Papa’s World – after moving into the new home – our first official walk on the beach!

Ocean Isle Beach – N.C. the first time to walk here after moving in!

The beach is but 4.5 miles away – shorter if you are a crow!

We live in Cameron Woods – part of Ocean Ridge but across the main highway from it.

We are on the mainland – three miles to the causeway over the ICW!

We actually have a choice of two beaches – for Sunset beach is two miles futher in the opposite direction South!

And if we want to travel – we are 16 miles back to North Myrtle Neach where we have lived the past nine months!

The beach here is different – the sand a darker shade – not as flat and the waves seem to be rougher !

The beach also is not as wide as NMB or as many people!

People surf and ride the waves more here.

The water is very warm just like NMB!

And we are finding our way around!

There are music concerts throughout the Summer and into October on Friday nights!

Getting there is a major problem as we tried to attend the free concert and got stuck in a three mile

traffic jam trying to get across the causeway!

So – we truned around and did not go!

We are learning – do not go at the last moment – go early – walk the beach – have dinner and then get the chairs out and pick a space to chill and wait for the music to start!

Both beaches have these concerts on different nights as does NMB!

Right across the street form our home – Ocean Ridge – such beautiful skies here.

Our first beach walk – thank you for reading Papa’s World

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – family – most are gone – but memories linger on – missing them.

My step father John – my mother Mary and my brother in law Bill.

John was a decorated WWII hero – with the purple heart and numerous other medals.

He captured a castle and a Nazi officer out of uniform – there is a story in a military journal

that is in the WWII museum in Eldred Pa.that chronicles that event.

He took from that officer a automatic machine gun pistol – vintage WWI – that also resides in the museum

and is worth upwards in the thousands of dollars. They keep it locked away as it is so valuable.

He was wounded several times and went back into action.

Bill was a vet of the forgotten war – Korea – he seldom talked about it but while I was growing up –

he gave to me his sleeping bag that he used in the cold winters there.

I admire his stamina as all it was is a wool blanket inside a canvas liner!

I would get very cold while sleeping outside on the ground in it!

He was more to me than a brother in law – he was my friend and like a brother to me.

One time I was out with him on patrol in the cop car – he was the town cop –

We drove down across the tracks and out past the old pipe building –

he saw a woodchuck and said to me –

“Do I get him”?
“Sure I said”!

He pulled out his gun and from the front seat shot that old woodchuck –

I almost went deaf from that gun going off!

I said ” JESUS CHRIST BILL” and then we both just burst out laughing!

Lesson – never fire a gun from inside a car – you can barely hear for like 10 minutes!

John and Mary ( my mother) holding pies that she made from scratch!

Mom was known all over the town and county and into NYS for her baking.

She would bake rolls – bread – pies and cakes. Sweet rolls and sticky buns.

There was not anything she could not knead and bake and all from memory!

She did not need a receipt – she just did it after almost 85 years of her life baking!

She baked as a child learning from her mother who passed at 85 years old.

Mom was next to the youngest of 11 kids and was almost 98 years old when she passed.

She supplied pies and cakes and rolls for a diner in town.

She was so kind and loving – warm and gentle – but she also was a strong women – way before her time – she believed in equal rights and taught me that – she would come up with these sayings that made me laugh – ” You are as useless as a two petered billy goat”

Or she would say ” You are as useless as teats on a boar hog”! She had me in stitches –

she also played the accordion my father the spoons and sang and my uncle jack the wash board.

They would do this at family picnics and if the beer was free – at social events.

When she was young – she traveled with my grandma in the logging camps of Pa.

Making breakfast – lunch and dinner as a way to make money in the depression.

My father passed away in 1969 after a long battle with cancer – leaving mom a widow and my younger brother just entering H.S. After about ten years she met John – and they remarried – both of them.

They were together until he passed away at age 81.

She called him “JOHNNY BOY” and he was so good to her – just what she needed after ten years losing my dad.

He could fix anything and construction was his forte.

His cars and trucks immaculate even though they were ten years old – showroom condition.

He fixed up and remodled the house which she had kept going all those years .

That same house today is still in the family after almost 78 years –

my great niece lives there today.

Mary ( Mom) and John ( her Johnny boy)

Next blog – MY BROTHER MIKE! GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN!

Papa’s World – My first thought when we walked main street – all the golf carts we were back in The Villages!

They were here early – starting just back from the entrance to Fat Harold’s Beach Club where we go and watch them do the Shag dance!

There are a lot of golf carts in North Myrtle Beach – and they actually block off this portion of Main Street –

and make it into one big tail gate lot for golf cars – and there is no one way they park.

The are front to back – sides – going in different directions and by the start of the music – jammed in there!

Sherry with her chair on her back as we walk down the side walk toward the beach – this was early – about one hour before they were scheduled to begin the music!
Some carts parked facing away from the beach – when we walked by here later – they were almost all touching each other – just enough room to walk about – chat up your neighbor and sip a drink – somehow they had set up speakers in the middle divide and the band could be heard through those speakers – actually sounded better than where we sat.
Looking back up main street across Ocean Blvd. Now these carts are all facing front but behind them – they are in different directions – I think at the end the police help them get out – we did not hang around as lightening was coming from upo the street behind these carts! The rain did hold off – later in the night.
Part of the crowd in chairs they set up – we were to the left and not as crowded and easy to get in and out.
The stage at the arch on main street entrance to the beach.

It is here that the OD PAVILION – before it was destroyed in the ’50’s from a hurricane –

The SHAG DANCE started!

HOTO’s also is here as well as the OD TIKI HUT and radio station 94.9 the SURF!

HOTO’s behind the red sign and THE SURF RADIO STATION 94.9 – and the OD TIKI BAR.

The music was good – although in different areas as we walked about – it was better – must be where we sat!

The crowd was big and this the second concert of the season which goes every Thursday night –

till the end of October!

I am happy for the merchants as it has been a long 15 months of the pandemic.

I think the vaccinations plus the number of people who already have had covid19

has brought us closer to herd immunity.

The clouds were moving in – we both had rain alerts on our phones and behind us toward rte. 17 – thunder and lightening! TIME TO GO HOME!

