Papa’s World – Just things in life!

Is there anyone out there that does not look at themselves in a mirror

and wonder
“HOW DID THIS HAPPEN”? LOL

Things in life – we eat to survive – but we also do by habits!

Evening sunsets!

Things in life : We look at the heavens –

wondering – seeing painted pictures.

The stars at night – the Moon and planets – clouds – storms –

the wonder of nature –

The questions – WHO WHAT WHY WHERE WHEN all form when looking toward the heavens!

We move about – we share thoughts – we adapt and we move on.

The things in life – ever changing – the World revolves –

We age – we think back –

and then – you are a senior –

Where did it go?

Our minds are a wonderful place – we see and then we re see!

Sometimes it takes a second –

but we mostly can tell!

Things in life do not always seem to be as we see them!

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 – first-time visit to Fat Harolds for neighbors and sister-in-law!

In North Myrtle Beach is a club called Fat Harolds – and this is the third location in the last 80 years!

It all started in the early ’40’s – on the beach – a Pavillion – where the beach music scene started.

The original club was taken out in the ’50s by a hurricane.

The music was started in the Carolinas and became a nationwide dance – called the SHAG!

Until the pandemic – they held national and international competitions here at Fat Harolds.

It is a combination of some Jitterbug – Swing – Boogie – and I think either six or eight steps!

You never lose contact with your partner and the intricate steps are fascinating to watch.

On Wednesday nights the crowd swells – to where there is no room on the dance floor!

This is now our generation coming here to dance – and man are they ever good!

You can tell by the shoes – men and women wear special dancing shoes!

But I see younger people also here – the next generation is now coming –

after all – it now is 80 years and still going strong.

There is a radio station right on the beachside of Ocean Drive – 94.9 THE SURF

They play all the beach songs – and classics – but there is music and songs dedicated to this era –

and some national bands that play nothing but beach music as it is called here.

Every six months – Spring and Fall – they have a 7 to the 10-day festival – here in NMB –

All the clubs take part – live music in all of them and live music on the beach in the square.

Thousands of people come here to stay and dance.

The Pandemic cut it back but now it is back after a year off.

And Wednesday nights they broadcast live from Fat Harolds – playing all the beach sounds.

Shagging – once again!

Our neighbors – Steve and Diane – Sherry’s sister Debbie – Sherry and Papa.

Their first visit and experience at FAT HAROLDS on the BLVD SHAGGING! North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

Papa’s World – The power to take your life in a new direction!

It was not easy to decide to sell our home – almost everything in it –

and move to another state – some 450 miles away!

It all started with the stock market slide – around the time the Pandemic hit!

Our retirement is in the 401 K and it took a big hit!

But – there is always a but!

The housing market was taking off!

From the last reduction in prices around 2006 –

and losing in that market –

We were now almost even – a rebound!

And it was going up!

Our oldest grand kids – Maddy Sarah Ella

With the three oldest grand kids

One in college – one in the fall in college and one who has a life of her own

And the three little ones – we would make it a point to return often –

after all – we were retired – and Sherry had her home based business –

that could go anywhere with phone and internet service

We would sell!

AND WE DID!

After 14 1/2 years – with the downturn behind us in the housing market

WE MADE A PROFIT and had all of our equity!

We followed our plan – sold our house and furniture –

for three months we went back and forth between our daughters houses!

We had our equity to either rent – or buy – we had choices!

And then by chance – I stumbled upon this – having no thought of moving to S.C. !

Our view today – we left end of September and went to North Myrtle Beach to Ocean Keyes!

Since that time – we have been home twice – holidays for three weeks – and now for a week!

The grand kids have been down – the little ones – and by the time you read this –

the older ones will have been here!

Our family – when we returned for a visit.

Our family when they came to visit!

We have started a new life – away but close enough to make it home in seven hours.

We are happy in our senior years – living life to the plus each day!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY

A new life – walking the beach every day –

We have each other – we have family and we have friends.

It was not easy – but God works in ways I can not explain.

We have started a new life and a new house build!

It will be done around the early part of June!

We had no idea a year ago we would be doing this!

Papa’s World – once more – a trip back to the hood – NMB – pick up mail – visit HOTO’S!

We decided to just sit for a while – share some fries and her ice tea and me a cold IPA!

Every Friday – in season – 94.9 THE SURF radio station – broadcasts live from the outside TIKI bar!

If you listen to BEACH MUSIC of the last 60 some years – it comes from here – as the station is right next door.

It was a beautiful morning – and we were notified by the next occupants of the condo – we had mail there!

The mail system – well – no matter how hard you try to change address’s – some seems to always slip through.

Sitting in the open air HOTO’S TIKI BAR AND GRILL right on the NMB main street entrance.

In the far left corner is where the radio station broadcasts from. Their main station is in this building –

We did not know about BEACH MUSIC until we moved down here.

After all it is only from starting in the ’40’s and right straight through to today – still producing tunes we like.

A lot of the music was what I called MOTOWN but to my surprise was produced for the Carolina beach crowds!

Our little drive back here is only thirty minutes in nice easy traffic. And for $2.00 a hour you can pay –

or park and walk – either way it is a deal!

