PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – Pelicans – sky – just a quiet evening at sunset beach pier!

View looking SW from the pier at Sunset Beach, N.C.

We decided after dinner to drive over the causeway to Sunset Beach –

park and then I had a beer and Sherry had unsweet ice tea –

paid our dollars and walked out onto the pier!

Soon a “V” formation of Pelicans flew overhead – and then another and another!

Pelicans flying with the West sunset.
The waves coming in and the sound they carry!
The calm of the evening – be patient – love – smile – be kind – make a better world.

A quiet evening on the pier – people fishing – people strolling and taking pictures –

surf – sand, and water –

a time to reflect on one’s self!

Papa’s World – Sunset at SUNSET BEACH Pier with family – from NWPA!

Looking NE on Sunset Beach – the reflection from the setting sun in the West.

Our family from NWPA drove 14 1/2 hours to be with us for one week – and the first night –

we took them to Sunset Beach to the pier – to experience the famous Sunset Beach – sunset!

My youngest son – Shawn and myself standing on the pier.
Sherry and Shawn’s step daughter Autumn on sunset beach pier.

The air was warm as was the water at 80 degrees.

Many people come here to fish until midnight when the pier closes.

Family is very important to us – and while they live far away – they remain in our hearts.

Papa – my oldest son Troy and Andrea – Sherry and Trisha and Shawn with Autumn.

A painting at the entrance to Sunset Beach Pier.

This was drawn and painted by one of the employees who work at the pier!

The morning – first a beach walk – then two mazes for the kids to work their way out –

and then to the pier to have ice cream before their parents get there from NVA!

View from the pier and in the middle is the MAZE with people walking through it!

The end of twelve days with the grandkids – Sunset Beach Pier – until next summer!

Papa’s World – our day on the beach at Sunset Pier!

Voted as one of the top ten beaches in the country – SUNSET BEACH, N.C.

We live on the mainland of Ocean Isle Beach – in this picture at the top right –

There is a very tall building – that is the West end of Ocean Isle Beach – with a channel between the islands.

Sunset Beach for some reason – is leveler – and shallow – and easier to walk.

However – it is also more crowded.

The pier – from which Sherry took this picture – has a historical walk with picture stations on both sides.

Going back some 300 hundred years of history in this area.

It cost one dollar to walk out – however, we purchase a pretzel and a drink and it did not cost us anything!

Papa walking the surf – the water was 70 plus degrees and the temperature 78 to 80 degrees.

We walked for over an hour in the water – and it was warm.

This beach is more level and is easier for me to walk – my hip does not bother me here!

As my Heart doctor has told me – “MOVE”!

Thanks for reading Papa’s World – SUNSET BEACH, N.C. is a beautiful vacation destination!

PAPA’S WORLD – the PIER AT SUNSET BEACH, N.C.

Papa’s World – Sunrise – warm day – Gators and Deer at the beach!

Sunrise in Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach, N.C.

It was the start of a beautiful February day – warm sun – in the 70’s – clear skies!

We can see both the sunrise and sunset from the end of our driveway.

And yes – it does get somewhat cold and windy here – but then you get three or four days of

summertime back home weather!

In the high 60’s to mid 70’s – perfect days!

At the end of this street is a trail entrance that walks around the pond and through the woods.

I have only seen the one gator in here – but others have seen two and still other little ones.

It even has otters that have been seen and tons of turtles!

The gator sunning itself.

There seems to be an old raised farm road here – and the gator is always in this area.

I have seen long-legged birds stand here and it is not deep.

Weeds will grow up and out of the water.

The path is graded and is some 12 feet wide – it goes into the woods.

It is like black cinder stones and when you get into the woods –

is covered in orange pine needles!

I always watch for snakes and have only seen one large black snake on the path.

We turned around and went back the way we had come.

Now on the other end – it comes around the pond and there is marsh and water on the other side.

So – we watch both sides –

you can see where that gator or another one has come up and crossed the path!

This is just how it is living in this part of the South.

The parking lot for the pier at Sunset Beach, N.C.

There were three deer there and one went into the bushes as I took the picture!

Those bushes and shrubs are thick and you could hear them as they went through.

I saw a picture someone took of a big buck coming out of the surf under the pier!

I have never seen them this close and they blend in really well with the landscape!

We also have seen a large flock of Turkeys back in Cameron Woods –

and I got pictures of them.

My car is a hybrid – so it makes very little noise when you are going slow.

I was able to get to about twenty feet from them!

Large birds and just disappeared into the trees.

EVERY MORNING!

It was a beautiful day – sun – wildlife – warm and a fine beach day for walks.

Thanks for reading PAPA’S WORLD
