Papa’s World – Cameron Woods – sunrise – sunset – storm clouds in between!

Sunrise with clouds forming in Cameron Woods Community – OIB, N.C.

The storms were out there – but also clearing skies – we seem to get all these clouds every day from the ocean!

The blue sky was soon covered with a storm cloud!

This storm rolled in from the NE – from the ocean.

It got very still and hardly any wind – the rain would come.

Soon the western sky caught up and it started to rain.
Then toward the east – it started to break up – the rain had stopped for a few hours – it was drying up!

And then the sunset over Cameron Woods Community – another day – another beautiful cloudy sky.

THE SKIES OF CAMERON WOODS COMMUNITY – OCEAN ISLE BEACH, NORTH CAROLINA – LIVING THE SALT LIFE!

Papa’s World – OIB – 4th. of July golf cart parade!

Front row seats – 284 decorated golf carts – thousands of people.

We were front row with our chairs and the grandkids were so excited!

Here you see Bode – Taylor – Cassidy and Sherry.

It was a joyous celebration of our nations birthday!

There were also other participates in the parade!
Sherry ( MORMOR) Taylor Cassidy and Bode watching as the parade begins.
As the parade continued – dark clouds were rolling in – thunder in the distance!
The clouds rolled in and the thunder got loud – soon we saw lightening and we headed across the street beneath the wine – beer and coffee shop!
Just before we crossed the street – this man saw me take this picture and his comment was – THIS IS WHAT YOU WILL REMEMBER THE MOST ABOUT THIS PARADE – THUNDER- LIGHTENING- AND POUR DOWN RAIN FROM THESE CLOUDS and he was right – we made it just in time and two houses on the beach were struck by lightening – MOTHER NATURE PREVAILED!
Later that day – sunset – the storm cleared out – we made it back from OIB and all was well!

OIB – JULY 4th. GOLF CART PARADE – and then the RAIN CAME!

Papa’s World – when golfing – Irish eyes are smiling!

Good day to Ye!

My wife is of a Swede descent – and I am of Irish descent.

Our friends – he is also of Irish descent – and I think she is also.

The smiles of golfing friends!

We have known each other for almost 40 years!

And when we first started golfing together – Sherry and Cindy had not golfed!

They made fun of us washing the balls while they wore gloves to keep their hands warm!

That was back in WNY where we all were neighbors!

Papa – after hitting his drive on a par three – we pared the hole!

Today – that is much different as they have gotten quite good!

Sherry and Cindy – after the rain started – this time we were even after seven holes!

We play a scramble – us vs. them – and lately – they have given us strokes –

it is hard to beat pars – and we can’t putt! LOL

But – friends – laughs and golf and smiles – make for a great day!

WHEN GOLFING – IRISH EYES ARE SMILING!

PAPA’S WORLD – all at the same time – SUNSET – RAINING and a RAINBOW!

It was a light rain as I stepped outside on the back patio to see the sunset.
And behind me was a RAINBOW!

It was light rain all day – the kind that does the lawn and flowers just right.

And then – on the front driveway – I turned from the Rainbow and saw this!

Nature had painted the SUNSET – the rain still coming down and behind me was the Rainbow.

A fresh landscape – warm – wet – and the sky were painted white – gray blue and yellow.

It was the WHY we choose this home location.

Papa’s World – a cleansing with morning showers and then the Sun for a afternoon walk on the beach

A look outside from our porch – I heard the rain – a drizzle – cleaning everything in the early morning!
A look to the West as the sky is clearing – the next phase to be built is at the end of this street.
A look once again toward the East and the Ocean as the storm clouds continue to move.

It was a nice rain – lasting maybe a hour.

Enough so everything looked fresh and clean and it was a warm rain – 75 degrees at day break!

Then the Sun came out from behind the clouds!

We had the afternoon sunshine and warming up to 82 degrees!

The water has remained warm also at the ocean.

Making it a perfect way to walk the surf and beach!

Sherry stopping to take a picture of a large fishing boat just off Ocean Isle Beach – a ten minute drive for us to reach.
Ocean Isle Beach

Now that we are settled in and almost all of the repairs we listed have been completed

we are trying each day to go to the beach to walk!

It is so relaxing – and there are still people renting homes here!

We at the time I write this – almost one third of the way through October!