This is where OCEAN DRIVE and MAIN STREET North Myrtle Beach join – at what I call the ARCHWAY

to the main entrance to the beach!

Full of bars and grills – stores – ice cream – hot dogs and fish places everywhere to eat!

– music and free concerts all through the seasons.

We like this area and it is safe to walk around in – I do not care for the main Mrytle Beach –

and I would not walk around there after dark!

Going back to the “HOOD” where we lived for nine months!

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH – 94.9 THE SURF – HOTO’S bar and grill on the beach.

ON THE BEACH main street entrance just outside HOTO’S bar and grill!

Papa’s World – walking home from the beach through Ocean Keyes – part three!

One of six pools – this one has the work out room in it and this pool is heated! A propane grill and sometimes two are at each pool area with others scattered through out the property.
Our little postal building – one of two in the Ocean Keyes that I know about – this one is a five minute walk for us. We mail out here also.
HHHHHHHHMMMMMMNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!! Not saying anything! LOL!
I told Sherry – I would like these flowering bushes in our back yard along with several Crepe Myrtles! This also is the closest pool to us – right across the parking lot and not many people use it. It also has grills and bathrooms.
Turned the corner from the postal building and heading to the stop sign and turn left for one more block. The lake is straight ahead between those buildings.
After turning left – then you walk the length of one building and turn right – the parking lot is here and building # 39 is on the right. We are on fourth floor in number 44!
The last walk in front of building 39. There are old – old growth tall pine trees and living oaks all through Ocean Keyes -I would guess well over 100 years old or twice that!
Thank you for reading PAPA’S WORLD – WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY – FAMILY MEETS FRIENDS!
The parking lot – where we park our car – we would of loved to stay here and we could have – however – there is no garage and little storage – many people have units for storage off site.
“FOUR PLEASE”!

Our home for nine months – 3944 – 3 bedroom – 2 bathroom – kitchen – dining room – living room and a very large screened in Lanai with sliding glass doors from the living room and the master bedroom.

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 – A mail box on the beach entrance and a journal – FELLOW TRAVELER

It started out with a warm morning – but a breeze early and a beautiful dawning of another day.

We decided to walk early – before it gets too hot!

So – we started out and went to the 10th. avenue beach entrance –

the one where they held EASTER SUNRISE SERVICE on the beach which we attended and I wrote a blog about!

Upon walking the walkway to the deck and stairs – we found a new addition!

It was a MAIL BOX with “FELLOW TRAVELER” painted on top!

Inside was a note book – journal – and already half full with notes from FELLOW TRAVELERS!

There also is one at the end of Sunset beach that was in the news –

I had read about it and how it had been there for 40 years!

And the journals are in a historical museum to be preserved!

Sherry took the journal out and already it is half full of splendid notes and thank yous!

Many interesting reads and dates – so she added her own!

I think this is a wonderful idea.

THANK YOU FOR READING PAPA’S WORLD!

We continued our walk onto the beach – with fantastic calming skies!

Gray clouds with the breaking of blue skies – the clouds moving inland away from the beach!

Papa’s World – Friends – last day – golf at The Valley – East port – dinner – SNOOKY’S – ocean

Sherry and Pam – about to start our golf adventure – Pam could not golf – still recovering from a achilles surgery

On their last full day – Bob wanted to play golf – we last played together I would guess 1965 or 1966!

A very long time ago – and he had their clubs in the RV but had not used them all winter.

Pam – who was still recovering from surgery on her heel – would do the driving and Bob rode with me.

Bob and I went to school together from grade one to grade twelve.

They have wintered the last two seasons in their RV – this time it was in Florida.

They made it a point to stop here on their way to family in Nashville before heading home in N.H.

Sherry and Pam
Waiting to tee off – we like this course which sits right on Rte. 17 in Little River – S.C. It is a short course but fun to play. Sherry and I have golfed here alone and with friends.
Now – she hits it on the fairway most times – and every once in a while – will hit it just right and bingo – it goes a long ways – here is a 298 yard hole for her – and this is her drive!

When you play a scramble and her and Cindy hit from the women’s tees – it is good to have them both on your team!

After a good day of golf – we scrambled to a 44 on both nines – we took them to Cherry Grove to one of our favorite places to eat – “SNOOKY’S” on the Beach.

This has become our go to place to take visitors – food is good – and you sit ocean front just yards off the sand.

We have many – many memories of growing up together in a small town in NWPA – called Eldred.

Many adventures of sleeping out under the stars – roaming the streets after curfew at 10:00 PM.

Nothing bad – raid a garden or two – sneak some beer – campfire – canoe trips down the river –

playing sports together – proms – dances – joining the exployer’s together-

driving – family – both his and mine.

Bob and Sherry checking out the beach where we walk every day!
Pam and I a selfie while they discuss the beach!
Ending our day together – walking to the cars. Pam and Bob!

Papa’s World – morning sunrise – blue skies – late afternoon – thunder – lightening – RAIN!

Morning sunrise – calm – warm – partial clouds – then blue skies – a start of a beautiful day!

It started out with sunshine and we walked the beach – and the neighborhood –

But – the storm was out there – coming up from the South – West!

We did get all our steps in and had dinner – a beautiful day here in S.C. North Myrtle Beach – Ocean Keyes!

