Papa’s World – show a little LOVE!

We went to Lynchburg Va. to watch our grand daughter play soccer.

Our oldest daughter – her husband and the three grand daughters

all were there – the next day we went for a walk along the river.

Mike Sarah ( youngest) Maddy ( oldest – college soccer) Ella ( senior – college soccer in the Fall)

We watched the game Friday night in the rain – Maddy scored a goal

And the next day – after her practice – went for a walk along the river.

Sarah ( 5’7″) Ella ( 5′ 8 1/2″) Maddy ( 5′ 6″) Sherry ( 5′ 9″)

The girls are tall – Sarah seems like she will be the tallest as she is only 14.

But – when we were home at our other daughters house-

Taylor who is only ten years old – is already 5′ 1/2″ tall!

I think she will be the tallest along with Bode.

Our walk lasted a couple hours

as we were going for a late lunch and a early dinner

Debby ( Mom) already shorter than her daughters.

We walked – a fun walk – a lot of laughter!

Maddy Sarah Ella

It was a fun afternoon – a break from the rain – warm enough when walking

to enjoy the time together.

LOVE!

Debby Mike Papa Sherry Sarah Maddy Ella

Thank you for reading Papa’s World!

LOVE!

Our three oldest grand daughters!

Papa’s World – lunch on the waterfront in Southport, N.C.

Sherry and Papa having lunch on the waterfront!

We went to Southport, N.C. before going to Caswell Beach on Oak Island – to meet friends!

We wanted to explore it a little bit more the Southport area!

What we found was the waterfront with all these places to eat and sit and watch the boats go by!

There were a lot of boats going by!

We had the best view while having lunch – and this bay is very wide – a warm breeze – a drink –

living life to the plus in retirement in N.C.

Island in the distance – boat going by.

LUNCH ON THE WATERFRONT – SOUTHPORT, N.C.

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 – a lunch trip to Local on the water with Debby and granddaughters!

Debby and Sherry at Local on the water. We like coming here in early afternoon as hardly anyone is around.

We seem to take all our guests here as it is social distancing and out in the open

We are right by the ICW and see the boat traffic.

Ella and Sarah on the swings – everyone loves the swings.

This place has two stages for bands – one inside and one outside.

A large fire pit and a sand area for corn hole.

Covered eating areas and also uncovered.

Happy hour every day 4 pm. to 7 pm.

Lots of beer on tap from different brewery’s!

A view from inside looking out to the ICW with Sherry and Debby.
Sarah – with the hat on I had to look twice to make sure it was her and not Ella!

I like the food here – and try something different each time.

We have not been here for the dinner menu – just lunch or brunch!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – if ever in North Myrtle Beach – check out Local on the Water!

Papa’s World – once again – Wicked Tuna – Myrtle Beach for a bite to eat!

Inside “WICKED TUNA” by the pier – Myrtle Beach , S.C.

We had been out shopping for furniture and were down in this area

by the Boardwalk on the Grand Strand.

We decided to stop back in –

and it was so windy and cold – we stopped our walk and went back to the car

and drove here instead of walking!

On a warmer day – some days are warm and coat less – others – you just do not want to walk!
Looking back toward the boardwalk of Myrtle Beach – note the flags – wind blowing!

We had purchased furniture and needed to plan our second stop!

We had been here before and enjoyed it!

When we went in – we were the only people there!

We had the whole place to ourselves!

The view we had from our table – the pier – deserted and no one on the beach!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World and our stop for a bite to eat

at the WICKED TUNA in Myrtle Beach – S.C.

Papa’s World – Morning begins our day out to Barefoot Landing!

Waking up everyday to a sunrise!

We do plan some days ahead –

mostly – we walk in the mornings

usually around 9 am.

Other days it is errands to run – houses to see

areas to explore –

and a trip down the street

to BAREFOOT LANDING in North Myrtle Beach!

Now – to get our STEPS in

we go here and walk around.

It is peaceful – not crowded

and you walk around the lake

and among the stores.

We wear our masks when it gets crowded

We also have had lunch here.

And it is maybe 5 or 6 miles away.

There is construction going on for a new brewery

and it looks to be really huge!

But in the mean time – they have set up a small park like area.

With tables – artificial lawn – stringed lights

a playground for kids

and a small tear drop trailer that is converted into a kitchen!

It is called Crooked Hammock Brewery!

I had one of them from a small TIKI LIKE HUT

next to the tear drop trailer.

It was what I wanted – not too heavy

and a hint of coconut aftertaste.

Now that may not sound good to you

but I enjoyed it and would drink it again.

I do not like IPA’s or heavy beer.

While sitting there at a long table all by ourselves

a table that could easily seat 10 or 12 people.

I noticed another couple with masks on purchase a couple beers

in cans from the brewery.

They had no where to sit

so I invited them to sit at the other end of our long table.

We carried on a conversation and found out at one time they had lived near us in Northern Va.

They had done the same as us and had purchased a condo

overlooking the marina – where we had previously

had dinner with the McBrides and Sherry’s sister

at a place called CLARK’S!

We had met another couple – exchanged address’s

and phone numbers –

we had made new friends simply by offering a seat for them.

You never know as your day starts what will transpire.

What began with a brand new sunrise

turned into a fine day of walking – meeting new friends

and discovering a new brewery.

Life is good and getting better!

Papa’s World – lunch – I.C.W.- Barefoot landing – views!

Our view for lunch at Barefoot Landing!

I forget the name of the place we stopped for lunch –

but Sherry knows it from recommendations from friends

and our landlord!

It is Mexican – and has the best taco’s!

We have walked by it numerous times –

and she has said we must eat there!

It sits right on the ICW – Inter coastal Waterway!

We requested outside for social distancing!

We wear our masks – we do take them off when we are not around people.

Or – when there is room to stay distances away from them.

The view of the waterway is awesome –

watching the boats – walking the boardwalk

all while sitting at our table after the walk.

Enjoying being outside –

After lunch – we walked – around the area – enjoying the feel of Christmas.

By the time you are reading this – the Holidays have passed –

for I write ahead on a schedule I have created.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

PAPA’S WORLD!

Papa’s World – A wind storm – hunkering down!

It was very windy out – a storm had hit the gulf coast

and was working its way North only inland from where we were.

However – it was very windy

and here at Ocean Keyes – there are very large

old time growth of live Oaks and Pine trees!

The kind that soar way up into the sky!

This picture I took standing at the fourth floor landing

of the condo we are living in.

It still went high above me!

And the tree branches were swaying back and forth.

We went for a short walk and decided it was not safe enough!

Small pieces of branches were coming down.

Small but large enough to really hurt you

if they hit you!

Well – not this! LOL

But – we did go back inside to wait it out!

And we tracked the storm to see how long this would be this way!

We then went out onto the Lanai – which is all screened in.

The wind seemed to be more at the front of the condo

and although we could see it come across the small lake

we were comfortable sitting on the Lanai!

So – we had lunch and broke out the new game we bought

called Rummikub!

And ended up sitting out there for a couple hours

while the storm passed us by!

( SHE WON)

We have begun our new life

living life one day at a time.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World
