Papa’s World – Tiki Bar – Jinks Creek – Sunset!

Papa’s World – no politics – just smiles – families – friends – life to the plus.

We drive past Jinks Creek every time we cross the causeway and go to the beach –

Ocean Isle Beach that is.

Back in October a couple of my buddies were here and we golfed –

after, we came to the Tiki Bar on the top floor for dinner and drinks.

What a sight it was with the sunset – looking out over the water and marsh.

I had tried to get Sherry – my wife to stop in many times –

but she thought always it was too expensive.

Finally, she agreed – and after some beach time, we stopped just to have drinks.

She was impressed at what she experienced!

The beginning of the sunset.

The clouds parted
And then the magic of sunset on the top deck of the Tiki Bar at JINKS CREEK!
She was glad we had come – we split an appetizer and had a drink .

PAPA’S WORLD Sherry and Papa – top deck Tiki Bar – JINKS CREEK – SUNSET – Ocean Isle Beach, N.C.

Papa’s World – After dinner – once again on the beach – SUNSET that is!

Nature paints the skies at sunset.

We were excited when we moved near the border of S.C. and N.C. – a ten-minute drive to the beach.

A lot of nights we just look at each other after cleaning up the kitchen and “LET’S GO”!

Ocean Isle Beach is a ten-minute drive over the causeway and to the sand.

However – we really like to drive the extra five minutes and go to Sunset Beach!

Here we drive to the far west end and park and walk the long boardwalk over the dunes.

The view up the beach east to the pier.

Even at this time, the beach is busy with people – swimming – walking, or catching late rays from the sun.

The beach here is flatter than OIB and we like that!

This evening the wind was coming off the ocean causing the waves to be higher.
All in all – a great evening to just relax by the sea!

Sunset Beach after dinner – one of the WHYS we moved here to Cameron Woods Community.

Papa’s World – Creamsickle sky and flower beds!

GOOD DAY HERE AT PAPA’S WORLD!

I love sunrises and sunsets – a good way to start and end your day!

Sunset at Cameron Woods Community, Ocean Isle Beach, N.C.

The sky slowly turned into a creamsicle color as the sunset!

A view West of the sky over the front lawn stone beds with flower pots!

We have finished all the landscaping and are presently putting in flowers leaving open spaces.

All our trees are edged with stones around them.

At night – they are all lit up with solar lights.

The beginning of the creamsicle sky in the west.
Part of the flower beds on the front side of the house. My favorite spot for morning coffee!

Papa’s World – Sunset on SUNSET BEACH, N.C.

While visiting us – our daughter and granddaughter went with us to Sunset Beach

to view its renowned sunset.

Here Ella, Sherry, and Debby stand gazing across the marsh to the West.

It seems everyone heads to this location –

as I dropped them off and had to drive a couple blocks to park.

But – it was worth the walk back in time to capture the mother and daughter doing a selfie!

Debby and Ella, just as the sun is setting over the marsh.
Three generations – Grandma – Mother and Daughter.

The trip was worth it and while no clouds for reflection – the marsh provides that quiet feeling!

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – our private backyard – nature abounds.

Faces in the trees look back at you as you sip a drink or coffee.
I have added these to the trees – there is no purpose other than my own enjoyment.

In these trees are countless birds and sounds that I can not identify.

I smile when I look at them – and to me, that is all that counts!

But we have so much more back there.

PAPA granddaughter ELLA SHERRY

We have SUNSETS that are to die for!

Reflection of SUNSETS in the trees to the EAST!

Soon we will add two more Palm trees back here!

ELLA and daughter DEBBY

All the family tends to end up on the back patio and lanai – with seating and a SOLO STOVE firepit.

Our SOLO STOVE firepit on the back patio.

We look for dead wood and pine combs to burn along with purchasing wood from the stores.

Once the fire gets going it is almost smokeless!

DEBBY and ELLA – hoping in June the whole family can visit!

We choose this lot because of the woods and how it would be situated for SUNRISES and SUNSETS!

It does not disappoint!

SUNSETS and SOLO STOVES in the BACKYARD!

Papa’s World – Sunset -Sunrise and the Tower Garden!

A look to the East at Sunset

From the end of our driveway – we can see both the Sunrise and the Sunset!

As the fall comes on and summer has ended – the Sun starts to move each day –

and in this picture – the sunrise is more to the right – in the fall it has moved to the left.

Turning around and facing the house – the Sunset in the West!