Our beach walk in the morning – on Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.
And then 12 hours later – it blew in and it started to rain!

The sky turned from blue to gray – clouds were rolling in – thunder and lightening!

The wind picked up – Sherry started to go out the front door – the side of the condo the storm was coming from!

She had a hard time holding the door so she closed it!

The lightening was bad and the thunder shook us.

This was the first real storm in the day light we have had since being here!

I have to admit – it got a little bit scary!

The wind just whipped the rain almost sideways!

This went on for a couple hours – and lightening on and off!

I do like a good storm to fall asleep with – lightening – thunder and rain – but can do without the wind!

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 – early morning sunrise and then early walk on the beach – before 7:30 am. !

The sun peaking above the tree line – this is in the direction of Cherry Grove – North Myrtle Beach is too the right – beyond that tree live is Ocean Blvd and then the beach.

It was a warm morning – 73 degrees – and Sherry had said she wanted to walk early!

The view here is like this every morning when there are no clouds!

It is one half mile to the gated entrance on Hillside drive.

We walk this almost every day – and then turn left and walk up two blocks to 8th. street.

Turn right and walk one block to Ocean Blvd. – cross the street –

and walk into the parking lot – we like this lot – it has a bathroom – and a shower to wash the sand off!

It also has a boardwalk from the parking lot – to a deck and then steps right onto the beach!

In . 66 of a mile – we are standing on the beach!

Here I am standing on the deck before the steps to the beach!

Early morning sunrise – ten minute walk from our condo.

We will miss this but in thirty minutes from our new home – we can be back here!

Sherry at the deck at the end of the ramp to the beach on 8th avenue – North Myrtle Beach!
We begin our walk North toward the Cherry Grove Pier – beautiful day – sun shine on the water.
Sherry walking on the surf edge – actually the water felt somewhat warm on the feet!

Papa’s World – beach day – warm sun – but cool breeze off the Ocean – three hours – relaxing!

She said to me after about a hour – you can not lean back in this chair and take a nap!

And she was right – while we had different chairs – you couldn’t in mine either!

Papa – checking my phone for Pandora – seeing how much battery life was left!

Music to the left and music to the right – I just turned it off!

Depending on the wind – I could hear one or the other and with no wind – Both!

But – what a beautiful day – almost 80 degrees – hot sun but cool breeze off the ocean.
And then they have to put it on the right way! LOL!

We decided to stay for two hours and then we added another hour,

Since we had eaten almost everything we had brought with us –

We decided that was enough and went back to the car –

Yes – instead of walking down – we drove only because we had our chairs-

speaker – drinks – little table and the food and towels!

Those three hours involved some walking – some reading and some listening to the music and watching a kite and people watching!
Soon – it would be back to the condo and this view – either way we win!

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – random pictures – kids – golf – and a rainbow in the fountain on the lake.

Today – I post some pictures – just random pictures – but ones I have close to my heart!
Taylor holding MorMor’s hand – in turn MorMor also holding Bode’s hand.

They adore Sherry – whom they call MorMor – Swede for Mothers Mother!

When we walk with all three – it usually is Taylor who loses out to the other two in holding her hands.

This time it was Cassidy – who with each passing day – is becoming more and more independent.

These two are coming closer and closer together as they grow up.

They are twins – but had to come early as Taylor was taking all the nutrients.

Taylor is going to be really tall – close to six foot while Cassidy will be like her mother 5’6″.

Taylor loves to ride horses – Cassidy has a variety of interests –

but will sit for hours drawing off her computer and is really good!

I thought this to be funny – it brought a smile to my face!

We moved south to find more time to golf – warmer weather and being close to our friends!

Sherry and Cindy – we have been friends with the McBrides for almost 35 years.

They moved about 25 or 26 years to the Wilmington N.C. area – and we would spend time with them once or twice a year.

Then we moved to NVA and they would do the same.

Now – we are building a new home about 40 miles away from them –

and if the weather is nice – we golf once a week with them –

always on a new course – could be on the weekend or a week day.

They can and do stay with us and we do the same with them.

If our new home is not done on time and we have to give up the condo – they have offered us a place to stay.

FRIENDS! GOOD TIMES! LAUGHS!

This is what we have wanted to do for a very long time – it was too expensive in NVA and down here so many courses to choose from.

We both have a love to golf – one of Sherry’s highlights in golfing came with the day she broke 50 –

and it was a day she was golfing with her father!

A memory she shall always carry with her on the course. Now – she beats me! LOL

The view we have almost every morning when we wake up – the master bedroom has a big glass sliding door on her side of the bed – where all she has to do each morning is open her eyes and see this.

I see it each morning also – but I always am up before the dawn – have been that way all my life.

My favorite time of the day – writing my blog – sipping my coffee and watching the sun rise –

listening to the sounds of nature and just enjoying morning time.

Now the sun shines – causing a rainbow in the mist of the water fountain!
A peaceful setting we shall miss when we leave – but we have had by the end – nine months.

A memory we shall carry forward into the new home.

You can hear the pounding surf a half mile away –

We walk there almost every day –

the water fowl – geese – ducks – mallards – swans – otter – turtles – snakes

and really huge fish we can see when we look down onto the water.

Storms blowing in and out – rain and wind – nature at its best.