At Barefoot Landing – North Myrtle Beach – walking to Land Sharks – Dottie – Cindy – Sherry – Jim and Buck.

We had gone to Crooked Hammock Brewery to taste beer –

and then decided to head over to the newly opened Land Shark to grab a late lunch –

Sherry and I come here all the time to walk – doing a couple loops will get us 2 1/2 miles!

We really like this better than Broadway on the Beach.

There are more places to visit here and sit!

This all sits on top of water on the lake!

Jimmy explaining to the sales lady why he won’t give his name and phone number to her! LOL

We planed to eat and then go to Fat Harold’s to watch Shag dancing later!

Dottie Cindy Sherry – planning for the golf game the next day if it does not rain!
We arrived at Land Shark!

This had just opened recently and was our first time here.

It was not as busy as the other place – but had many wide open spaces!

Seated – we had this area all to ourselves!

The walls – everywhere you look through out the rooms and bar

are covered with plaques and awards through the years of SHAGGER’S!

Next blog – rain – golf inside – beaching it – walking in the rain!

Papa’s World – FRIENDS – BAREFOOT LANDING – BEACH TIME – and of course RAIN!

Before our friends arrived – we took our walk to the beach!

They would all be here by noon!

So – we walked – and then we went back and waited for them to arrive!

Back to front – Jim – Dottie – Sherry – Buck – Cindy and Papa.

Our first stop on Saturday afternoon would be Barefoot landing – and Crooked Hammock Brewery –

where the gals would do a flight of four beer tastings.

The guys already knew what beer they wanted!

Sherry has been trying beer and staying away from her Vodka and Tonic!

So she is slowly acquiring the taste as the rest of us drink beer.

Here we are along the ICW – looking at the boats!

NOTE: we normally do not drink – only when we get together with family of friends –

we go weeks on end without – mostly drinking healthy shakes or water

coffee ( me) tea ( Sherry) – I am for the most part a light beer drinker –

I do not like wine much or hard drinks –

Sherry = prefers when she has a drink – a wine of her choice or Vodka and tonic and not many of them.

Making our way past Greg Normans and onto the brewery along the ICW!
In the Brewery of Crooked Hammock.

After the stop at the Brewery – we continued on toward a new place that just opened up –

Called LANDSHARK – where we would have lunch!

Cindy – Dottie – Sherry – have all been friends for over 39 years!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World –

Later that day – FAT HAROLD’S – and the Rain came in the next day!

Sunrise – walking the beach – well – a few hours after the sunrise! LOL

Families are important to us – today – our youngest daughter and her family!

Cassidy Bode Taylor Marcus Tammy

The three little ones as I call them!

They get so excited when they see us – Bode being the only boy with five granddaughters!

BODE TAYLOR CASSIDY – they call us PAPA and MORMOR ( mothers – mother in Swedish)

We go home and we stay with them or with Debby and Mike.

Deb and Mike live just outside Winchester Va. and Tammy and Marcus just outside Leesburg Va.

They now have another addition to the family – MARLEY – she is a Golden-Doodle!

MARLEY and TAYLOR!

She is such a chilled back puppy – but still a puppy with sharp teeth – she behaves with Taylor –

but with Bode and Cassidy she terrorizes them with those tiny teeth!

Taylor and Cassidy – born fraternal twins – Taylor has always been the bigger of the two – I think when she is all done – she will be close to six feet tall!

Cassidy always says – someday I will be bigger! But – she is of average height – more like her mother –

Taylor takes after her MorMor who is 5′ 9″ tall!

Taylor – Sherry and Bode – on the way to the beach.

They love their Mor Mor – always calling her as does Cassidy.

Papa’s World – on the Autumn of life – SUNRISES – living life – part one!

We are in the Autumn of life – but a life we choose – living life to the plus – one day at a time!

We have had many adventures throughout the 40 years plus we have been together.

Soon – on 6-25-21 it will be year number 39 of marriage – plus 1 1/2 years before that!

We have lived in five different houses that we owned –

Plus a condo we have leased for nine months –

and soon to be house number six in Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

We have lived in Pa. NYS. Va. S.C. and in the new home in N.C.

All in all – every day is a new way to celebrate life – positive thoughts – challenges and moving on together!
Soon it will be here – the new home we are having built – we started out just wanting to see where we would end up – and soon it was seen that buying would not work – too much to change so we decided to build and let our lives adapt to the new future.
First – in our lives are friends – family and new people we have met and a new home church.

Each morning while sipping coffee – I marvel just how far in these 39 years we have come.

The road was not easy those early years – we had nothing but each other and kids – from two separate marriages.

Combining to sets of children – with hardly any money.

But – we made it work and pushed on.

Today we are here in our happy place – together on a new adventure – holding onto our dreams.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – ON THE AUTUMN OF OUR LIVES – SUNRISES PART ONE!

Papa’s World – on the Autumn of Life – sunrises – family – Part Two !

It never gets old – every morning is different – as are the nights – I will miss this view in a few short days!

Our Condo in Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach – found simply by accident – and now almost nine months later –

We will move out and into our new home – if the closing is on time!

But – here is what we look at each morning – the lake – the wild fowl – the houses – the fountains – trees –

I love the rees!

And family – little ones climbing trees!

All or most of the family has come down – Mike and Maddy have not made it here.

The little ones love to explore – play on the playground at Barefoot Landing.

Family is really important to us – and keeping the time to get here manageable!

In our new home it will be six hours for one family and almost seven hours for the other.

They can drive in one day and be here early enough to enjoy!

Family time – beach – exploring – warm weather – new home – new neighborhood.

The Myers family – our oldest daughter and the oldest granddaughters – Debby – Ella – Mike – Papa – Sherry – Sarah and Maddy – our first granddaughter – Ella was second and then Sarah.
Ella a senior – next fall – enroll at Randolph College – will play soccer – her H.S,. is undefeated and about to enter states.
Sarah – in the middle of Taylor and Cassidy – Sarah is the youngest in her family –

Sarah wants to act – design – fashion – dance – no sports for her – although I secretly believe she would be awesome – still growing – Ella at 5′ 81/2 ” – I think she will be taller – and Taylor will be tallest of all – only 10 years old!

