Papa’s World – Family Krohn on the beach!

Taylor Marcus Tammy Papa

Our family came to spend their spring break with us before Easter.

Cassidy and Bode – the one boy on the left.

We spent a lot of time between beaches – and it was a warm week for water and sand.

Shelling – walking – boogie boards – blowing sand – no rain – warm sun and family time.

Taylor – she is growing up so fast – she will be the tall one in the family.

Taylor excels in horseback riding and grooming – riding lessons once a week.

She is very tall for her age and will be taller than her MORMOR Sherry –

who is almost 5’10”.

Ella has already matched Sherry and Sarah will soon.

Bode and Cassidy are on their Boogie boards.

These two are so much alike that they should have been the twins.

Bode will end up also being very tall.

Cassidy is of normal height for her age and is a beauty.

Her warmth and caring – her love of her MORMOR whom she calls all the time.

Her use of YOUTUBE for art projects and drawings.

She is playing soccer as is Bode.
She is quick – fast and agile.

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – saying not goodbye – but until we meet again!

It is always sad when the family leaves!

This time it is Debby and Ella – the spring break is almost over –

and Debby has to drop her off on her way home at Randolph College in Lynchburg Va.

But we had a fantastic six whole days with them!

At the beginning of the day they had to leave.

The weather was cool here the entire time as it was all up and down the East coast.

And the day they left it got almost to 80 degrees!

But – we had days and days of walking the beaches and Ella even went in one day!

Debby Ella Sherry – discussing the trip back to college and the future trip back in June.
All packed up and ready to load the car!

Tears of joy in that we were able to spend the time together –

the laughs and new places to explore.

Not saying goodbye – but until we meet again.

Next time their whole family will be here – and it will be warmer.

The surf and sand beckon – that is our WHY in moving down here.

Papa’s World – the second granddaughter comes for spring break with her mother.

Our daughter Debby and her daughter Ella

They drove down from Lake Holiday – Cross Junction – Winchester Va.

Ella had come home from Randolph College in Lynchburg Va.

at the start of her spring break.

Whereas a Freshman – she started on the college soccer team at midfield.

Three generations – Granddaughter Ella Mother Debby Grandmother Sherry

We were excited as it would be the first time for them in the new house.

Debby’s youngest – Sarah – fifteen years old –

stayed home with her father – Mike – as she was not yet on spring break.

They as a family are planning on coming down in June after all are out of school.

While the weather was not real warm – we managed beach time – numerous times.
We showed them Boardwalk on the Beach
And spent an evening at a show at The Carolina Opry!

While visits seem to go by so fast – just not enough time to show them everything.

The upside is they loved where we live and will return.

Papa’s World – Saint Patrick days parade – NMB!

Maddy wanted to walk the beach and see the ocean one last time before she went back to college.

The parade had been canceled the previous week because of the strong wind and rain.

So – this time our granddaughter Maddy was here but she had to leave in the afternoon –

So we drove to North Myrtle Beach so she could enjoy a few hours of just plain fun –

and take her last walk and see the ocean before she left.

Here Shery and Maddy walk out to the ocean at the main street entrance to NMB.

Walking the main street in North Myrtle Beach before the parade.

Hundreds of vendors were set up – food – drink – items for sale.

We were there early – around 8:30 am.

Coffee for our early morning walks around town viewing the vendors before the thousands of people show up.

Sherry and Maddy sitting on a towel on the curb of Ocean Blvd.

We did not carry chairs – and we had front row seats sitting on a towel on the curb.

The parade lasted one hour – and was quite colorful in green and white and orange!

Papa and Maddy – time for some green beer!
Thanks for reading PAPA’S WORLD

It was a great four-plus hour spending time with our granddaughter before driving back to the house.

Sad to pack her up to leave in the early afternoon – but we had her entire spring break with us.

Papa’s World – Spring break with Maddy!

As the sunset in Sunset Beach – Sherry and Maddy take it all in on a cool evening.

She drove herself five hours from Lynchburg Va. – her University – to spend her break with us!

So we took her to the beach in the early evening after she arrived.

She had a test in the morning of the day she started out – but she and Sherry wanted to see the beach.

It was cool out – a cold front had come in from Florida all the way North to N.E.

And the wind made for a chilly walk in the blowing sand.

Here you can see a deserted beach and how the sand blows across it – stinging your eyes.