It would of been nice to have lived to the left of the picture – single family homes!

But – they were way too expensive – and the condos here – not enough space and no garage.

We have a storage unit – not a lot – but enough so that it would not fit.

The town houses here besides the condo’s – were out of our price range –

plus the one we looked at – needed a lot of work.

This is a beautiful area – one I shall remember –

We were blessed to have spent time here – but it also was expensive!

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – Memories from the last six teen months – Ocean Keyes – S.C. – new home.

On October 1st. 2020 – this became our new home for nine months!

We had no idea we would end up in North Myrtle Neach.

My friend would ask me WHY we choose there?

Well – the best answer I can give is I came across this condo –

on a site that listed houses and condos for sale!

I expanded the search area and this picture or one like it – came into view!

I showed it to Sherry and we decided right there and then we would rent it!

First – for three months – then we extended it to five months –

all because we looked and looked and decided it was just as good to build –

as it was to buy! We could have what we wanted and not upgrade someone’s home!

So – we made our choice in Cameron Woods – across the border into N.C.

It would be a brand new build and we set about making our selections –

and at that time we extended our lease until the end of June!

Which would be a total of nine months!

We tried very hard to stay in this area – but cost and being too close to the Ocean

played a big part in where we ended up!

We are with in four miles to a beach and six miles to another beach!

We can drive one half hour back here to North Myrtle Beach.

We are in a new development – and right in the middle of a dozen golf courses!

We are in the country but a mile and one half to a gas station and a couple miles to a Publix!

In November we signed our contract and made all our selections.

We are on schedule for a early June closing!

We will walk a beach everyday – which has been our dream – we have a community of neighbors we have already met.
Our new home – roof done – siding almost done – stacked stone done – doors and windows – done – plumbing done – electrical done – insulation done – dry wall to start and by the time this is published – will be done – as will most of the inside – outside trim – almost done – utilities – connected – we are almost there!

Papa’s World – more memories of the past six teen months – living life one day at a time!

Debby Ella Mike Papa Sherry Sarah Maddy

On our way back home to NVA – we stopped in Lynchburg to watch Maddy –

Our oldest granddaughter – play soccer!

She starts as a Sophomore – and plays for the University of Lynchburg.

One thing she wanted to do – to get out in the fresh air and hike with her family!

Which we did on this paved trail that runs along the river in Lynchburg Va.

Gerhard and Jennie

One of our very first visitors after we moved to Ocean Keyes in North Myrtle Beach –

was the father and mother of our son in law – Marcus.

They came down and spent four days with us – playing cards – walking the beach –

and introducing us to a new game called RUMMIKUBE!

We have always gotten along with them and every Sunday – sat beside them in the pew!

A short visit – Sherry Sarah Debby – came to visit – Mike could not be here – Maddy was in college.

Debby and the two granddaughters came for a short visit –

and we took them hiking – which they love to do – at Vareens memorial Garden.

Walking along the ICW and over the marsh.

They will be back as we took them also to the new house build!

Carol and Mike – our close neighbors back in WNY for 12 1/2 years!

Mike and Carol – we lived next door to them – invited us and our friends – we have all been friends for years-

to their lake house in WNY -Lake Chatauqua – for a long weekend of riding the lake in their beautiful boat!

They have extended another invitation for this August – the same group – for four days!

They own a business that sends crews to do commercial painting all over the East Coast

and this year are expanding to the mid west.

Mike – started this when he was very young — and what a company he has turned it into!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World!

Cindy Papa Sherry Carol

On the lake in Mike and Carols boat!

All eight of us fit very comfortable – we spent three days cruising the lake for hours at a time!

All eight of us have been friends for years and years!

Memories of the past 16 months continues in the next blog! Join – it is all free!

Papa’s World – In a little over two months – we will leave this behind – another sunrise!

We have been here since 10-1-20 – and this never gets old – the view and sunrise each day!

Building our new home – coming back to here each day – soon – it will be over!

We have until the end of June here – a total of nine months-

We never expected to be here that long – but when we decided to build

We extended the months – hoping we would be done and able to move.

We have plans in case something prevents that!

Ready to move out – put excess in a strorage unit we have three miles from our new build

and move in with friends who have offered!

We moved everything we had in NVA in storage – down here so we could grab whatever we needed.

We should be able to move it a little at a time!

We are expecting to close early June and have been told we still are on schedule!

The house is sided and the trim done on the outside – the stacked stone is done.

The roof is complete as is the electrical and plumbing.

The doors and windows are all in and this week the insulation should be done

and dry wall next week.

We are moving forward – and we have memories and pictures such as these!

We love it here – but – no garage and not enough storage space for what we have.

This area is great and we are only one half hour away.

We can visit anytime we want – there is parking by the beach.

One more view – one more sunrise.

Papa’s World – Spring has Sprung – the Beach got busy – and they are in the water!

Here is our before 9:am. early morning walk – a little more crowed but nothing not expected! Looking South to North Myrtle Beach from where we enter the access to the beach.
From the beach access looking toward Cherry Grove – a few more people – but not a lot!

But – this is the beginning of the week for Spring Breakers –

and we noticed traffic getting heavey.

We have found our way around and avoid the high traffic on rte. 17!

