Papa’s World – Make a wish – FAMILY JONES!

When we were here with our grand kids – CASSIDY -TAYLOR – BODE – they strung together these shells with all our names on them including MORMOR & PAPA! Each time we return – we can feel them being here!

They began gathering their shells –

We had shown them the shells that the grand kids had hung from the tree!

The shell Taylor hung with her initials – TK – and the month and year!
In the back ground – our grand daughters – Cassidy – shell with her cousins Olivia in the foreground.

They loved doing this – and when other family members come down

we shall do the same!

On the tree – Sherry wrote the names – Taylor – Cassidy – Bode and now Maya and Olivia.
Maya signing her shell.
Olivia signing her shell!

We spent some time here – reading other shells and found one with a date of 1990!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World!

We arrived – The Make A Wish Tree area –

along the ICW in Little River S.C.

at the Vereen Memorial Garden!

The girls were excited – because we told them – their cousins had been there

a couple weeks prior!

We showed them the sea shells they had made and signed!

So they went about finding shells!

So may shells to look at!

They took their time – looking with the help of their parents and Sherry!

Casey Kristie Olivia

Now it was time!

Spread them out on the bench – string them – and write your wish!

Found the spot on the tree – where their cousins left their names and added theirs!

Papa’s World – A visit by the Jones – family time and exploring!

Kristie – Maya – Olivia – Casey Jones – Sherry’s niece and family from N.C.

We had visitors for the weekend – from N.C. around three hours away.

Daughter and family of Sherry’s sister.

Sisters Olivia and Maya

The little ones were so excited – to finally be able to go somewhere

all due to the pandemic.

We tested – they rested and everything was good.

We only had one full day to explore – so we took them to Vareen Memorial Garden.

To hike and gather shells.

We also hit the beach for a short walk but it was windy and cold.

Searching for shells along the ICW – they even felt the water! LOL

Papa’s World – Two new Swans – they just show up!

Taken from our Lanai – they seem to hang out now at our end of the lake!

The three Swans that were here first are gone – so we are told.

Seems the Male chased one and in doing so – at another pond –

It somehow broke it’s neck!

Then they found one that had been bitten by a snake!

The third – we just do not know and we were told this by a couple who live here!

These two were reintroduced by Wildlife management

we were also told!

The Swans come and go – but lately have been staying here.

I have watched them fly in and land –

right across the view we have on the fourth floor!

I have also watched them take off –

and fly down to the other end of the small lake.

It is a very loud noise as they beat their wings and take off!

I watch them sleep on the banks during the day in the sunshine.

And – in the moon light at night see two white shapes floating just below us!

There are other groups of water fowl

Different types of Ducks – Geese –

Birds from the Ocean a half mile away!

The view everyday from our Lanai!

But – I love the Swans the most!

Papa’s World – Heritage Reserve with the grand kids – hiking!

Bode – walking into the Heritage Reserve – Cherry Grove – S.C.

The little guy learned that not hiking is in the mountains like he thought!

Crossing streams or climbing rocks – that is all he had ever done on a hike

Showing him nature – the marsh – water – sand – scrub trees –

He learned that there is more to this Earth – hoping to bring him back

in warm weather as we were told you could see “GATORS” then!

Taylor walking the path through the trees!
Taylor Cassidy Tammy Sherry ( MorMor) making their way into the preserve!

They were excited – walking into the trees on the sand path –

looking for birds – snakes – spiders

hearing the sounds and the marsh views!

Taylor and MorMor – she is only 10 years old – already up above her MorMor shoulders who is 5′ 9″!
Bode – exploring and me reading to him what is here!

FAMILY – MORMOR – MEMORIES!

Papa’s World – a walk along a deserted beach with grand kids!

Often times you look on the other side of the fence – and then there comes a time you get a chance to walk at a place that would look the same 300 years ago! Here is that place at the far end of Cherry Grove – S.C. where no houses are built – no piers or docks – just sand – ocean and trees and shrubs – a deserted beach!
This I think is what the coast line looked like long before the settlers came here. No buildings – just raw nature – surf – and sand!
First – you have to find the path through the trees and shrubs to get to the beach!
Finding a very large tree washed upon shore – perhaps 60 feet long!
Sherry Tammy Cassidy Bode Taylor

Walking along the surf – no one in sight – imagining that this is how nature looked centuries ago!