Maddy – oldest grand child with the youngest grand child – Bode – only boy – Maddy is going into her third year of college at the University of Lynchburg where she also plays soccer – carrying a 3.85 GPA!
Mike – PHYS ED. teacher – Ella – Debby – QNMD for The Juice Plus Company.

Family means a great deal to us – even though we are down here – they have visited and we have gone home several times – staying in each family homes with them.

Papa’s World – walking a nature trail with Debby in Winchester Va.

A picture along the trail in a display for a resident hiker of the Appalachian Trail she took beginning to end.

This is all part of the Shenandoah Museum complex in Winchester Va. A hiking trail – through the woods.

Sherry took all these pictures as we walked about three miles!

The pathway is very wide – I would guess eight feet and all made up with crushed limestone! There are benches to sit on the entire walkway – and areas to sit quietly – a really nice walk and easy on the feet!

We have walked this every time we come to visit and now in late spring – the flowers and trees are full!

We made the trip back to NVA to see Ella play soccer for her senior recognition night and picked up the three little ones so they could cheer her on! Taylor – Cassidy and Bode.

Ella will continue on in college playing soccer for Randolph College in Lynchburg Va.

She lost two years with injuries to her feet breaking a bone in each one.

But – she was determined and it paid off.

Her team is now 8 – 0 – 2 and headed to states.

They have five players continuing onto the college level!

Ella number nine – entering the field to play final game of regular season at James Wood H.S. Winchester Va.
Olivia holding the picture of Ella as a little one – have gown up together as neighbors and best friends.
Proud parents – Mike and Debby
Being escorted by her parents and honored on the field.
All family – friends and neighbors who came out to support Ella and her being honored pregame.
The only boy in the grandchildren with Ella’s Sister Maddy – they will compete against each other in college soccer!

They ended up in a double overtime tie for the game – 0 to 0!

They moved onto the districts –

But we were able to come home and watch four games.

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 – little Krohn puppy – Marley( she) and I – dog sitting!

She is a GOLDENDOODLE – all legs and a cute face that you become attached to!

She is ten weeks old and named Marley – the newest addition to Tammy and Marcus’s family!

They have wanted a dog for years – at least the kids have.

But – I feel deep down – this is Tammy’s Dog! LOL

Marley – she just flops down where ever she is and looks at you with those puppy eyes!

Everyone was gone – kids in school – Tammy and Marcus at work – Sherry meeting friends for lunch and me with Marley – the whole time I had her outside in the fenced in back yard – she would go and hide in the bushes!

Peaking out at me – and when I went over – she thought it a game and would move to another bush!

She really is a sweet puppy – but still a puppy – she has sharp little teeth – and barks really loud!

It was warm outside and she sought out the shade – she would look at me and when I whistled – would come running up to me – licking my legs and hands and wagging her whole body!

But – she is a puppy and like a little child – you have to watch everything she does – chewing – peeing –

It is more challenging than baby sitting! LOL

Marley – under the bush – the other side is a drain spout and wet – she would go there and roll in the mud and dig!
Marley – waiting for me to let her back into the house – she seemed to have had enough for a while!

She wants to go back inside and will lay at the top of the steps and sort of cry!

Then when you go up to her – she gets all excited and licks you as you open the door and inside she goes!

The dormer siding is done – landscaping in and irrigation done – the grass is in even though I have no pictures!
Before the landscaping and irrigation – the grading – has to be smoothed out!
The irrigation in and being tested – the landscaping in – grass has now been added – as has the garage door – and gutters are on – the lanai has been screened in and painting on inside started!
The trim is done – repairs made to drywall and sanded down – painting has begun! This is the sun room.
The lanai which has since been screened in – Sherry standing where door will be to the open patio and fire pit.

We get daily updates from a neighbor – the Quartz has been delivered – I know there was a wait for the tile!

French doors to the office – this is one of the main reasons we selected this model – along with a front porch! The layout provided us a place for desks for Sherry’s Internet business and a place for me to write!
Nice size trees and one more on the other side of the driveway! I like the bushes – and we will develop the back the way we want to plant – we envision large planters of flowers also.
Sherry standing in the covered front porch which I wanted as I sit on the porch all the time- Love when it is a light rain!
Walking is our way to stay healthy – praying for World peace – loving our family – friends – neighbors!
Hall closet – pantry and kitchen with island – quartz counter tops and 12 inch subway tile for back splash!
Breakfast nook with windows out to the enclosed screened in lanai!

Papa’s World – Golfing at Crow Creek and finally we beat them!

We have driven by this golf course it seems like a hundred times!

This course sits on the right on Route 17 as you drive South to North Myrtle Beach in N.C.

It always looked so well groomed and made you just want to stop and take a picture!

Well – finally – we played it – with Buck and Cindy – our long time friends.

We try to play once a week with them – either toward there home which will be about 40 miles from our new home-

Or they drive down and stay the night as they did here and we golf the next day.

Cindy and Sherry – getting ready to be called up to the first tee!

It is always a scramble – we all hit – and then the gals go to their best ball and the guys do the same.

Then you do it all over again – and they are never in trouble – always down the middle –

and each one hits a good ball off the tee.

Playing the senior tees for us – they have a advantage on their tee box and our drives are about the same.

Plus – they are always in the middle of the fairway and I never know where I will be! LOL

This course is one that when you play it – you want to come back!

I would rate this one right up with the best ones we have played and it was a nice course!

There were so many scenes I wanted to take pictures of – but we had a group behind us that was pushing and a group ahead that was always waiting for the group ahead of them.

It was not to my advantage to take pictures as we waited as the group behind could not see what we were seeing with waiting on the other groups.

So – I just relaxed and waited – along with the gals and when we could hit – they hit first and I hit last.

All in all – it turned into a relaxing golf day as no one could go anywhere and we just played the course.

But – I want to return – and by the way – we finally overcame our losing streak – we beat them!

By a total of three strokes over 18 holes!

They are so hard to beat – and if we could putt – well – that would be a big difference!

Papa’s World – the next day after the storm – we relaxed on the beach – sun and warm sand.

The next morning we walked the beach after the storm and then decided to go back to the condo and pack up the chairs – some drinks and food – music and relax on the beach – RETIREMENT!!!!!!
The beach was not crowded at all being early in the week.