We take the side streets as far as we can – and one side street takes up to where we can shop!

Now – in the afternoon we decided to do a couple hours of a beach day – taking and carrying our chairs to the beach. Here is the same view looking toward North Myrtle Beach – a lot more people and a lot of people in the water. But we still had our own space – no one within thirty feet of us!
Here is the same view in the afternoon looking toward Cherry Grove! And – it will get more crowed as Spring turns into Summer with vacations! We are in the open space and avoid large gatherings which happen mostly toward North Myrtle Beach town center. A lot of young H.S. and college students gather on the beach there in a large group. You just avoid them as they will do what they do regardless!

Being here is still our dream – we will come back often as we like it here –

but also where we are moving too – no traffic – country quiet – we can walk –

and still be in access to the other two beaches!

The beach here is very wide – I have been told it is the widest on the Grand Strand!

Papa’s World – finally – we got a warm day for the beach and water – FAMILY KROHN!

TAYLOR CASSIDY BODE

Once it was in the mid to high ’70’s and full sun –

Into the water they went!

Notice how protective Cassidy is of her little brother!

They fight and argue – but no one touches him according to her!

These two should have been the twins

they act and sound just alike.

She is so kind – loving and thoughtful.

Cassidy and Bode – two peas in a pod!
Taylor – or “TATTER TOT” as her cousin Ella calls her!

She on the other hand loves her alone time away from the other two! LOL!

She rides horses – and whenever around her MorMor – holds her hand.

She is the serious – studious one who quotes facts!

“AS AMATTER OF FACT” she says and then goes on to tell you!

BODE – after FIVE GRAND DAUGHTERS – he is the only boy and all boy!
Only six years old – and will be tall like Taylor!
Bode – cars – trucks – bikes – playing Army – running – riding – scraps – bruises – scabs – star wars – monsters – independent – never wearing shoes or socks and shirtless in the cold!

It was a very warm day in the sun – water to me was very cold – but they loved it!

Taylor is goin to be really tall like her MorMor – I think close to six foot!

They played and played in the water – coming out to run up and tell us something and then back they went!

For us – it was sit and take it all in – the sun was warm which is what I like!
Cassidy – small but a spitfire! Always calling her MorMor as does Bode! Love you Papa she says!

Yes – the sun was warm – the sand was also – yet the water was cold – but to them – it was their day at the beach!

Papa’s World – “DUCK PROTECTION” Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach!

Almost everyday when we go for a walk to the beach – we pass this one house –

it sits exactly at the other end of our small lake – next to the gate –

and this area is where all the ducks – geese and swans hang out.

I did not notice the sign until maybe a month ago.

You see – there is a ton of really nice landscaping in and around this home.

Which sits right on the water with a extensive raised patio and surrounded by trees – bushes and flowers.

There is also a metal fence with a gate that is always open and concrete steps

that go right down and into the water.

THE DUCKS USE THESE STEPS TO ACCESS THE YARD AND PATIO!

The fence and sign bordering the property! LOL

It does not really have to be left open or even there – they fly over it!

They hang out in the yard and the people seem to love it!

Here they are perched on top of a sluice – next to the fence to the yard.

There are three white ducks that I call Huey – Dewy and Louie – who are there all the time.

They use the steps the most.

Then there are some really ugly looking ducks – with great big red things on their heads and brown and white.

They hang around in the yard and one time I seen one entering the open garage door!

Huey Duey Louie
This is the area they all hang out in.

There are dozens of water fowl here at any one time!

DUCK PATROL!

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – Slowly increasing my walking distance – hit 6 1/2 miles – new high! BEACH!

Sherry went to visit her sister – so I had no car – but – that did not matter – I walked!

I decided that instead of one big walk for the day –

I would break it up and do several smaller walks

So I walked four times!

And it was a total of 6 1/2 miles!

The first picture was the beach entrance I choose – after walking .60 miles to get there!

This picture is of me after walking onto the beach.

It was a great walk and the sun came out making it warm!

I choose this entrance because I walked a new path

and it brought me to this street.

You see – every street here running West to East –

ends in a beach entrance and most have parking lots!

So I turned left – North – and headed up the beach – back to our normal entrance!

It was almost to low tide – not many people there!

Looking back the way I had just walked! Still not many people!
The beach exit I choose – I came here because to the right is a ramp and it leads to a bench to sit down on. The sand has nearly reclaimed that part- but I find it peaceful to just sit and listen to the surf and watch the people!

Plus there is a boardwalk all the way back to the parking lot-

giving you time to clean off any sand in your shoes!

One last look down the beach from where I had just walked.

Papa’s World – took a little walk to the beach on my way back ran into Huey-Dewey-Louie!

Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

In this picture at the bottom of the lake – is a four story condo –

that is where we are renting until the end of June – 2021! TOP FLOOR !

We are in the middle with a full view of the lake!

There is a road way among the condo’s to the right – that is where we walk to the beach!

This would be the view only from the first floor condo – we are on the top floor.
Here you can see the map of Ocean Keyes – we are a short walk to the real estate office and once we exit on Ocean side Drive – it is two blocks to the sand and water!

We walk this area over to main street – Duffy main street seafood and many other stores.

The tennis courts and Pickle ball courts!

