Papa’s World – Sunrise – Windy beach – Full Moon – Charlie Brown Christmas!

NO IT DOES NOT GET OLD!
TWO AND ONE HALF MONTHS – WAKING UP TO THIS!

Every morning – the sunrise from our condo –

it paints a different sky each day.

I watch this as it develops each morning –

Sherry has the same view from our bedroom!

She has almost never seen the sunrise – but now she wakes up to this

and has almost trained herself to wake up to it!

Some days – we walk when we should of just stayed inside! LOL

Those days are mostly when the high winds are around.

One is because of the giant trees here!

They are high above our fourth floor condo!

And branches – even though small – come down!

We do not want to get hit by them!

The wind causing the sand to blow across the beach!
You can see that when it is windy – very few people venture forth! The sand is blown across all but wiping out the footprints!

Papa and MorMor – we tried as you can see –

but the wind was so strong –

and the sand was stinging our faces!

We decided not to for go a walk here

and instead walked the sidewalks where it was bearable!

We returned to the condo after getting in our three mile

beach less walk!

There are days such as this that we also do our errands!

Or go to a late lunch early dinner

when no one is around

keeping social distance!

Back at the condo – we await the late show

not on TV but outside

once again in the dark sky

the rising of not the sun

but the full moon!

Both sun rise and moon lit nights from our own private Lanai!

Papa’s World – after scrubbing down the Lanai – we treated ourselves – 3 hours on the beach!

Our little escape for three hours!

We did a job that Sherry has been wanting to do – wash the walls of the Lanai down by hand!

The Lanai is screened in and has a vinyl siding – which with storms – gets dirty.

So – with soap and water and some cloths – we cleaned it all down

Took us about two hours –

and then we treated ourselves to BEACH TIME!

A few people were out – being this was the middle of the week. It was in the low to mid 70’s!
Looking South on North Myrtle Beach – we decided to walk North – toward the pier two miles away!

This day – we did not spend all the time sitting – but walking for most of it!

We walked to the pier two miles away!

We try to walk three miles a day – and as much of that we can on the beach!

Sherry – while walking – will do her network marketing business with her phone!

This has always been a dream of mine – walking in the sand and surf every day!

Always a view in the sky – dark clouds contrasting with white – and then blue skies – and sunshine!

We had never walked all the way to Cherry Grove – point pier –

And – along the way we collected shells for a church group back home!

Beyond the tall buildings – just visible – is the pier – so you can see just how far we walked!
Tidal pools forming behind me as I walked through the surf. The water felt warm – and some pools we had to walk around as they were above our knees!

This day – just to walk was relaxing – cleaning the Lanai –

A day in the sun – living life to the plus!

PAPA’S WORLD!

Papa’s World – late afternoon walk on the beach – daily routine!

The sunrise gives out the desire to begin walking outside – however – a cold snap – so walking the beach in the afternoon!

The warm rays from the sun – sand beneath my feet – casting a shadow – living our dreams!

Sherry walking – we have come to always head to the beach –

and as Sherry says ” SEE OUR OCEAN”!

But – as soon as we start the one half mile walk

we can actually hear the surf.

When there is a storm somewhere OUT THERE –

the waves get large as well as the sound.

Listening – as we walk closer –

and then – breaking the plain of the dunes

we see the waters – cresting – wave after wave

Warn sunshine – large waves –

making the music we love

OUR OCEAN – so we have come to call it!

Footprints in the sand – a hazy sky – luring us on – walking – walking!

Much too soon – it is back to the parking lot and straight up the street

to our gate back onto the gated community!

Where in the late afternoon sun – the ducks and geese – come together – to rest for the night!

Papa’s World – enjoying a sunny day at Tanger outlets

A day just shopping and watching – sitting in the sun – drinking a coffee – watching people!

Being retired – when Sherry asks – “Do you want to go shopping”?

I jump up and say “WHEN & WHERE”!

I know I am going to like just waiting and watching people!

Shoes – shorts – shirt – no problems!

We drove about 20 minutes down rte. 17 – to Tanger Outlets!

Every store imaginable – my favorite shoe store – Sketchers!

And a Starbucks – for a sipping coffee!