We choose our spot and set up the chairs – took a little walk to test out the water –

But – on either side of us – people had music – loud enough that it interfered with what I had –

So – I just put mine away and listened to theirs – two different types! LOL

Watching them para-glide right off shore – four boats out there – two up by us and two farther south.

We could watch then load and unload the people – hardly stopping – and the crowd on the beach was picking up!

After a night before with thunder and lightening storms with high winds –

this day was calm – sunny – blue skies with white clouds!

Cleared my mind and was a relaxing mid afternoon!

Papa’s World – we golfed a course that runs into N.C. for some holes and then into S.C.!

Sherry and Cindy – waiting to tee off on number one of Farmstead – located on the border of N.C, and S.C.

Beautiful course that we wanted to play – I did not know it was divided onto two states

until after a couple holes there was a WELCOME TO N.C. sign on the cart path!

The hole leading into N.C. from S.C. – this was a old farm and the developed this course –

and a siter course called the Meadowlands!

I do not know the history here on this old farm

but it is unique in that you play two states!

Cindy teeing off for a par three – they – Sherry and her – both made it across and close to the green!
Buck and Cindy after nine holes!

Again – they beat us pretty good – but we had a ton of fun!

Great time – coffee break!

Nature – ponds – trees – shrubs – open fairways and lots of birds!

On our way back into S.C from N.C. !

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – Finally the two Swans returned – by themselves – no babies!

They have been missing for about five weeks – I would catch a glimpse of them to the left of the lanai

Around the bend and through the shrubs and trees – once in a while

Sometimes I would mistake them for the lone swan –

But then I would see it futher down the lake.

Thought maybe they had a nest and were nesting little ones back in the marsh.

The two mated swans are in the top left of the picture while the lone swan is in the middle right of the picture – the first time I had seen all three in over a month!

But – there were no babies and the geese have tons of babies –

So – I do not know why they disappeared and seemed to glimpse them every once in a while through the trees.

That part of the lake is undeveloped and is marsh – swamp – trees and water – not the type of place you want to wade

through or even boat in there – at least I wouldn’t!

I was disappointed in no baby swans but happy in that the were back!

They still would have nothing to do with the lone swan.

This is as close as they would let it come!

Then – last week – a man showed up in a small skiff – he comes once in a while to fix the fountains –

the one we see that is close to us in the middle of the lake – gets clogged up and quits –

I have watched him a half dozen times come in and go to it and unclog it!

This time as he was coming down the lake – I watched the two swans take flight –

beating their wings against the water and become airborne –

they circled around and headed over the houses to the left –

There is another lake over there – I think they went there as they were frightened by the man and boat.

After that we went for a walk on the beach – and have not seen the two swans since!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – the one swan remains – mingling in with the ducks – mallards and geese.

I have seen turtles by the hundreds – a otter – some very large fish – a eagle several times -osprey – cranes – herons – egrets – storks –

And the three swans when all here.

A place that when you wake up with the sliding glass doors open – you hear the songs of the birds.

Papa’s World – A mail box on the beach entrance and a journal – FELLOW TRAVELER

It started out with a warm morning – but a breeze early and a beautiful dawning of another day.

We decided to walk early – before it gets too hot!

So – we started out and went to the 10th. avenue beach entrance –

the one where they held EASTER SUNRISE SERVICE on the beach which we attended and I wrote a blog about!

Upon walking the walkway to the deck and stairs – we found a new addition!

It was a MAIL BOX with “FELLOW TRAVELER” painted on top!

Inside was a note book – journal – and already half full with notes from FELLOW TRAVELERS!

There also is one at the end of Sunset beach that was in the news –

I had read about it and how it had been there for 40 years!

And the journals are in a historical museum to be preserved!

Sherry took the journal out and already it is half full of splendid notes and thank yous!

Many interesting reads and dates – so she added her own!

I think this is a wonderful idea.

THANK YOU FOR READING PAPA’S WORLD!

We continued our walk onto the beach – with fantastic calming skies!

Gray clouds with the breaking of blue skies – the clouds moving inland away from the beach!

Papa’s World – Drywall done – cabinets in – tile next – getting close!

We pulled up to the front of the house – DRYWALL in the trash bin!

You see – there has been a delay and shortage in drywall – all over the country –

which has held up our completion by a month! Along with inspectors and inspections!

I was excited as this meant the drywall was being put in!

When I walked into the garage – it had the first coat of MUD on!
Then – I went inside and it was all done – first coat of mud – we were back on schedule after four weeks!

It has been a long four to five weeks with hardly any progress – but we prayed and it is now moving forward.

Looking toward the front from the sun room – to the left – hallway – entrance to the bedrooms and bathroom – middle is outer wall to the office – and to the right hallway to laundry room and garage. Open space is vaulted living room.
The kitchen and breakfast nook.
Window to the left – breakfast nook and the yard – rear windows – the outside enclosed lanai.
Looking from the hallway into the living room – to the left – kitchen island and the breakfast nook – to the right – Sherry standing in the sun room. The whole back of the house is windows – open patio behind her through the windows.
Master bedroom with bathroom to the left and hall way door to the right.

And two days later when we visited – the mud on the dry wall was completed – sanded – and we had CABINETS!

Kitchen and Island
Master bathroom
Guest bathroom

We are excited – they told us tile is going in – grading outside – doors to be hung.

Now there is a delay and shortage on PAINT!

Because of the ICE STORM in Texas and the Pandemic.

They told us they would continue doing the things they could until they got the paint.

Our new community – Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – mainland side – LOT # 89!

We are happy – moving forward -perhaps by the time this posts – we will have a move in date!

Our lot is backed by trees that will not be cleared – it is deemed protected wetlands.

We will have lots of roads to walk and new trails going in.

Almost all the purple area has been sold years ago – but no one has seemed to build on them –

maybe a half dozen really big homes!

We do not know why – investment?

You can buy lots there from individuals for a hefty price!

For now it remains paved roads – old growth shaded trees and street lights – utilities

and beautiful green areas and ponds.

Papa’s World – When they were little – now one in college – one to start in fall – one into H.S.

A few short years ago – Maddy ( finished Sophomore college) Ella – (enter college in fall) all grown up now!