A short walk for us and right across the way from here is one of six pools!

There are six pools with bathrooms in this development and 780 condo units and town houses!
These are the town homes on the far side of the lake near the Hillside drive entrance.

We would of loved to buy one of these – but first there is a waiting list to buy

and second they were out of our price range!

We actually looked at one – it was well used as a second home and had to be completely redone on the inside

and did not have a view of anything other than some trees and bushes.

Walking – taking pictures – looking – where am I going? LOL
Some of the many condo buildings you walk past on the way to the Hillside Drive gated entrance!
Town homes and our condo in the far end of the lake! Top floor with the wide lanai to the left!
On my way back from the beach – just after you enter the gate from Hillside Drive –

I have named the three white ducks – for my own amusement –

HUEY DEWEY LOUIE!

They are together constantly – where one goes – so do the other two – all across the lake.

I have never seen them up on our end.

This day they were napping by the water

And within twenty feet – was the LONE SWAN!

I think this is a male as the other two will have nothing to do with it!
He too is napping!
The LONE SWAN!

I have decided to name him – for my own amusement – ” DARTH VADER”!

He cruises the lake by himself –

and when he comes near – they scatter away from him.

He is a lonely white swan.

The other two will have nothing to do with him and will chase him away!

Even he will take off and fly away from them!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – my walk back from the beach – Huey Dewey Louie and DARTH VADER!

Papa’s World – Lunch on the beach at Snooky’s and seeing DARTH VADER!

The view from the top deck and bar of Snooky’s on the beach – the other Snooky’s is situated on the ICW!

We decided after our attempt to walk the beach –

which was very windy and cold –

to drive back down the Ocean Blvd to Snooky’s!

Sherry and I brought Tammy and the little ones here when they visited.

Sarah and Debby at the table surrounded by heaters!

It was chilly out on the open patio.

We choose this because of the heaters and wanting to be out in the open

for social distancing.

Every other table was empty!

This was the last full day they would be here!

The four days have gone by so quickly.

We packed a lot into it – Mike is a teacher and could not come down.

Maddy is in college with her classes and in the middle of Spring Soccer.

Ella a senior in H.S. Debby – oldest daughter Sarah – youngest of the three – in 8 th. grade

We sat out there on the patio – when I heard Sherry exclaim ‘ THERE HE IS” pointing toward the beach!

She had read a article in the newspaper and seen the interview on TV.

A man who was dressing up as DARTH VADER in Myrtle Beach and walking up and down the beach

entertaining the children – with his Laser –

And he happened to be right here!

Sherry and Ella

Now Ella is a huge – huge Star Wars fan!

For her 16th. birthday as a present – we took her to Florida with us for a week.

And the highlight of that trip was her going to the STAR WARS park.

That was what she wanted to do forever!

DARTH VADER about to walk out on the beach!

So – they both got up – Sherry and Ella – and down the deck they went!

I went up on the top deck so I could get a clear picture of what was going on the beach!

Here Sherry and Ella are nearing DARTH VADER who is Laser fighting with a young boy!

She has Star Wars figurines from her youth – ever since she could walk and talk.

She has seen every movie – over and over again.

Ella and DARTH VADER!

This was one of her highlights of the entire trip to visit us at the beach!

And it was all by chance – we wanted lunch – we selected Snooky’s because it was close

And we knew they had heaters outside!

Papa’s World – in North Myrtle Beach a celebration with the GREEN – St. PATS

The IRISH came out in droves to celebrate and this bar was command central in the organizing of the festivities!

For the last four weeks – there was a on going struggle between the owners of the business’s

and the city council and the mayor of North Myrtle Beach!

A year ago the Covid 19 hit and everything went into lock down

The annual parade was canceled and places were deserted.

Many did not survive 12 months later!

A lot of store fronts are vacant!

The back and forth has been in the papers and on the local news!

The business were told they would be fined if they proceeded –

I do not know the inside story only what I read .

The parade was canceled even though hundreds of people showed up

with no masks and no social distancing.

Instead there would be a steady stream of golf carts

all decked out – business with bars – blocked off with yellow tape and orange cones.

The celebration would go on after one year!

Discounts and sales were everywhere – the merchants have been in a struggle for 12 long months!

We went to main street with our masks and stayed away – 6 feet from people.

Sometimes that was impossible.

Most of the bars are on one side of the main street!

We watched and took it all in – it was a happy feeling – even though we were aware of our surroundings.

It still was sad to see almost no one here even though the celebration was going on!

This main intersection would normally be crowded –

I really do not know just how they are staying in business!

Maybe – with Spring Break coming up – they will have customers.

A lot of people are condemning the celebration – but I do not!

We choose to walk over and see what was happening – maintaining a safe distance from people which was not hard to do.

We stayed away from the bars where most people were –

we found a place to sit and observe.

I hope that this was all worth it!

As we walked – we watched from afar across the street – the golf carts -the music and people spending money.
Across the street from where we walked.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

The IRISH came out – business once again on Main Street North Myrtle Beach!

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH – A CELEBRATION WITH THE GREEN!

Papa’s World – watching a house being moved from the beachfront!

A few blocks North of this beach entrance – a beachfront home was moved a block from the beach!