We came to view this lot at around 2:00 pm. on a sunny afternoon a year ago last October.

And we could see how the Sun would go across the lot

and knew we would have views of Sunrise and Sunset – we were hooked and the trees would remain.

Standing on our patio in the backyard – The trees and the Sunset.

Papa’s World – February – 77 degrees – BEACHING IT!

After a winter with rare snow and even rarer ice – 77 degrees and we headed for the beach!

We moved here – almost on the S.C. border – to have the weather we can walk in every day!

And we do that 90 % of the time – except when the wind is blowing!

YES – we are fair-weather walkers!

But then – it seems once a week – it is BEACH WEATHER!

And a few other people feel the same way!
For being off-season and not spring – locals hit the beach!
Sherry – chair – sand and the ocean – water – fishing boats – casino boat way out – life is good!
Spending quality time with neighborhood friends for a couple hours of beaching it!

PAPA’S WORLD – our dream come true

Papa’s World – Sunset in Cameron Woods.

View from our patio of the sunset

We are blessed in that we can see both the sunrise and sunset from our patio and driveway!

A cup of coffee for either one!

Our house sets so that we face North and South –

So the sun rises from the right as you stand on the front porch – and sets to the left as you stand there.

Sunset at the end of our driveway

We knew when we selected this lot – that this is what we would have as we stood in the road

before we put our down payment on the lot at 2:30 in the afternoon.

With the tree line in the back is protected and not cut down – this made shade for the back yard-

while the front porch all day long would have shade.

That is what I wanted most – a place to sit and talk to people as they walked by.

View at the sunset with the area for new construction cleared off.

The day we visited the model – this lot became available after someone withdrew their downpayment.

It was just meant to be as we had no idea what this development looked like –

and we had just been to visit a condo some 4 miles away.

Five minutes into the tour of the model – Sherry was sold!

And a plus was we were ten minutes to the sand and water!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World and our new home in Cameron Woods, Ocean Isle Beach, N.C.

PAPA’S WORLD – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – we decided to celebrate an early Valentine’s day with dinner at Bricklanding, N.C.

Bricklanding golf course – pro shop and restaurant.

We were told that they have specials occasionally on Friday evenings –

but you MUST make reservations.

And it is buffet style for $25.00 and is themed.

This time it was Italian and it lived up to my expectations.

The meal includes deserts – ice tea – coffee.

There is also a bar if you want other drinks!

On the patio looking down the first fairway – with water on the right and down by the green water on the left!

We are going to come back here and golf as it is only fifteen minutes from our home.

I am told three of the holes run along this waterway and then the course crosses the street.

They also said they shut down last year and redid all the greens!

Looking back at the eighteenth fairway and the sunset.

They have two other themed buffet dinners that II know about –

Prime rib is one and Fish is the other.

Sherry standing on the patio deck just before we left.
Hole number eighteen green.
Time to leave drive into the sunset

We will go back again although neither one of us will be able to eat $25.00 worth –

but it was fun sitting there overlooking the course and waterways.

We got to pick and choose on the buffet and salad bar –

the help was very friendly and just getting out and to a scene such as this was worth it!

Driving home into the sunset

PAPA’S WORLD – BRICK LANDING GOLF COURSE

Papa’s World – Cameron Woods Community – sunsets – turkeys – neighbors – a place we love.

Welcome to CAMERON WOODS – OCEAN ISLE BEACH, N.C. 28469

Sitting off Old Georgetown road – just past the back entrance to Ocean Ridge Plantation –

sits a brand new community – about four years old.

Amongst the tall N.C. pine trees and the live oaks.

It is a gated community – and will be somewhere in the neighborhood of 150 homes when completed.

The last phase is set to be started with the roads and infrastructure have been completed in half of it.

Sunset in Cameron Woods from our back patio.

Beyond these woods will be the final construction – there are no roads in there yet except one access road – and a very large pond – although all the trees have been cleared.

To the right of this – that section has paved roads and infrastructure!

It is to the far right that the roads are in – and another beautiful sunset!

We are getting to know the neighbors – as they move in.

Our close friends Steve and Diane are actually from back in WNY and know our old stomping

grounds there.

We have abundant wildlife here – turkeys – deer – raccoons – gators – and some say a bobcat.
It is at the end of this street where the final phase of construction is!

If the sky is somewhat clear – and most times it is – we can see the sunset from the end of the driveway

to the back patio each night – and then do stargazing – as the view is clear.