Maddy has been named to third team in her conference playing soccer – as a Sophomore she was in the top five on her team in four different categories –

Ella – is playing her last soccer for her senior year – undefeated – and aiming for states. She is one of five or six off her team to have signed letters of intent to play in college – she will be attending Randolph College and in the same conference as Maddy.

Ella – Papa – Maddy – it seems like just yesterday – we were the support team for their mother and father and uncle and Tammy and Sherry running the ten mile Cherry Blossom Race in Washington D.C. – where we stationed ourselves to welcome them all across the finish line! Here we are in our front yard before we left for D.C. They were troopers – following me around – standing up on a bench so they could watch the race! Carrying clothes – back packs – water bottles – everything needed for the finish line that day in May.

As the years passed – Sarah came along – the baby little sister – always making the older two laugh.

She has a way about her – always the forefront of fashion.

Wants her grandma to take her to N.Y.C. to see Broadway and shows!

Sarah – Maddy – Ella and Papa – Christmas eve waiting to go to bed – and wake up for Christmas morning!

I miss those special times – all three sitting at the top of the stairs – waiting for their parents to get up – smiling – laughing – such great kids and polite.

Today – we are scattered – us being in S.C. Maddy – coming home from Lynchburg Va.

Ella completing her senior year of H.S. and Sarah about to enter H.S.

Papa with Maddy at one of her early travel team games – she went on to driving herself 65 miles each way for practice three times a week to join a more elite travel team where we lived in Loudoun county , Va. catching the eye of college coaches – now playing at The University Of Lynchburg in Va.

Thinking back to the early years – the smallest one out there with a skill set – determination and quickness. I always thought she should of gone into track as she ran a 5:40 mile and did not train much!

Now – today all three are so tall – athletic – Maddy at 5 ‘ 6″ Ella at 5′ 8 1/2 ” and Sarah almost to 5’ 8″ ( 15 years old soon)

I miss those days of the three little ones – giggling – laughing – on the trampoline – hiking – soccer – dance – running –

being little girls – climbing up into my lap – singing songs as I picked them up!

Today – they are young ladies with their grandma – the little ones are gone but not forgotten – MEMORIES!

Papa’s World – Friends – last day – golf at The Valley – East port – dinner – SNOOKY’S – ocean

Sherry and Pam – about to start our golf adventure – Pam could not golf – still recovering from a achilles surgery

On their last full day – Bob wanted to play golf – we last played together I would guess 1965 or 1966!

A very long time ago – and he had their clubs in the RV but had not used them all winter.

Pam – who was still recovering from surgery on her heel – would do the driving and Bob rode with me.

Bob and I went to school together from grade one to grade twelve.

They have wintered the last two seasons in their RV – this time it was in Florida.

They made it a point to stop here on their way to family in Nashville before heading home in N.H.

Sherry and Pam
Waiting to tee off – we like this course which sits right on Rte. 17 in Little River – S.C. It is a short course but fun to play. Sherry and I have golfed here alone and with friends.
Now – she hits it on the fairway most times – and every once in a while – will hit it just right and bingo – it goes a long ways – here is a 298 yard hole for her – and this is her drive!

When you play a scramble and her and Cindy hit from the women’s tees – it is good to have them both on your team!

After a good day of golf – we scrambled to a 44 on both nines – we took them to Cherry Grove to one of our favorite places to eat – “SNOOKY’S” on the Beach.

This has become our go to place to take visitors – food is good – and you sit ocean front just yards off the sand.

We have many – many memories of growing up together in a small town in NWPA – called Eldred.

Many adventures of sleeping out under the stars – roaming the streets after curfew at 10:00 PM.

Nothing bad – raid a garden or two – sneak some beer – campfire – canoe trips down the river –

playing sports together – proms – dances – joining the exployer’s together-

driving – family – both his and mine.

Bob and Sherry checking out the beach where we walk every day!
Pam and I a selfie while they discuss the beach!
Ending our day together – walking to the cars. Pam and Bob!

Papa’s World – friends – the pier – Barefoot Landing – Crooked Hammock Brewery!

Next to last day – Papa Bob Pam Sherry – near their campground and RV. A visit to Apache Pier!

We had so much to pack in so little time – touring – seeing the house – Mother’s day – catching up – FRIENDS!

Their RV and campground was down the beach about a mile and one half.

They could see this pier from their beach so we decided to drive to it and just take a look around.

Just beyond these tall buildings – 21 to 25 years ago – Sherry and I spent I think three different vacations here!

We would walk up the beach and past this pier to the campground.

So we knew what was here and have many fond memories of her parents – sister and my sister and brother in law here. We also spent vacation time here with friends Steve and Elaine. Our friends from back home in WNY!

Bob and Pam – Bob and I went to grade school – middle school and high school together – life long friends – and got back in touch after one of our H.S. reunions – he had moved to New Hampshire away from Pa. and NYS. Keeping in touch is like normal best buddies do when life comes along – only seeing them at special times – a lot of years in between but memories and laughs renewed!

Here we are at The Crooked Hammock Brewery in Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach.

We have come to really like this place and Sherry actually likes some of the beer!

Papa’s World – Mother and Daughters – Sherry – Debby and Tammy! Beautiful inside and out!

Dreams – mother and daughters share the DREAM!

They laugh – cry – hold one another – all the while sharing life together – even though they are 300 miles apart

The bond exists each and every day!

Debby – the oldest – Sherry – known as Grandma and MorMor – Tammy – the youngest.

When we decided to move to NVA in 1999 – Tammy decided right away to follow us down to Va.

In one years time – Debby moved with her husband and small one year old daughter Maddy!

They have always been near each other – 3 hours away and no further.

Daughter and Mother

Sherry decided to become a CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH – and start her own business from home –

As a away to supplement her retirement income – it worked and she retired early!

Network marketing – in HEALTH and NUTRITION!

Today – that business thrives and allows us the freedom to travel –

move and build a new home.

In that same since – 15 years ago – Debby decided to do the same – with two young children –

And moving out to the country as it was cheaper to live – she also followed her mothers footsteps!

She became a CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH – and started her own business from home –

And surpassed her mother!

Today – they both lead “TEAM GENERATIONS” – promoting health and nutrition for families and children.