We had watch them jacking the house up on steel I beams –

cribbing and disconnecting all the electric and plumbing!

A second floor deck had been disconnected and a pool – in ground left there with a cement patio!

A long walkway to the beach with a sitting area at the end.

Two flags on a flag pole still waved in the breeze.

We wondered where it would go and how much this would cost?

The – a block away – lot was cleared – leveled and electric pole put in.

That was when we thought – is it possible it was being moved here?

And then one day last week – the electric went out and back on shortly after –

They – the movers had begun the move at 9:04 AM.

Traffic was blocked off – a lot of police cars and county officials and the moving company

and all of its equipment.

The electric had gone off and back on for them to disconnect the power lines and splice in once again.

The two story house was on the move!

Already crossed over four lanes of Ocean Blvd. moving slowly up the street to make the right hand turn onto Hillside drive.
Almost to the corner of Hillside drive.

A lot of people watching – HOW ARE THEY GOING TO MAKE THE TURN?

Almost there!
About to make the turn!
The turn is made – they would lay down huge wooden pallets for the wheels under the house to travel on the one side of the roadway grass!
From the rear – going down Hillside drive to the cleared lot! You can see the tracks in the road of the swing to make the turn.
Almost there after hours of slowly moving and repositioning the wooden pallets.
Finally in place after almost a full day – well into the afternoon!
Once a beachfront house – now a block away on a side street – the journey to this lot completed.

The house was moved – still left on the huge trailers with wheels.

I am thinking they will start soon to put a foundation under it!

I have no idea how much this cost – but the beachfront lot is worth a million or more.

Sherry Sarah Ella Debby – house and outhouse!

A house at the end of the rainbow! LOL!

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”!

The view from our condo – never gets old.

Douglas will stop overnight – on his journey back North from Florida.

Doug is first cousin to Sherry – both his grandmother and Sherry’s grandmother were sisters

and both from Sweden first generation.

Douglas and Sherry in our condo.

Doug is two years older and can speak fluent in Swedish.

He was a educator all his life – Principal – Superintendent and author.

With over 7000 followers on his twitter blog site.

This is the first time in I believe four years since we last saw him.

And – have invited him to stop in on his next journey through the area.

A lot of family history from both of them was discussed.

I love history – and family history is my observations I like to listen to.

I would sit for hours and talk to her mother about her and her family and childhood.

Papa’s World – finally – we have all our things in storage in Ocean Isle Beach!

We made a trip back North to NVA!

To make arrangements to move what is left of our belongings to Ocean Isle Beach

to a storage unit we rented some 3 miles from the new house being built!

That way – if the build goes beyond our lease date –

we have a place to store items and a place to stay with friends if needed!

Papa – waiting for the unloading to begin – a lot of stressful thinking off my mind!

My son in law handled the storage unit up North

and two days later we met the crew at the storage unit here.

MY GUYS MOVING – a shout out to them – they were very professional!

All of this – the move South – saying goodbyes – finding a place to build

It is a adventure – but nothing new – we have been this way all our married lives together.

We sold most of our furniture and made dozens of trips to Salvation Army- here is what is left!

Four thousand pounds!

That is what we moved to here.

We have now purchased almost all of our furniture to go with the new house.

This here is mostly personal stuff – things that are family!

Papa’s World – Where did the time go?

Our new home we are building in Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

We are building a new home – and where did the past almost 40 years go?

In fact – it seems like only yesterday – 1999 – we transferred to NVA from WNY!

Today – we are on another chapter of our life together.

And in a few months time – our house will be done and we will move in!

The back of the house – patio – and bump out window of the master bedroom – and behind sherry – will be all windows of the sun room.

This will be our third house we have built together.

Time has a way of just moving ahead and so fast!

The front porch and entrance to the front door.

We decided to build here – instead of buying – mainly because

We will have everything we want – for basically the same price!

The front door looking into the main hall way.

Everything in our price range we looked at – had to have updates –

or did not have a garage, or too small.

After coming in the front door – office to the left – bedroom to the right – and living room and sun room straight ahead.

Papa’s World – when friends meet up in the cold – bundle up – and enjoy!

Cindy Sherry Papa Buck

It was not planned – but we had weeks and weeks of non stop rain!

So – Sherry made the call – what are you doing to our friends

who now live some 50 miles from us!

Lets get together – you come here for a over night stay –

we will walk the beach if it does not rain!

So – they did – came down and stayed overnight!

Yep – story of our lives now!

We played cards – laughed – and walked.

The rain held off and the Sun came out – but was still cold!

We made the most of it!

Papa and Buck – on the beach – girls were going to walk to Cherry Grove Pier – we would walk back to the condo – pick up the car – and go back and pick them up!

They walked the two miles up to the pier –

we walked the mile back to the condo –

The wind was blowing – but on the beach –

The ladies said the sun kept them warm.

We picked up our car and drove up to the pier –

and got out and met them just as they arrived!

The pier at Cherry Grove – there were surfers in the water!

We walked a short distance up the beach –

Before we decided to get in the car and drive around.

We showed them the canals and cottages.

Stopped at the boat landing – and then returned to the condo!

So ended another great time with friends –

No rain – walking – games and just great fun.

Papa’s World – Walking the beach in the chilly – windy – air – living life!