View of the beginning of sunset over our home.

In the mornings from the opposite view here – we see the sunrises!

So we have the perfect sunrise and sunsets each day and night!

SUNSET FROM OUR FRONT EDGE OF THE DRIVEWAY!

Thanks for reading Papa’s World – there are a lot of lots left to build on –

COME ON IN – we would love to meet new residents!

CAMERON WOODS – OCEAN ISLE BEACH, N.C.

Four plus miles to OIB and seven-plus miles to SUNSET BEACH!

Papa’s World – Viewing the sunset at SUNSET BEACH – in the windy cold!

SUNSET BEACH, N.C.

Just a little over a month later from our New Years Eve beach gathering and toast to 2021

We once again were back to see the sunset – only it was windy and cold –

far from the 65 degrees of NYE!

The approaching sunset peeking through the trees!
Papa – Diane and Sherry

We first parked and walked to the end of the street – here the last of the end of the houses –

and this then begins Bird Island – marshland protected and wide-open beach.

Our neighbor Diane

The tide was going out!

Here you see the last of the houses on the marsh and bayside – with the tide going out – This is the end of Sunset Beach and the beginning of Bird Island.
Sun setting – time to go to the beach.
This is where we gathered for NYE and drank a toast to 2021!
The pier and people walking the beach.
Sherry – braving the wind chill – it was cold.

As we looked out on the ocean – to think we can do this every night if we want to –

and there still is Ocean Isle Beach – living our dream.

One final look before we returned home – Sunset at SUNSET BEACH, N.C.

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – New Year’s Eve – continued on Sunset Beach, N.C.

Papa – Buck – Jim – all together – over 100 years of friendship.

We gathered on Sunset beach – to one see the sunset and two to drink a toast to a new year!

These are my oldest friends – we have been together for a very long time –

Jim and I played softball together around 1978.

Sherry and I were neighbors with Buck and Cindy in 1988! But knew them from before.

Meeting our neighbors on Sunset Beach

Kathy – our next-door neighbor who gathers up our packages while we are gone –

Diane and Steve – who live three houses from us are from back in WNY where we lived!

We decided to do something as a group as our other friends came to stay for a long weekend.

The reason for the name “SUNSET BEACH”!

When we got there – people had been in the water – too cold for me – but it still was around 65 degrees out!

Diane and Steve – who live three doors up from us – were the very first people we met in building.

We found we had in common where we had lived prior to 1999!

They were from WNY as we were and now had their winter home in Cameron Woods –

and a summer cottage on Rushford lake – just a few miles from where we lived!

So we four have become friends in our new community –

walking in the mornings and watching the Buffalo Bills games together as they are big fans.

Kathy is our next-door neighbor – single and whenever we are away – and packages arrive – will keep them for us until we return.
Good question! LOL
About to celebrate the sunset and a new year!
Sherry and Jimmy

It was a fun time – friends and neighbors – new friends and old friends.

A time to get together – laugh and count our blessings.

A time to throw out the old and bring in the new.

PAPA’S WORLD – 2022 – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog SUNSET BEACH, N.C.

Papa’s World – Sunset Beach, N.C. a day on the beach with friends – sun – sand and surf!

Our friends – Steve and Elaine Starks – true friends who appreciate you for who you are!

We have known them since our volleyball days back in the mid to late “80’s.

We have vactioned with them and their children – shared meals and presents.

Moments in time of destress and family passings.

TRUE FRIENDS all these years and now they have come to vaction in our new home.

Coming in from cooling off in the ocean.

We planed a beach week – golfing day – eating out for seafood and now – minature golf –

as their son and daughter in law along with grandbaby – join us.

It has been a wonderful time rehashing old stories and listening to new news fom back home.

They are from Portville N.Y. as were we before moving to NVA and now N.C.

They visited us in NVA and now here.

We took a little five and half mile walk on the beach with them!

One of the things they agreed to do with us was walk to what is known as the KINDRED SPIRIT mailbox

that is installed about 1.4 miles down the Sunset Beach and known as BIRD ISLAND!

It was installed there going on five decades ago – by a peace loving hippie couple.

In that mailbox are journals to wrtie your thoughts.

These journals are considered historic essays – thoughts and from all types of people and currently are in a musuem.

SUNSET BEACH is listed as a top ten beach in the country!

It is very wide when the tide is out – and rather calm – hard packed sand for easy walking!

