Papa’s World – One final beach walk with friends!

Dottie Sherry Jim

They were leaving mid morning for their trip back to Va. Beach

where they have lived for a number of years.

Our other friends – who live 50 miles away

had gone home the night before

as appointments awaited them in the morning.

We have been getting together for the past 25 years

when we all moved away

having been friends prior to that for at least 10 years.

The beach – as it always has – called us to walk one final time!

Jimmy

For years and years we took beach vacations together

raising our families

Jim and I played softball together back in the late 70’s!

Now the little ones are all grown up

and have little ones and big ones of their own

Grand children – the years have passed

but the love of the sand and surf remains!

Beach life – Boggie Boards – Wave riding with tubes – Sipping a favorite brew

all things we loved to do – but I no longer ride the waves –

I still sip a brew – and I still walk the surf!

One last walk on the beach – just as we have done countless times before.

Life has been good to all of us

we still get along and get together

friendships last and last!

Papa’s World – going on another road trip – friends

One of our adventures- Sherry Fitzsimmons – Cindy North McBride – William McBride and Tom Fitzsimmons on the inter coastal water way off North Carolina.


For the last 12 years – we have taken trips together – every other year in most cases.

We have been to Spain – Gibraltar – Morocco – we have toured N.H. – Mass. and Maine. We have been to the Niagara Falls , Ontario Canada wine region – tasting wine and brews !

We have revisited our roots back in NWPA and SWNY – playing a week of golf on the courses we played years and years ago. You see – we were neighbors and friends 37 years ago ! Then they moved South to N.C. and later we transferred South to NVA – all the while staying in close contact – visiting on vacations.

On Turtle Bay Oahu

We have visited Oahu together- covering the whole island in 10 days.

Playing golf in the mountains close to where they filmed Jurassic Park. We have stayed at their house in N.C. and played the courses around them.

coastal water way.

We are planing and talking future trips – ( IRELAND ) back to our ancestors. Maybe a trip to Nashville – and my thoughts on Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg Tenn. with a log cabin in the mountains !

Buck and Cindy in Oahu .

Now – we have committed to a trip out West – the far West as in Northern California – a drive and stay trip for 7 or 8 days ! Making our list pf places to see and when we get together – piecing all the information down – getting excited !

We have now been retired for 7 years ( Sherry ) 6 years me. Sherry had a sales job ( outside ) – all of NVA – for the company she worked for for 32 years. The traffic and day to day stress was more than enough – so she started a part time job through The Juice Plus Company. When it grew – she decided at which point it was large enough to retire. At age 63 – she did it !

Today – we are able to both be retired – and will be celebrating – in the next two months – our birthdays – the big 70 !!!!

Back in NWPA- Sherry’s home – the Knizua via duct – bridge.


Red woods – Napa valley – Reno – Lake Tahoe – Sequoia’s – San Francisco – Alcatraz – Yosemite – Sonoma – Berkley – Glamping –

Just some of the things on our list – we shall see and compare. Close friends through all these years – still trying to get our other close friends to take a trip with us.

At Vanish Brewery near our home in NVA – October fest !

Where ever we go – when ever we go – there are laughs – there are adventures and sometimes golf ( we give no strokes as they are too good )

Sherry and Cindy – always something with their phones!

These two will always laugh and make us laugh – that is why we get along so well. Later this Summer – another road trip – to Northern California. A trip worth waiting for – another adventure in the making.

Stay tuned – waiting – excited – and NO STROKES – they should give us strokes! LOL
