Papa’s World – Picking up seashells and then lunch at Provision Company.

We decided to go to Holden Beach – walk and find seashells with Diane and Steve.

Sherry has now a collection of seashells that she has made a place in a container in the living room.

It is a stand with an old fashion metal suitcase on it and coral and driftwood under it.

On the wall is a black cursive metal sign that says “HOME”!

Sherry loves the beach – sand – water – surf and sounds.

We can get to all three beaches here in less than thirty minutes!

This one is the farthest away.

But – we chose this one to come to because we wanted to have lunch at the Provision Company!

We were here once before and the unique thing for me is that you are ON YOUR HONOR on drinks!

They do not keep track – any kind of drink!

There is a soda fountain – a bar and a beer cooler.

You just grab what you want – or get a mixed drink – then when you check out –

you pay your lunch bill and TELL them what you had to drink!

There hardly is any wait at all for a table!

The whole place is covered in license plates and dollar bills – with names on them.

You order as you come in and give them your name.

Then grab a drink and wait outside on the deck.

Steve – Sherry, and Diane waiting for our name to be called for a table with the view of ICW!

They already have your order and you grab a drink and when they call your name – the table.

Then you get your food within minutes of sitting down.

If you want another drink – just get up and in our cases – grab it out of the cooler.

When you go to leave – you stop at the cashier – tell them your name –

she asks what you had to drink – you tell her and then you pay for the drinks and meal!

Simple and on you HONOR! I LOVE IT!

Thanks for reading Papa’s World!

Papa’s World – “WHEN YOU WISH UPON A SHELL”

Vereen Gardens just inside the S.C. border

We have been here a half dozen times since we first came down to S.C. – North Myrtle Beach.

We have taken company here also.

It is a park – nature – walk out across the march along the ICW.

Walkways over the marshes.

We did not know what it was so one day we just turned into the entrance and drove a mile or so toward the ICW – and came to a parking lot-bathroom area – park – with swings and gazebos.

A view over the marsh to the ICW

The ICW is full of boat traffic and the two big Casino boats in Little River come right past here.

Ella Sarah Sherry walking across the marsh on the boardwalk.

You can hike miles in here – a map shows all the trails.

The trail map – other trails cross back and forth – but this is the main trail
The hiking trail through the woods

While there – you come to a MAKE A WISH section!

Thousands of seashells hang from trees and bushes
You find a seashell – bring a marker and string – make a wish – write down your name
And then you find a spot and tie your shell to a branch – take a picture so you remember!

It is a little magical place – a place to sit and just gaze out over the ICW – maybe see an eagle.

Our grandchildren have done this.

We go back – sometimes we find the shells – storms seem to take them out.

But – when we do find them – memories of times spent with family and friends return.

Papa’s World – Friends – make awish and hang from a tree – Vareen gardens – walking – ICW!

GOOD-DAY EVERYONE!

As per our routine with new guests – we took them for a walk along the ICW and the marsh –

at Vareen Memorial Garden just outside Little River S.C.

Josh and Chann’e walking across the shells along the ICW

We were going to do one last beach day at Sunset Beach – but first – we wanted them to see this.

This is whefre you can watch the big gambling boat depart from Little River and go past here

and make it ways out to the Ocean beyond the international border line.

There – I think they drop anchor and everyone gambles!

And the little one got a chance to explore – there were tiny little black crabs everywhere!

She was a trooper in walking back there to pose for a picture!

Her mom and dad were right there.

They left two dogs home in care by sister – hope everything was okay! LOL

This also is the place you come to – find a shell with a hole in it – take a sharpie –

and write something on it – name – date – anything – and then a string you brought along –

you hang it from one of the numerous trees “AND MAKE A WISH”!

Steve and Elaine – our dear friends from back in WNY!

There are thousands of shells hanging everywhere.

Thirty years ago or maybe longer – we played volleyball in a 16 team league –

In Portville N.Y. and also weekend tournaments.

We were all on the same co-ed team –

and it was a tough league – if you were not watching – you could get a broken nose!

Josh was just a baby when we played – sitting in his stroller – watching us!

We brought them – Debby – Sarah and Ella to Vareen’s Memorial Garden

Just as we did with their cousins – and here is a special place

Sarah’s hanging wishes for all her school friends!
The first make a wish tree – now there are many more!

Many people pass through here each day –

I watched two older women stop and do the same thing –

find a shell – write on it and then hang it from a tree!

Busy writing their names and making their wishes!
Debby’s shell – no matter how old you are – make a wish to come true!
Taylor’s shell in front of Ella’s shell – cousins!

It was a warm day – low tide so lots of shells to look at!

We arrived – The Make A Wish Tree area –

along the ICW in Little River S.C.

at the Vereen Memorial Garden!

The girls were excited – because we told them – their cousins had been there

a couple weeks prior!

We showed them the sea shells they had made and signed!

So they went about finding shells!

So may shells to look at!

They took their time – looking with the help of their parents and Sherry!

Casey Kristie Olivia

Now it was time!

Spread them out on the bench – string them – and write your wish!

Found the spot on the tree – where their cousins left their names and added theirs!

We had visitors for the weekend – from N.C. around three hours away.

Daughter and family of Sherry’s sister.

Sisters Olivia and Maya

The little ones were so excited – to finally be able to go somewhere

all due to the pandemic.

We tested – they rested and everything was good.

We only had one full day to explore – so we took them to Vareen Memorial Garden.

To hike and gather shells.

We also hit the beach for a short walk but it was windy and cold.

Searching for shells along the ICW – they even felt the water! LOL

Papa’s World – find a seashell – write a name and date – and then make a wish!

There is a place – next to the ICW – in Vereen Memorial Park – where you find a shell – date it and your name – hang it from a tree – and then make a wish – hundreds of the hang and this one is from our Taylor!
At ten years old – she already is five foot tall – she will someday be taller I think than her MorMor( Sherry) who is 5′ 9″ must be the Swede coming through!
I am little – some day I will be bigger – so she says – but every day she either calls or texts her MorMor ( Sherry ) and that sweet little soft voice – “I love you MorMor ” here she hangs her wish!
Cassidy showing her shell for a wish! I think she looks just like Taylor in this picture!
Bode – hanging his seashell wish – the only boy out of six grand children!
I have said – Cassidy and Bode should of been the twins – they are two peas in a pod!
Bode Taylor Cassidy

They came to spend a long weekend with us –

seeing where we live and where we are building our new home!

They were so excited – and hiking was on our things to do!

We had told them there was a place to make a wish and hang the shells from a tree!

But first you must search for the right shell

then date it and put your name on it!

MorMor – leading Taylor – Cassidy and Bode on a search for their own perfect sea shell!

Papa’s World – hiking with the grand kids – Veeren Memorial Park – S.C.

Cassidy Bode Papa Tammy

We had driven past this park dozens of times as we went to golf and also after we bought our lot!

Always saying – we need to stop and check it out –

might be a good place to bring the grand kids as they all

like to hike and explore!

Papa Cassidy Taylor and Bode

So – we did and then when they came down – we went for a hike –

out through the marsh – into the trees – a sand trail – pathway –

I had a map as it splits off several times!

I guess in the warmer months you will see gators in the marsh!

The little ones are always curious – exploring – seeing and asking questions!

But – they also stay close – ever watchful –

and tend to hang with MorMor!

Sherry – ( MorMor) Swede for Mother’s Mother – loves to lead and show them – explain what everything is!
They also listen to her!
