BEACH”!

They love the sand – the surf and the sound of the water and waves –

LETS WALK TO THE BEACH said Sherry!

So we did – the half mile walk through the neighborhood

To the gate entrance and then cross Hillside drive

Walk another block and cross Ocean Blvd. to the parking lot!

And then – you are standing on the sand – looking out to sea – looking for Dolphins!

Growing up – we would take Debby and her sister Tammy to the beach

Whenever we could for vacation.

Now – whenever they can – they take their families to the Ocean.

They are so excited – finding shells – talking – sticking their toes into the water!
We have raised them to respect nature – to be a part of it – they love the outdoors.

Early on – we taught them to respect the environment

To not litter and see the wonders of what is around them.

Walking the sand – listening to the sound – “THE BEACH”!

Papa’s World 0 Sunrise before we left to go back to NVA!

The morning sunrise!

The day we left to venture back to Northern Virginia –

I glanced out the sliding glass doors and this is what I saw!

The swans cruising around the bend.

I also looked for the swans – we have three of them now –

and here they came – gliding past the other community pool –

These two hand out around our end –

While the lone swan hangs down on the other end.

These two are mates and will not let the lone swan near them.

I have seen what I think to be the male of the two –

Make a beeline toward the lone swan –

enough so that the lone swan takes off flying over the lake and lands at the far end!

In a few days we will head back down to S.C. once again to “HOME”!

Funny how that has worked out – we are very comfortable with the area now!

And – as much as we love our family time and visiting –

Home is where our hearts are now – the new build and the excitement

of the family visiting us!

I always remember our past – all the places we called home!

Our current view that I will miss!

Papa’s World – college soccer – Sophomore – granddaughter – life at college.

College life this year is so different with Covid – 19.

The season for our granddaughter – Maddy has been delayed from Fall

to Spring – and only a certain amount of spectators will be allowed in to watch!

Maddy in blue – a organized team event.

But life in college goes forward – from virtual learning – to social distancing.

To team functions – everyone on the team has had covid except one player.

What a strange year – but their season began in mid Feb.

with a win – 2 to 0 with Maddy having a assist.

College life – a big step in any other time – but this is the biggest of her young life.

Maddy second from right – one of five players receiving what is called the Bell Award!

Dedication – maintaining a high GPA – and on breaks working – goals of a young woman.

Who will major in Environmental science – engineering.

All the while playing soccer in college – her dream since she was first able to kick the ball!

Maddy – number 10 – University of Lynchburg soccer team – a dream come true.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World and our oldest granddaughter MADDY!

An early picture of me holding my niece and my little brother – both have passed away – in fact – all my close family except two nieces and two great nieces are gone that I grew up with.
A early picture in the ’50’s of my older brother Roger on the basketball team. He also has passed on.

My early childhood was spent in a little town in NWPA called Eldred.

Near the NYS border and just across the mountain from Bradford-

home of Kendall – Penns oil – Quaker State and the South Penn oil fields.

My older brother Roger and myself in The Villages shortly before he passed away.

Growing up here was like the movie “STAND BY ME”

I had friends like that – and road my bike everywhere!

Curfew for me was
BE HOME BEFORE THE STREET LIGHTS COME ON”!

My brother in law Bill and my sister Donna – both gone but not forgotten. Bill was once interviewed by Larry King – he was a truck driver but also the Chief of Police and later Mayor – Mr. King found that to be a interesting story!

Papa’s World – living our dream during the Pandemic – a year of blessings!

Our view from the condo in Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

This past year we have also had our blessings during the Pandemic!

Yes – we sold our dream home – BUT NOW ARE BUILDING YET ANOTHER ONE!

Yes – we left our family 450 miles to the North – BUT NOW THEY WILL BE VISITING!

Yes – we packed up Sherry’s office – BUT NOW WITH PHONE & COMPUTER –

SHE WALKS THE BEACH AND CONTINUES!

You see what I mean when we have our blessings!

Sherry’s new office!

We went to the new property after coming back from NVA

leaving the snow- ice and cold behind

and saw that they had the forms in ready to pour cement!