The water was a balmy 82 degrees in mid September!

Now – the tourist season is mostly over – kids back in school – college kids gone so business scale back.

But – the beach remains the same – we almost have it all to ourselves!

Papa’s World – Walking with friends – Sunset on Sunset Beach – water was 82 degrees!

The pier and setting sun on Sunset Beach – N.C.

We decided to go to the beach early evening – late afternoon – to walk the surf!

Our friends – Steve and Elaine – came to visit for the week.

They are from back in WNY where we lived before moving to NVA!

The very first thing we saw was a young man making this sculpture

And it looked just like a cement mound with seashells in it!

I asked him why and he said the next day was his three year anniversary and he made it for his wife!

He said he had never done anything like this before and in the middle was a heart made out of black shells!

He had placed it just above the high tide line – hoping it would stay!

He did a really good job and I wondered who had collected all the shells for him?

We continued on our way – and the water temp was a warm 82 degrees!

Sherry – Steve and Elaine

We go back to the mid to late ’80’s when we lived in Portville NY.

We were there when they had the first of two children – a boy and later a girl. Josh and Brianne.

We first met them when we were rounding out our co-ed volleyball team – 16 teams in the league.

And it was not your average back yard volleyball.

If not being very watchful – you could get a broken nose!

It was competive and several teams played in weekend tournaments!

They came to visit for the week and their son and wife will also come down from Lynchburg , Va.

We are playing golf Friday afternoon with the McBrides as they know them from our neighbors in Portville!

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.com

Papa’s World – sunsets in Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

We are so fortunate – not only do we get beautiful sun rises – but the sunsets at night are just as beautiful!

Because we are on a major curve to the ocean – if you look at a global map – from below Myrtle Beach up to Wilmington N.C. – we are constanlty getting clouds and winds from the ocean – coming in from the sunrises and then at night coming in from the sunsets.

They say because of that curve – hurricanes usually by pass this area and head for the tip of Wilmington and then onto the outer banks!

Now – if there is a high pressure off shore -then that will direct the storm into the mainland – but that does not happen often.

Beautiful sky from the west.

And the lightening storms mostly come from over the ocean some three miles away! Thunder and rain!

Never tried this but think it to be funny!!! Might be my go to in the store next time! LOL!

With the sunset behind us – the ocean clouds in front of us!
The ocean clouds to the East – our neighbors house who has not closed – and the last foundation close to us.

GOODNIGHT FROM OUR HOME AT NIGHT!
PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – a morning in the new neighborhood – Cameron Woods.

Morning starts for me with that fresh cup of coffee.

Each morning – as the dawn lights the sky – I tend to wander outside to the driveway – and look both East and West.

The Sun rising – clouds from the ocean – racing across the sky.

And when I trun around – the West sky comes into view.

Again – the clouds coming in from the NW from the Ocean – racing across the sky.

We get both views from the front of the house – it is quiet until the workers start showing up.

Beyond this view is where the new phase is being developed with infrastructure.

Once it is completed on our side – there will be no more constuction noises from this neighborhood.

The contrast at dawn is beautiful.

We walk in late afternoon here – after most have left.

The pond is in this direction and has a resident gator.

Looking toward the back yard – someday I would like to put a outdoor shower along this side of the house.

A place for the little ones and company to wash the sand off – most likely toward the back.

Looking East over the next door house – clouds from the ocean rolling across the sky.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – just a little sight of early morning – standing in my driveway.

Papa’s World – Walking the beach in the chilly – windy – air – living life!

North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

It has a way of pulling you – the sound – the air – and the chill!

We try to walk the beach every day – except during the rain!

I bundle up – because I do get cold easily!

They told me I would after I had my heart attack some 7 1/2 years ago.

And – that is true – I really do not like being cold!

Papa – neck warmer – ear muffs – gloves – warm jacket – I detest wearing hats!

So – this winter – I will take the chill – some rain – actually a lot of rain –

and some wind – but – I dress warm and toasty!

Papa walking the beach – staying warm!

I have found – NO SNOW – NO ICE – can make up for that chilly air and wind-

as long as I am warm I can and do walk!

Sherry – taking a picture of a deserted beach – she does not get as cold as I do.

Sometimes we are the only ones out there!

We will try it until the wind drives us off –

Sand blowing in ones face and eyes – well – I can do without that!

But then the Sun comes out – and those warming rays make all the difference!