Daughter and Mother – Tammy and Sherry

During that time – Tammy married – had twin girls and then our first grandson!

She also followed her mother into the Health and Nutrition field – establishing her own home based business.

Along the way she quit her job and opened up a Upscale children’s consignment shop –

And has recently added another home based business – promoting healthy eating!

She now runs three business’s!

And it is because she is her mother’s daughter!

IMAGINE – ACT – EMULATE – LEAD – DUPLICATE – SUCCEED – SUCCESS!

The story of Mother and Daughters – although now 300 miles away – following her in her footsteps –

always in contact – we visit and they visit – zoom – text or call.

Promoting HEALTH and NUTRITION – one child – one day at a time.

Papa’s World – Mother’s day – with friends at Calabash – OYSTER ROCK!

Toasting to MOTHER’S DAY with good friends – Bob and Pam and Sherry! CHEERS!

We had planed this little get together for some time now.

They had been in Florida for the winter in their RV.

Moving around down there and then working their way back North.

They were in a campground eight miles from the condo’

So for three whole days – we gave them a tour – but the first day was Mother’s Day.

After their arrival we went down and joined them – sitting around – talking – and we stopped and brought them salads.

Then it was for a very quick walk on the beach where they were camping!

It was so WINDY – we took this picture and headed back to the campsite.

A lot of self control in not staying on the beach for a walk! LOL
The next day we picked them up – toured our new home and discovered the drywall had been installed!

Here – we are at Oyster Rock on the ICW in Calabash N.C. where we had reservations for dinner.

A walk along the boardwalk outside of Oyster Rock – here is where the fishing boats return with their catches!
Charter and fishing boats – they provide fresh catch for these places – including Oyster Rock – on their menus.
Fresh catch – Flounder – broiled!
Fresh catch – Mahi-Mahi! Catch of the day!
And of course – down here – HUSH PUPPIES!
Pam Sherry Papa Bob – a wonderful Mother’s day dinner with good friends!

At Oyster Rock in Calabash N.C. on the ICW!

Papa’s World – before the pandemic – Sarasota Fla. Loved this city! Just too far away!

Papa and Sherry – hugging a tree in Sarasota , Florida – we had considered moving here – but it was just too far to drive for family and friends and for us to go back home without flying.

Then the Pandemic hit and it never came back into the discussion again.

But – I really liked it here and if we came to Florida – this would be my first choice!

I do not remember the name of the garden but it is city center – and a beautiful place to walk!
We were among huge old growth trees – a lot of shade and a sort of tree – boardwalk that wound its way

in and through the tree branches!

Papa’s World – birthday – 72 years – growing old and young walking on the beach.

One of my favorite pass times since we moved to NMB – morning walks on the beach!
Sherry told me this was my day – being my birthday – and I said I wanted to go for a early morning walk – on the beach.

Usually – we do not walk this early – but I am a early riser – 5:00 am. each and every morning!

I have been that way my entire life – but I also go to bed early – by 8:30 pm.

I react to what my body wants – if I go past that feeling of wanting to sleep – then I am awake for hours!

But – with that being said – my body automatically awakes the same time every morning!

And then – without proper sleep – I feel lousy all day!

A good nights sleep – waking up – writing my blog – getting dressed and then we walk out to this!

Wide open beach – low tide – gray – white clouds – blue skies and warm sun!

My kind of day!

Papa – checking his phone – walking on my birthday – life is good – I am blessed.

Papa’s World – a evening with friends golfing Magnolia Greens – late dinner!

A bright sun rise to a eventful full day of walking – getting ready – visiting the storage unit – and finally – teeing off!
Buck on the first tee at 4:40 pm. We were golfing late – Cindy had a lot of stuff to do at work!

So – the plan was made – golf nine – eat dinner and then go home!

We could of stayed with them – but – lugging all the stuff I need – my sleep machine etc. just easier to drive the hour plus drive back to the condo – besides – plenty of more times exist in the future!

Sherry getting ready to tee off on the second hole!

We played our scramble format – Buck and me – they played best ball – WE LOST!

Cindy teeing off – Sherry spotting the ball!

Now – we lost two holes to them – one by one stroke and one by two strokes!

We play even up – and we tied the other seven holes.

But – on the hole we lost by one stroke – we parred – they birdied!

On the one we lost by two strokes – they parred and we four putted – just the way it goes!

Cindy – birdie putt – made it – we parred – they are so good!

We have played this format for years and years – we at one time played couples vs couple – then we played mixed couple vs. mixed couple – but the gals challenged us – the other ways split pretty even – this way – THEY WIN!

My buddy – my partner – golfing together – we did beat them a few weeks ago – but we had to shoot a 39 to beat them!
Thank you for reading Papa’s World – my drive – second shot coming up – we four putted – double bogie – LOST!
Sherry teeing off – right down the middle – both are that way!

Papa’s World – sometimes – it is relaxing after a nice day – to just sit on the beach!

After dinner – we decided to drive to the beach – get out our chairs and just take it all in for a hour!

Sherry is always drawn to the surf – walking in the water – still too cold for me! LOL

The only downside to this was the wind – it was strong – and would get into your eyes!

Hardly anyone down here even though it was the mid ’70’s out!

We only brought with us our water – and a lot of people walked past us – but only a few sitting on the sand.

The relaxing nature – the quiet – only birds – sounds of the waves.

Here you can see what the wind does when it is strong and blowing – it makes the sand look like waves – no footprints remain even though people are walking by!

It was a good hour to visit regardless of the wind!

Papa’s World – took a little walk – not our usual – but to Broadway on the Beach – then Myrtle Beach boardwalk – THREE MILES!

I said to Sherry – lets change it up a wee bit – a different walk – scenery – and revisit some places we have not been in a few months!

So – we drove South to Broadway On The Beach – have not been there in months!

One thing I did notice – Barefoot Landing seems to attract more people!

Not many people here and it is almost 11:30 am.

We were able to walk in and out of stores – no crowds – peaceful – and a bright sun shine day – warm!
I WONDER WHERE THE PEOPLE ARE? LOL
No matter – we came and did what we wanted to do – walk!

Of course I did not go in EVERY store she did! LOL

We still had a good time for over a hour – walking – looking and yes – sitting in rockers!