Then we walked the beach!

Blessings are where you put down roots!

Work is where you are and where you walk!

That is owning your own network marketing business!

The wind may blow – but there are many fine days at the office!

A year in which we have a pandemic but also a year in which we have blessings!

We explore – we walk – we play golf –

we do not miss the cold – we miss the people!

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!

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!

Papa’s World – looking out to the lake from inside the condo – Lanai!

When I first saw this Condo by accident on the internet –

I was drawn to the view!

I said to Sherry – “How would you like to look at this everyday”?

That is the moment we decided to make our home for five months

in North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

We had never had a thought to come here!

Every morning as I sit and work on my blog –

as it gets lighter outside –

I glance to my left and see this!

The early morning sunrise right outside the two sliding doors

off the living room.

And – in the master bedroom – through the sliding door

she also has this same view as the Lanai is screened in

and we are the top condo in a four story building

with two elevators twenty feet from our front door!

We can sit out on the Lanai or from the couches in the living room!

This lake is 1/2 mile long and is full of water fowl!

My office for my blog!

I can sit and watch it all unfold before my very eyes!

We have extended our stay – from the two months to five months.

And – maybe even longer!

As of now – we are looking at places to rent or buy or build!

We love living here – but there are two major drawbacks.

One – we need more storage if we were to move here.

Two – we need a garage for our car –

the hot sun down here can do a number on it!

Everyday we walk by this – still inside the gated community!

There are six different pools here and we can use them all.

There are work out areas with weighted machines

and exercise equipment for our use.

And in 6/10’s of a mile- we are on the beach!

Our beach access point

We walk to the beach almost every day

and then we walk on the beach

to get our three plus miles in!

We can hear the surf – from our Lanai!

We have searched this area –

but very little compares to this!

We are just going to enjoy what time we have left here in Ocean Keyes

North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

Looking to the outside from the inside of our Condo!

Walking from the condo to the beach

Papa’s World – a cool early morning walk on the beach!

There are times that we walk early – before 7 AM.

It is a quiet time to walk –

a time to just take it take in!

Life comes at you and never stops!

You and me are just along for the ride.

We can make the most of it

and when we get off

our legacy can continue to the next generations

hoping we made a lasting impression

in that all to be short ride!

How many have stood here before you?

How many have viewed the view?

Walking – thinking – talking together!

Early morning to clear out the mind –

A time to reflect – to plan.

A time to see what lies ahead

knowing that this will be here tomorrow

and the day after that many – many times!

Yes – walking early – hearing the sound of the surf –

the warm feeling of the Sun on your back or face.

A walk on the beach – a walk through time – a time to reflect

Walking – listening – solitude – but being together – sharing moments and thoughts -for it is here that ideas are formed – problems solved.

AN EARLY MORNING WALK ON THE BEACH!

Papa’ s World – Healthy living – one day at a time

How many ways do you say ” I LOVE YOU ELLA ” !

The twins gravitate toward their cousin Sarah – Bode – his idol is Ella.

It has been this way ever since he could walk and talk. ” Is Ella going to be there ” ? he will ask. Ella is our second oldest grand daughter – who will turn 16 this July. Bode is our youngest gran child

and the only boy out of SIX ! He turns FIVE in November . As you can see here – he absolutely adores her. ” Ella – you want to play “? he asks.

Both have been brought up eating Healthy – as have all the grand kids. That is priority number one for their parents – even though they both are cousins – it runs in the family.

This was taken before Ella’s soccer game and during her older sister’s game. Both play – Maddy is the starter on Midfield – varsity and Ella starts as midfielder on the J.V. team.

The varsity is 8 wins 2 loses & 1 tie.

The J.V. are 7 wins 1 loss & 3 ties.

Very proud of these two and Maddy signed a Letter Of Intent to play soccer at The University of Lynchburg in Va. We will make trips to watch her play.

Bode loves his cousin and she in turn choose to sit with him prior to her game – she has the biggest heart and to see them was priceless.

We all practice living to the plus – being together – and supporting one another. This is but one more day in PAPA’S WORLD .

And Bode supports his Ella !