Grandma and granddaughter – the same – they love the surf and the sand.

It was worth the time to take her to both beaches – to relax after her five-hour drive –

the crazy world of college and tests – maintaining an almost 4.0!

And grandma had her eldest granddaughter once again in her home!

The long walk back from the beach – grandmother and granddaughter

Thanks for reading PAPA’S WORLD, a place to just rest your thoughts and enjoy the day.

She is going for a degree in Engineering Science – carrying a 3.80 GPA.

And of course, we are excited – she will be here a little over one week.

Sherry and Maddy – the smiles say it all.
Maddy and Papa

I remember picking her up after my work at the babysitter –

and we would sing Old McDonald had a farm.

Or the time when she just started to walk –

I had placed a blanket in the front yard –

and she would not go off the blanket because the grass was strange on her tiny feet.

This has been a perfect week with her – love it!

Thanks for reading Papa’s World – will continue her Spring-break with us in the next blog.

PAPA’S WORLD – Spring Break – Maddy.

Papa’s World – more memories of the past 16 months – living life doing it my way!

Papa Jimmy Buck

In this picture – my friends of the last 36 years for Buck and 40 plus hears for Jimmy!

Jimmy and I worked together and played softball together in the mid to late ’70’s!

In the back ground across the pond on this hole in Magnolia Greens –

sits Buck and Cindy’s new home they built a couple years ago!

I really like this area and would of moved here if we could of found something

like this and in our price range.

Friends and golfing buddies – MEMORIES!

Buck Cindy Dottie

Dottie – Jimmy’s wife and Cindy – Bucks wife – all these years still getting together!

We all moved away from our home town areas.

Yet – at least twice a year we manage to get together –

here we are at Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach!

Speak no evil – see on evil and hear no evil!

In the last 16 months – sometimes we struggled to balance social distancing –

and that was very true with family.

Sitting in our garage while the three little ones sat on a tarp in the lawn at the end of the driveway.

Or visiting them standing outside and little Bode hiding behind his parents peaking out at us!

That broke my heart.

But – we have come a long ways on this – we did stay with family after we sold our house

at the end of June last year!

Family is important and we have been tested twice and so have they!

My little buddy – Bode – who when we stay with them – will come down the stairs to the bottom area where we stay –

PAPA – can I sit on your lap!

This is at 5:45 am. – while I am writing my blog!

He knows I wake up early and down he comes- when we are not here – he sleeps in!

Last week he asked me on a kids message –

he had called me – “PAPA – WHEN WILL WE SEE YOU AGAIN”?

I tear up when he talks to me like that!

When the family Krohn – the three little ones and Marcus and Tammy – came to visit on their Spring Break.

Here we are having lunch after they drove 6 hours – at Crooked Hammock at Barefoot Landing!

They spent all weekend and until Friday of the following week with us!

This made us very happy as they got to see where we are and where we are building our house.

They now know it is but a six hour drive for them to visit!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World-

My blog on memories will continue with my next blog.

PAPA’S WORLD WHERE FRIENDS MEET FAMILY FAMILY MEETS FRIENDS livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – Spring has Sprung – the Beach got busy – and they are in the water!

Here is our before 9:am. early morning walk – a little more crowed but nothing not expected! Looking South to North Myrtle Beach from where we enter the access to the beach.
From the beach access looking toward Cherry Grove – a few more people – but not a lot!

But – this is the beginning of the week for Spring Breakers –

and we noticed traffic getting heavey.

We have found our way around and avoid the high traffic on rte. 17!

We take the side streets as far as we can – and one side street takes up to where we can shop!

Now – in the afternoon we decided to do a couple hours of a beach day – taking and carrying our chairs to the beach. Here is the same view looking toward North Myrtle Beach – a lot more people and a lot of people in the water. But we still had our own space – no one within thirty feet of us!
Here is the same view in the afternoon looking toward Cherry Grove! And – it will get more crowed as Spring turns into Summer with vacations! We are in the open space and avoid large gatherings which happen mostly toward North Myrtle Beach town center. A lot of young H.S. and college students gather on the beach there in a large group. You just avoid them as they will do what they do regardless!

Being here is still our dream – we will come back often as we like it here –

but also where we are moving too – no traffic – country quiet – we can walk –

and still be in access to the other two beaches!

The beach here is very wide – I have been told it is the widest on the Grand Strand!
