Papa’s World – when friends come together!

This time it was our home for one day and a day on the ICW – and then golfing.

We gathered at our home for an overnight – then on to Magnolia Greens to the McBrides for three nights.

Last two years we made the trip to WNY to stay with our friends back home.

We golfed on Friday – then picked up our WNY friends at the airport. Golfing is always a competition –

ladies vs. men!

And it is always too close to call after 18 holes!

The airport run was made and we moved to the McBrides just outside Leland, N.C.

We rehashed old times – had a few drinks – listened

to music and the next morning drove back to OIB to show our friends from WNY our home.

Later – we all went to OIB Fish Company to depart on an afternoon pontoon boat ride.

Papa shedding his shorts for swimming trunks – a good thing because of all the boat traffic – we hit waves that washed up and over us – getting wet was part of the fun and cool off!

This day it was a swimsuit!
Papa and Sherry – Jim and I traded off on steering the boat.

We were out there for four hours – going North to Holden Beach and then back South to Sunset Beach before returning to OIB!

Nature’s resources on the ICW – are awesome!

PAPA’S WORLD – when friends come together – boating the ICW!

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – Fun times – old friends – get together.

Eating dinner after our four-hour boat ride on the ICW at OIB Fish Company – OIB

The four couples have been friends going on 35 years and some over 40 years.

We try to get together at least once or twice a year –

made more difficult because some still live in WNY and another couple in Va. Beach.

While Sherry and myself live 32 miles from the McBrides now.

A little humor to start your day!

We all rented a pontoon boat for four hours to cruise up and down the ICW from OIB – to Holden Beach and back to Sunset Beach – where we saw a lone Dolphin for over 15 minutes diving for food in 8 feet of water.

It was really busy being labor day weekend – countless boats going both ways and creating waves!

PAPA’S WORLD – FUN TIMES – OLD FRIENDS – GETTING TOGETHER!

Papa’s Worl – Go-cart racing – OIB Fish Company – Family fun times.

Sherry – Sarah – Maddy – Debby – Mike – Ella

It was family time – a little bit of competition – racing GO-CARTS!

I sat this one out as I had a little kink in my back!

But – they all had a blast – round and round!

We found out later that the next day they were completing shooting a movie right there!

We had passed huge white tents being set up and there were flashing road signs – saying the movie set filming would be the next day.

Then I read in the news that they had already filmed at the track and were coming back to wrap it up!

The OIB FISH COMPANY restaurant – docks and boat landing.

Before the go-carts, we went to OIB FISH COMPANY to the top Tiki deck to have lunch!

And then down the stairs to the open-air bar to watch the boats coming and going.

Family fun time at the bar watching the boats and the ICW!

We packed as much exploring time along with the beach as we could.

Being this was not a whole week as the older girls – who are college students-

had to return for work.

But – we did do the beach every day – we took them all into North Myrtle Beach

Leaving so many things to do when they come back.

Thanks for reading Papa’s World and our family time with the Myers.