And it has been really beautiful weather –

low 70’s at night – 82 to 84 degrees and sunshine in the daytime!

WALKING IN SUNSHINE – PAPA’S WORLD

MY SITE: livinglifedoingitmyway.blog my contact email: fitztdf@aol.com PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – Red sky in the morning – Sailor take warning! It came in torrents – all day!

It was beautiful to start – soft pink glow – but you could feel it in the air – a storm was coming!

The sky was a soft pink color – but you also could see the strom clouds.

It was so peaceful walking outside to take some pictures – no sounds – not even birds.

My place to sit and sip my coffee – it is from here I walked out to take the pictures.
You could feel the storm in the air.

Later it began to rain – I was able to sit on the porch as the wind was coming from behind the house.

The rain turned heavy and the wind blew it away from me.

Later that afternoon we discovered a leak on the roof and reported it – they came the next day and repaired it!

I feel we were very lucky to have been home when this happened and not away on one of our trips.

It rained all day and into the night – stopping in the next morning for them to fix the roof.

RED SKY IN THE MORNING – SAILOR TAKE WARNING
PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – early morning – cloudy – gray clouds – is a storm brewing? Yes – it rained all day!

Looking East – toward the sunrise – Ocean Isle Beach – four miles away.

It looked and felt like rain – warm – slight breeze –

there is one house left to build here on this street before the turn –

and they have already framed and covered it in with plywood and starting the shingles for the roof.

There are four maybe five more that are very close to closing

and then the construction continues beyond what you see –

and winds around to a dead end that we can see in a distance from our back yard.

You can just see through the woods where they are building.

Hoping that all the construction on the street back there is done by the end of the year!

Then it moves to the opposite – the West end where they are putting in infrastructure!

The stormclouds on the West side and at the end of the street is where the infrastrucure is now going in!
Looking SW and beyond those trees – far back is the new infrastructure – we can not see it!

That tree line is protected – and can not be cut back or down!

Which is one of the reasons we choose this location!

Full of wildlife – natures sounds and yes – I believe there are snakes in there!

So – I am always looking before I step = better to be safe – but this is also full of birds –

so we have now put up a bird feeder!

We love the natural setting!

The Sun made a effort to peak through – but the clouds kept coming!

So – it went – hour by hour and then a gentle rain started – getting a little bit heavier – and lasted all day!

A good soaking rain – no lightening or thunder!

Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

Papa’s World – on our first night staying with our daughters house – STORM rolls in!

We had arrived and settled in from Winchester – Lake Holiday – Cross Junction – our other daughters home.

The day was uneventful until late afternoon – the sky turned deep gray – and the clouds seemed to be rolling!

They were scary – rolling across the sky!

A storm was coming!

It was like this in front of the house also – the wind picked up and we could hear thunder in the distance

to the West.

In the distance – sort of pink clouds – but overhead – dark gray!

Lightening began and then the rain came!

The wind picked up – looking out the front window – I could see the major portion of the storm –

coming over the hills toward us – flashes and then the thunder.

Then the first time we lost all lights!

The electric went out!

The rain came in hard – beating against the front windows!

The lights came back on!

The thunder continued and flashes of lightening!

Did not seem to phase the newest member of the family – MARLEY!

The electric went out several times and came back on – the rain got harder – later we learned trees had come down

and one house was struck by lightening out Winchester way and burned down.

It was a severe storm – first one of the late spring – and then the lights went our for good!

We all decided after it calmed down – with no lights but still a little daylight to see –

to just go to bed while we still could see.

Later – the electric came back – I think it was out a couple hours – and then we had to get up and turn lights off!

A eventful first night back at our daughters house in Leesburg Va.

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!

The start of the game – cold – 35 degrees – steady rain – SOCCER!

We traveled five hours NW to Va. to Lynchburg –

our grand daughters first home contest of the delayed season!

Maddy Myers – number 13 – waiting for the start of the game!

As a Freshmen – she played in 13 games – now a Sophomore –

the first game she had a assist and two near misses in a 2-0 victory!

Out family – father Mike – Mother Debby – sister Ella and grandma – Sherry – Ella will be attending Randolph College in the Fall to play soccer – right across town and will compete against her sister for two years!
Hard to see but she is in the middle far side above the Y about to pass the ball!