Papa’s World – the first household items that we could carry – and she is named Polly – The Pelican!

Good day everyone!

We have been furniture hunting – the whole house – as we have almost nothing!

We sold it all – 98 % of it – to the folks who bought our home!

While it has been somewhat stressful for my wife –

and me being the one who does not like to shop-

I AM LOVING THIS!

Another beautiful sun rise!

Yes – that is right! When we usually go shopping – I tend to find a place –

and sit and watch people!

Maybe with a cup of coffee or a bottle of water.

I find people interesting.

You can almost tell who they are by just observing!

So – here I am – looking at furniture – and I actually like doing this!

That is completely out of norm for me.

And has turned very stressful for my wife.

But -as of this writing with hoping 3 1/2 months to go to closing

The middle of May – I can say we have now completed 95 % of what we need!

We have one sun room to finish and some end tables!

There – right in the middle opposite the front door is the sun room!

We have ended up buying from three different stores –

with what will be three different deliveries!

And I still have to get our items we have in storage delivered to N.C.!

But – we were able to hand carry three items back to the car and then back to the Condo – in Ocean Keyes!

One table lamp – one floor lamp and meet POLLY THE PELICAN!

Our theme is going to be somewhat beach like –

since we will be only four miles to Ocean Isle Beach and six miles to Sunset Beach!

All in N.C. between Calabash and Shallotte.

We contacted the three little ones and they – ( CASSIDY) came up with the name for the Pelican.

You see – there was a smaller version already in the condo-

and I had told them I named it RALPH! LOL

They thought that to be funny!

THank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – looking out to the lake from inside the condo – Lanai!

When I first saw this Condo by accident on the internet –

I was drawn to the view!

I said to Sherry – “How would you like to look at this everyday”?

That is the moment we decided to make our home for five months

in North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

We had never had a thought to come here!

Every morning as I sit and work on my blog –

as it gets lighter outside –

I glance to my left and see this!

The early morning sunrise right outside the two sliding doors

off the living room.

And – in the master bedroom – through the sliding door

she also has this same view as the Lanai is screened in

and we are the top condo in a four story building

with two elevators twenty feet from our front door!

We can sit out on the Lanai or from the couches in the living room!

This lake is 1/2 mile long and is full of water fowl!

My office for my blog!

I can sit and watch it all unfold before my very eyes!

We have extended our stay – from the two months to five months.

And – maybe even longer!

As of now – we are looking at places to rent or buy or build!

We love living here – but there are two major drawbacks.

One – we need more storage if we were to move here.

Two – we need a garage for our car –

the hot sun down here can do a number on it!

Everyday we walk by this – still inside the gated community!

There are six different pools here and we can use them all.

There are work out areas with weighted machines

and exercise equipment for our use.

And in 6/10’s of a mile- we are on the beach!

Our beach access point

We walk to the beach almost every day

and then we walk on the beach

to get our three plus miles in!

We can hear the surf – from our Lanai!

We have searched this area –

but very little compares to this!

We are just going to enjoy what time we have left here in Ocean Keyes

North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

Looking to the outside from the inside of our Condo!

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 – 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!

Papas World – a little bit of peace and quiet!

We are now gone from our home –

and have set up a base camp

at our youngest daughters & husbands home!

It is a rather large neighborhood – with large homesites

and really spread out!

Lots and lots of flowers – landscaped -fenced in.

Beautiful sunrise and no one out and about!

My spot now to sip my coffee in the morning – the Sun rises from the rear

The gate to the back yard – kids playing – riding bikes – scooters

A happy place this is – also very quiet outside

you hear and see lots of birds and from behind the woods – Cows!

My coffee and my new spot to sip and watch – but – watching is difficult

as you very seldom see anyone!

The back yard patio and gazebo – two fire pits and PURPLE MARTINS!

The neighbor has a birdhouse for PURPLE MARTINS!

And you watch them fly – dive and swoop around – chasing insects!

A rainbow – with no rain – rabbits and beyond the tree line –

pasture & cows and tractor working the fields.

Peaceful noises in early evenings.

Every yard of every house is fenced in – some like these

and some with the black wrought iron fence.

All yards manicured – a couple they mow their own –

but I see landscapers here daily mowing lawns.

We have moved on –

to a quiet place with the grand kids & their parents.

Laughter and love – peace of mind

peace in the heart

and peace in the soul!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

and the grand kids – well they capture my heart.