Who would of known one year ago – I would be sitting outside

in November – sun – warmth – 75 degrees –

Palm trees and Christmas decorations!

Christmas tree decorated among the Palms!

For your information – I love warm weather

I am not a fan of ice – and snow and cold!

I gave my snow shovel away!

Red bows – garlands – lights – and Christmas songs playing – this is my type of holiday!

Someday I would like to share this with our family – holidays in the Sun!

Palm tree= warm sunshine – Christmas tree – red bows – people watching – Holidays in the South!

Papa’s World – Afternoons on the beach!

Looking North on North Myrtle Beach toward Cherry Grove.

Almost every afternoon – we take our two chairs

my BOSE radio speaker –

Pandora on my phone for easy listening

and a couple drinks

then we sit – walk – read and watch the Ocean and hear the waves.

This part of our dream vagabond life

coming true –

living life – walking healthy – moving –

observing – listening –

“HOTEL CALIFORNIA” in the background.

I have my GILLIGAN hat on –

to keep my protection against those sun rays.

I wear a shirt for the same.

Sometimes I have a single beer –

most times it is water.

We walk the tidal pools

the water feels warm

fishermen are always on the beach and in the surf

Down here by the shore –

the clouds and blue sky are beautiful

The sand is not hot to the feet

and is like soft powder

IMAGINE ALL THE PEOPLE!

Mostly older folks here

but you do see the young ones braving the water

We generally stay for two hours

leaving between 5:00 and 5:30 PM.

On our next bucket list of things to do

and in a few days will become a reality

Is to come down to the beach at FULL MOON!

We are almost there now!

Afternoons on the beach

listening to easy rock

reading – doing some network marketing

dreaming – making dreams come true.

Peace – quiet – surf – warmth from the sun

for us – it all has just begun.

MORMOR & PAPA

AFTERNOONS ON THE BEACH!

Papa’s World – homeless – our next adventure!

We had some apprehension – we were social distancing.

But – we also knew everyone else was also.

Sandbridge Va.

We were going to the beach with our life long friends

and their family.

What had started out long before the Covid 19

was a vacation planned by cousins

then the travel restrictions and pandemic.

But our friends daughter had put down a big deposit

and they were not letting her back out unless they rented it!

Word went out to close friends – can we help her out by renting a room?

Everyone was a friend of a friend –

and had been social distancing –

that was the start and we decided to go and take our two grand daughters

who had been wanting to go to the beach!

Across the street from the beach – we had arrived.

We knew a lot of the people – some we did not know.

But – what was a hard thought process

turned into a wonderful week.

We settled in – and a agenda had been thought up ahead of time.

We knew exactly when it would be our turn for dinner.

And what we were going to fix –

Jim and Dottie were our partners for dinner on Thursday!

But our first night there with a late check in was Sunday!

PIZZA order was on the menu for the first night

and less than 2 blocks away was a pizza shop!

Two blocks or less in this direction sat the pizza place.

The road you see here is the pathway to and from the beach.

No sidewalks on this beach road and the entrance to the beach

two houses in either direction!

So – everyone walked – ran – biked or drove this road.

Sometimes on both sides!

When driving this road – you would go slow and stop

giving the people the right of way ! LOVED IT!!!

Our view from the deck right off the kitchen dining and living rooms

There were nine bedrooms with Seven masters!

Ten bathrooms and three levels and a in ground pool.

The beach is very wide here and almost all of this is residential!

The sand was hot during the day – because we had a very hot week!

One day was over 100 with heat index of 104!

There were kids – little ones – mid size ones

& our grand daughters 14 and 17 being the oldest!

So they pretty much did what they wanted with our permission

always asking – polite – and everyone loved them.

Our first sun rise Monday morning from the deck

I have been and always am a early riser!

I am up before the sun !

But – sitting here waiting with a cup of coffee

and capturing my first sunrise –

Was well worth the rise and shine of the day!

Sarah Maddy Ella

Maddy – who leaves again for college this weekend

choose to work but Sarah and Ella – choose to come along

and I am so happy they did.

The first day of our vagabond vacation with the grand daughters.

Thank you for reading Papa’ World

The week continues in the next blog!

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 !

Thank you for reading my daily blog

Just little everyday things in my life.