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!

Papa’s World – Fish Market bar & grill – Ocean Isle Beach and the ICW!

The view from the top deck of the Fish Market bar & grill on the ICW & OBI harbor!

We had passed this from the causeway bridge every time we have come over to visit the beach.

And in reading up on it – found that it is the sister bar & grill to the one in downtown Shallotte N.C.

Which we were at one night after playing golf with the McBride’s and loved it!

Here – we decided just to have drinks and split shrimp wrapped in bacon!

I do not do this often so it was a treat for me!

AND IT WAS GOOD and fast service on that top deck.

You go to the bar – get your drinks – place your order – pay for it –

and it seemed like a few minutes a waiter comes up the steps and yells out your name with what you ordered!

The causeway bridge coming over the ICW from the mainland – we are four miles from here in our new house build
The ICW and beyond that the main land – this waterway comes into OIB where the bars are and gas pumps.

There is another bar and grill here called SHARKEY’S and next time we will check that out!

There are also boat rentals here – gift shop and fishing departures.

It is nice to know that we can be here in ten minutes from the new house.

I DID and LOVED THEM!

Papa’s World – Sunrise – Ocean Isle Beach – Fish Market and the views of the ICW!

A Sunday morning sunrise from our condo – in Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach – S.C. WELCOME!

On this Sunday morning we decided after church service at the new church we will be attending –

We decided to visit Ocean Isle Beach – which will be less than ten minutes from the new house!

We need to explore this area as most likely it will be where we go to.

They have a summer concert series of live music beginning the end of May.

So we checked out the stage and open seating area – it is bring your own chairs and maybe food and drink!

We walked to the community center which sits right on the beach –
has bathrooms (clean) and outdoor showers plus covered picnic tables.

Beach access and a volleyball net and court. We found where the public can park for free –

and it will be a great place to take family and friends.

Close walking distance to bar and grills and shops!

One of the two walk ways to the beach from the community center – the other is a long ramp for handicap access! Well thought out and it is open from 10:00 am. to about 5:00 pm.
One direction of the view of Ocean Isle Beach at almost high tide!
The opposite direction of the beach at almost high tide!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – the next blog will be of The Fish Market bar and grill!

We found Sharkey’s also but will return to try that one!

Papa’s World – lunch at Bouy’s and a street music festival on Main street!

I have wanted to stop in here and have lunch ever since we got here on 10-1-20!

It is a local place right on the beach in North Myrtle Beach!

These places always catch my eye – I just get a feeling about them!

They generally have good food and live music –

and this day – the food was great – a salad with grilled fish – and the music?

Well – right across the street is a block long and a block wide vacant lot –

And it was packed with tents – you could rent – and thousand of people!

A huge stage and three bands playing for six hours!

WE WERE RIGHT ACROSS FROM THE OPENING OF NORTH MYRTLE BEACH MUSIC FESTIVAL!

Our view from our table while eating lunch!

It is the first major event sanctioned by the town government since the start of the pandemic 14 months ago!

And people were out and about in golf carts – cars – trucks and just walking!

This was roped off and a charge to enter – you could rent out a canopy – and carry in drinks and food!

We did not go inside the ropes – instead after we ate – we walked around and around the whole roped off area as did many other people – they had chairs set up outside the ropes and golf carts – the police were there and ticketing anyone not parked legal.

I would say – inside – a thousand people – or more – I guess this is the fourth one they have had like this over the years – and the radio station was there and it also was broadcasting from the beach which was just as crowded!

Sherry entering the beach on main street!

We tried to walk the beach – but it was really crowed and full of young people – all right next to each other!

A look back toward sixth street where we usually go – and the other direction had even more people!

This area is pretty much not locked down – and you could tell the tourist season has begun!

I am happy for the the store owners who have suffered so much – many shut the doors and will not return.

But – we decided this was way too crowed for us – so we returned to the music and walked toward our condo.

Pausing once again outside the ropes to listen to a band – really good singing all the classics of summer of the 60’s and 70’s!

Papa’s World – Crooked Hammock – Greg Normans – Carolina Opry – with FRIENDS!

PAPA BUCK SHERRY CINDY outside Crooked Hammock Brewery in Barefoot landing S.C.

They stopped and picked us up – we had tickets to see Time Warp at the Carolina Opry Theater in Myrtle Beach

But first – we stopped at Barefoot Landing at the new Brewery Crooked Hammock.

Sherry had decided to make a switch to beer – as that is what we mostly drink.

She wanted to try it and just see if she would like it! ( SHE DID)!

She and Cindy ordered a flight of four different brews and tasted each one!

She found two she could drink!

Now – when together – she can drink some brews! LOL

We then walked across the street to Greg Normans – bar and eatery.

Yes – that Greg Norman – the Aussie great golfer!

It was a first for us and we had walked past it numerous times.

My lettuce wedge with salmon was excellent and they all said theirs was good as well!

AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE!!!!!!!

Will go back!

We had tickets – just a short drive down the beach in Myrtle Beach.
To see TIME WARP – music from the 60’s – 70’s and 80’s – what we grew up with!

And it was fantastic!

We knew every non stop song for over one hour – and then intermission!

And then for one hour more – non stop!

Do to the Pandemic and Social Distancing – no one sat in front – side or back of us.

It said the show was sold out but it was less than half full.

Very professional – wearing masks to our seats – and no one within I would say almost ten feet!

It felt good to once again enjoy music and just relax to a very good broad way style revue!

A cast of dozens – top performers – America’s got talent – The Voice and American Idol.

So many talented people who all can sing – dance – play instruments and perform at a high level!

Well – I had a beer – but it was a special time for special drinks!

Papa’s World – early morning sunrise and then early walk on the beach – before 7:30 am. !

The sun peaking above the tree line – this is in the direction of Cherry Grove – North Myrtle Beach is too the right – beyond that tree live is Ocean Blvd and then the beach.

It was a warm morning – 73 degrees – and Sherry had said she wanted to walk early!

The view here is like this every morning when there are no clouds!

It is one half mile to the gated entrance on Hillside drive.

We walk this almost every day – and then turn left and walk up two blocks to 8th. street.