She carries a HIGH GPA – and as a Sophomore – because of that GPA –

was able to have a room in the buildings right behind her!

She is a determined young lady – her last two years of travel –

she drove herself 65 miles each way so she could compete with the best in the

Metro D.C area in Loudoun County – a hot bed of recruiting for college soccer.

Steady rain – but we stayed watching her and the game.

The entire team waiting for the start of the game in the cold and rain!

Near the end of the game – a 4 to 1 victory and 2 – 0 on the young season!

Papa”s World – Walking with friends on the beach!

Good morning – afternoon or evening!

Or just plain GOOD DAY!

Good day is what we had when the first morning of our friends stay-

we all walked to the beach – and it started to sprinkle

even though the Sun was shining!

The start of a fantastic three days was blessed with a RAINBOW!

Even though there was a light rain –

just enough to get you a little wet

we pushed on – to the beach!

A pathway – the sound of the surf – and toes in the sand!

Papa Jim Cindy

The ocean and sand has a way of making everything okay!

The rain had stopped –

and it was warm – not cold – at least for people from the North

as we all are from NWPA and WNY!

We are seniors – well most of us are

but – we are aging healthy – all of us!

Walking the beach – first morning with friends

before a day of golfing and then dinner

This has been our life throughout the years

The beach is new – but the friends are ageless!

From one rain bow to one walk on the beach

A little rain – a lot of laughter

Walking with friends on the beach!

Papa’s World – Fluffy clouds – Rainbows – storms are coming – watching the sky

I am a sky watcher – the sunrise and clouds –

Planes – blue skies – and dark skies.

I watch as storms roll in – only to disappoint – no rain!

Since coming here to our daughters and son in laws house

it would take me two hands to count the number of times

I looked up and there it was – A RAINBOW!

No rain – but it must be in the distance!

Sometimes I was able to get a picture –

other times not!

Watching the skies – billowing clouds –

You think – is that going to be rain?

And then you see –

Another rainbow – no it does not seem like rain!

But then –

Through the sunlight – comes the rain –

and behind the house was the rainbow.

FLUFFY CLOUDS -RAINBOWS – STORMS ARE COMING –

WATCHING THE SKIES!

Papa’s World – the skies of a storm coming – beautiful!

I walked outside – we are staying with Tammy and Marcus.

They were on vacation – Sherry & I were alone.

Everywhere I looked to the sky –

was just awesome!

OUT FRONT FROM THE PORCH!

Sherry told me that she had a weather alert!

That is when I walked out onto the front porch.

I turned to the left and saw this after looking straight to the West.

Our new car parked alongside the road

as they were sealing the driveway the next day!

Then I walked to the edn of the porch and snapped this picture.

It was different in every direction!

I then went back inside and out the back door –

Again it was different!

There was yellow – orange – purple – blue – white – gray

and some deep pink!

The storm was suppose to start around 9 PM.

Flash flood alerts –

Stay off the roads –

High winds and take shelter!

The calm and beauty before the storm.

Later that night it hit –

Lightening – thunder and lots of rain.

I love a storm – and it will drum me to sleep!

And this one did!

Midnight – Sherry thought to wake me up and move the car.

The next day we were suppose to have the driveway sealed.

So – I had parked by the road and ditch.

She was worried the ditch would fill –

So – after trying to wake me up to no success

Off she went in the rain and moved the car back to the driveway!

She is a angel – me – for some reason I would not wake up!

We had FIVE INCHES OF RAIN IN THREE HOURS!

She had 18 alerts on road closings –

wash outs and rescues being taken – nine people!

I slept right through it!

The calm before the storm got me!

Always loved a good storm –

Next time I vow to be more alert!

Papa’s World – RAINBOW – Over Brambleton

GOOD MORNING

A couple days ago – Sherry was working for Tammy –

And I was watching Bode –

It had been raining and I glanced out the back window

to the East –

and saw a sight I never get used to –

A RAINBOW !

RAIN BOW OVER
BRAMBLETON VA.

Everything was fresh and clean from the Rain –

Even though we have a irrigation system

The lawn and trees and flowers

always react much better to natural rain fall.

The RAINBOW is a extra offshoot of refreshing rain.

RAIN BOW OVER
BRAMBLETON VA.
I called Bode over to look and he was like
That is so cool Papa !