And then we turn around and in the distance the pier – broken from the last major storm! Mother and daughters – solitude – listening to the surf – and time to turn around – head back to the houses.
In the background – the end of the buildings – the broken pier and a deserted beach – and looking ahead into nature what it looked like all those years ago. Tammy – Cassidy – Sherry (MorMor) Bode Taylor

This is a place where the past meets the future –

and we had the pleasure to bring the family

to see – hear and experience it!

Walking back to the future – Bode and MorMor!
Walking to the past from the future!

Papa’s World – Barefoot Landing – Playground – grand kids!

One of our favorite places to go and walk & show visitors –

Is Barefoot Landing – maybe 4 or 5 miles from where we are staying!

Tammy Taylor Cassidy MorMor Bode

Walking around with the little ones –

all the while they are eagar to get to the playground –

to get that energy all bundled up out!

All three in their happy place – and now 450 miles away – “when we come back MorMor – can we go to the play ground”?

They loved it here and even made some friends who they will never see again!

Playing tag – up and down and all around for a hour or more!

This huge old live oak tree – was moved here and saved from a parking lot 800 feet away!

I found that to be awesome – to move and save this over 200 year old oak tree.

And to build a playground around it!

We teach them about nature – walking the paths and trails!

TAG YOU ARE IT! and so it goes – not once but twice we brought them here –

and if they had it their way – we would of been here all day- everyday!

But now – it is time to move on – explore and see the boats and ICW!

THANK YOU FOR READING AND JOINING! 385 subscribers WORLDWIDE!

Papa’s World – Papa – when are we going on a hike? PAPA? PAPA?

Our young grandson – five granddaughters and then Bode!

From the very moment they pulled in – he asked that question –

PAPA – CAN WE GO ON YOUR HIKE?

To him – a hike is like back home – rocks – hills forest – streams!

I tried to explain to him it is different here –

But PAPA – That is not a hike – we have to go to the mountains!

Bode – entering the forest for our hike – along the ICW and the marsh land – no gators – at least we saw none!
“FOLLOW ME GUYS”!

He is a leader – and always out in front!

This is him to a tee – always staying ahead of the game – his own mind.

We walked a good mile and one half through the woods –

although he was out in front of me or alongside of me –

he never sought to run off –

staying close to me!

There were many intersections going in different directions – which way do we go PAPA he would ask – I had a map so I could tell him – he always listened to what I would say!
The twins – Taylor and Cassidy stayed close to their MORMOR ( Sherry)

We spent the better part of a hour walking the marsh and the woods

I want to come back here in the Summer so we can see more wild life!

Cassidy MORMOR Taylor Tammy Bode

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

The day we went on our hike –

Bode now understands a hike can be different

Papa’s World – hiking with the grand kids – Veeren Memorial Park – S.C.

Cassidy Bode Papa Tammy

We had driven past this park dozens of times as we went to golf and also after we bought our lot!

Always saying – we need to stop and check it out –

might be a good place to bring the grand kids as they all

like to hike and explore!

Papa Cassidy Taylor and Bode

So – we did and then when they came down – we went for a hike –

out through the marsh – into the trees – a sand trail – pathway –

I had a map as it splits off several times!

I guess in the warmer months you will see gators in the marsh!

The little ones are always curious – exploring – seeing and asking questions!

But – they also stay close – ever watchful –

and tend to hang with MorMor!

Sherry – ( MorMor) Swede for Mother’s Mother – loves to lead and show them – explain what everything is!
They also listen to her!

Tammy Bode MorMor Cassidy Taylor

The first thing they wanted to do was walk the beach!

Now – wouldn’t you know it that it got cold and windy the day they arrived!

It was so warm the day before people were sitting on the beach and wading in the water!

So we pressed on and walked down and onto the beach.

The wind was the culprit – making it very cold.

Even Bode has enough even though he had no shoes on!

Cassidy Taylor Bode after he put his shoes back on!

We walked to the next beach entrance and exited!

MorMor Bode Cassidy Taylor Tammy

It was a very short walk – but they got to see just how close we are!

Tammy said the kids were great – she had told them she would not stop and she didn’t making the seven hour drive in a little over six hours and they never complained!