Turn right and walk one block to Ocean Blvd. – cross the street –

and walk into the parking lot – we like this lot – it has a bathroom – and a shower to wash the sand off!

It also has a boardwalk from the parking lot – to a deck and then steps right onto the beach!

In . 66 of a mile – we are standing on the beach!

Here I am standing on the deck before the steps to the beach!

Early morning sunrise – ten minute walk from our condo.

We will miss this but in thirty minutes from our new home – we can be back here!

Sherry at the deck at the end of the ramp to the beach on 8th avenue – North Myrtle Beach!
We begin our walk North toward the Cherry Grove Pier – beautiful day – sun shine on the water.
Sherry walking on the surf edge – actually the water felt somewhat warm on the feet!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – beach day – warm sun – but cool breeze off the Ocean – three hours – relaxing!

She said to me after about a hour – you can not lean back in this chair and take a nap!

And she was right – while we had different chairs – you couldn’t in mine either!

Papa – checking my phone for Pandora – seeing how much battery life was left!

Music to the left and music to the right – I just turned it off!

Depending on the wind – I could hear one or the other and with no wind – Both!

But – what a beautiful day – almost 80 degrees – hot sun but cool breeze off the ocean.
And then they have to put it on the right way! LOL!

We decided to stay for two hours and then we added another hour,

Since we had eaten almost everything we had brought with us –

We decided that was enough and went back to the car –

Yes – instead of walking down – we drove only because we had our chairs-

speaker – drinks – little table and the food and towels!

Those three hours involved some walking – some reading and some listening to the music and watching a kite and people watching!
Soon – it would be back to the condo and this view – either way we win!

Papa’s World – The SHAG- Fat Harolds – dancing the night away – North Myrtle Beach

It was here or close to here that THE SHAG started!

It was a beach dance created in the ’40’s along this beach.

The first I believe was in Cherry Grove – but that club was wiped out

by a hurricane in the ’50’s!

Other clubs had formed over the years and along main street

in North Myrtle Beach was the hot spot for SHAGGING!

It grew so popular it spread all across the country and became the state dance!

Clubs were formed and it went worldwide.

Competitions were held and champions crowned!

It reminds me of the Jitter bug – Strolling – Swing – Dirty dancing – all rolled into one –

where you have contact almost 100 % of the time with your dance partner!

And – from what I could see – the age group was 40 to 80 years plus old!

CUTTING THE RUG!

It did not matter how old you were – they still danced and they were good!
Sherry and I have walked by this building dozens of times – it was closed up – deserted looking!

Wondering what it was and if it was empty?

Then – listening to the radio station – 94.9 THE SURF – we found out!

On TV we found out!

FAT HAROLDS was reopening after being closed of over a year –

because of Covid19 and the Pandemic.

Which I found out hit this establishment really hard.

I was told that early on – a half dozen people passed away – having caught the virus here.

And – I could see why as it was the older generations who were dancing.

It caught them by surprise and they -the owners – shut it down.

But now it was back after the state reopened – and it was I learned a national landmark.

This is the third location – and has been here for twenty plus years – since the ’40’s!

World competitions – nationwide competitions – local – all held here or across main street

on the beach in a big stage and dance floor.

A view of one of two dance floors – four bars – one at the entrance – one on the main dance floor and two on the second dance floor in the rear.
There are hundreds of these signs of dance shag clubs all over the nation. And a tribute to the man who brought it to the forefront – FAT HAROLD! Who sadly passed away in 2015.
The main bar on the dance floor number one – Fat Harold – was known all over the country and many pictures of him and famous performers hang from the walls. This was the spot where you came to dance for all these years!
On this single wall – dozens of pictures dedicated over the many – many years to DJ’s – radio – who spun the records to the SHAG! And radio hosts still do to this day.
It is a true living museum to the past 80 plus years!

Pictures – a Hollywood walk of fame throughout the sidewalks of main street honoring dancers from the past 60 years! With there names and year of dancing!

Fat Harold – known to the music world – and now the tradition continues with the reopening!

PAPA’S WORLD: livinglifedoingitmyway fitztdf@aol.com A day to remember – a visit to the reopening

OF FAT HAROLDS on Main Street – North Myrtle beach!

SHERRY: CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH http://www.sf.juiceplus.com ssherrylynn49@aol.com

Yes – we walked by this place of business dozens of times – just wondering what it was –

and found out it was a historical club – for a historical dance some 80 plus years old!

FAT HAROLDS IS BACK!

THE SHAG FAT HAROLDS DANCING THE NIGHT AWAY once again – North Myrtle Beach , S.C.

Papa’s World – BROOK GREEN GARDEN – with friends – a day well spent!

John Sherry Nancy

We met them there – John and Nancy and a neighbor couple – Pat and Paul.

It was almost a half way point for us and them.

A beautiful day – they had attended Community Lutheran Church – in Sterling Va. as we did.

We became friends and a little over a year before we moved – they had moved to Charleston S.C.

We have visited them and they have visited us.

Once before we met up in Georgetown S.C.

John Nancy sitting Pat Sherry and Paul sitting – you can walk for miles inside this garden!
Every where you turn you find statues such as this!
There is a nature walk – maybe two miles long – through fields which were once planted with rice – a major crop for this plantation – I can not even imagine working in there with the snakes and gators!
Once a rice field – today a marsh!
Beautiful fountains across the garden!
Statues by famous artists all over the world! With inscriptions on just how it came to be here!
John Pat Paul Nancy
I am just amazed at some of these statues and how they did them!
Also part of the gardens are boat rides on the river that winds its way through the estate!
Boat rides along the banks and what used to be rice fields of the plantation.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

BROOK GREEN GARDEN – south of Myrtle Beach – on route 17.

A place we will go back to.

Just so much to take in – walking – seeing how they lived back in the early 1800’s.

FRIENDS PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog
Thanks everyone!

Papa’s World – BROOK GREEN GARDENS – a must to see south of Myrtle Beach on rte 17.

If you want a peaceful walk – there are miles of trails and paths – among the old growth live oaks – the tall cypress and pine trees of South Carolina.
Along the way – a boardwalk – near the marsh – through the grounds of the old slave quarters – and see the history of this historic old plantation – and the huge rice fields – and wonder how these people lived – worked and toiled.