North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

It has a way of pulling you – the sound – the air – and the chill!

We try to walk the beach every day – except during the rain!

I bundle up – because I do get cold easily!

They told me I would after I had my heart attack some 7 1/2 years ago.

And – that is true – I really do not like being cold!

Papa – neck warmer – ear muffs – gloves – warm jacket – I detest wearing hats!

So – this winter – I will take the chill – some rain – actually a lot of rain –

and some wind – but – I dress warm and toasty!

Papa walking the beach – staying warm!

I have found – NO SNOW – NO ICE – can make up for that chilly air and wind-

as long as I am warm I can and do walk!

Sherry – taking a picture of a deserted beach – she does not get as cold as I do.

Sometimes we are the only ones out there!

We will try it until the wind drives us off –

Sand blowing in ones face and eyes – well – I can do without that!

But then the Sun comes out – and those warming rays make all the difference!

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: THE SWANS HAVE RETURNED livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – the first household items that we could carry – and she is named Polly – The Pelican!

Good day everyone!

We have been furniture hunting – the whole house – as we have almost nothing!

We sold it all – 98 % of it – to the folks who bought our home!

While it has been somewhat stressful for my wife –

and me being the one who does not like to shop-

I AM LOVING THIS!

Another beautiful sun rise!

Yes – that is right! When we usually go shopping – I tend to find a place –

and sit and watch people!

Maybe with a cup of coffee or a bottle of water.

I find people interesting.

You can almost tell who they are by just observing!

So – here I am – looking at furniture – and I actually like doing this!

That is completely out of norm for me.

And has turned very stressful for my wife.

But -as of this writing with hoping 3 1/2 months to go to closing

The middle of May – I can say we have now completed 95 % of what we need!

We have one sun room to finish and some end tables!

There – right in the middle opposite the front door is the sun room!

We have ended up buying from three different stores –

with what will be three different deliveries!

And I still have to get our items we have in storage delivered to N.C.!

But – we were able to hand carry three items back to the car and then back to the Condo – in Ocean Keyes!

One table lamp – one floor lamp and meet POLLY THE PELICAN!

Our theme is going to be somewhat beach like –

since we will be only four miles to Ocean Isle Beach and six miles to Sunset Beach!

All in N.C. between Calabash and Shallotte.

We contacted the three little ones and they – ( CASSIDY) came up with the name for the Pelican.

You see – there was a smaller version already in the condo-

and I had told them I named it RALPH! LOL

They thought that to be funny!

THank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – another beautiful sunrise and then a cool day of golf!

Waking up to this every morning – at the end of June – nine months of this – memories for a lifetime!
Golfing with our close friends at a golf course way out in the country of N.C.

We awoke to a beautiful sunrise – a bit chiily –

But the forecast called for low 50’s but Sunny!

It makes a big difference with hardly any wind!

As the Sun continues to rise – clouds form but are suppose to clear away!

I have come to accept here in S.C. – that the day changes dramatically

the higher the Sun gets in the sky!

So – you prepare for the day – getting a mental image in your mind

dress in layers – drink your coffee or tea

and know that the day – will turn out okay!

Another painted canvas by nature!

So it goes – sunrise – sunshine – cool but no wind – warmth.

A fine day to be alive and a fine day to golf with friends!

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!

A walk along the boardwalk of the ICW

and the boats and Barefoot resort!

Papa’s World – crafting with MORMOR!

MORMOR – Swedish for MOTHERS-MOTHER – that has become her name for the three little ones!

Sherry has introduced crafts to all the grand kids –

and to this day – the three older ones still do crafts!

Taylor Bode Cassidy 10 6 10 years old.

All you have to do is say craft and the go right to the table – no fuss!

Busy once again – crafting – she teaches them and now Cassidy helps the other two. She is the one who texts – calls or zooms her MORMOR every day!
Cassidy – who can do any craft by herself – and often sets by herself with her IPAD – listening to instructions and creates pictures and drawings that are much larger than what she sees on the IPAD – drawing freestyle!

The older ones have that same talent – Ella has won awards for her creations.

Taylor – whom loves her alone time – building farms – houses – horses out of LEGO’S!
Bode -the one who is hard to slow down – always on the move – loves his craft time with MORMOR!

She teaches them – one at a time – not only crafts – but life itself!

Here they are after creating their make a shell wish – and MorMor helping to hang those wishes!

Papa’s World – when grand kids come to visit – love them all!

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!

We are all from Western New York

and were huge fans when Buffalo Bills made their four straight Super Bowls!

Papa’s World – Swans – they come and go – and bring joy and smiles for us!

We never know when the Swans will show up – first there were three – now there are two – you look outside and there they are.

I have seen them fly in one time – I have seen them take off and fly to the other end.

But I have never seen them fly off and leave!

But – when they are here – I find myself often glancing out of the lanai

searching for them cruising around –

or up on the bank – at the foot of the next condo!

I wonder to myself – what happened to the third one?

When they first appeared – there were three – and the big one would lead the other two around.

Then one day two disappeared and the one would just sort of hang out by itself

in the area all three would be.

After a week – I watched as the two flew in –

right outside the lanai – so close I felt like I could touch them.

And they landed just short of the fountain you see here.

The third hurried over to them!
