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!

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!

Papas World – some say I am not normal – & I know that!

Ever since I can remember –

the first bird chirping –

My bedroom as I got older after my older brother

left for college –

Was right in the front of the house –

Facing East and those first rays of the Sun.

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE !

I have always awoken either before those first rays

or shortly after!

I am up early each and every day –

first cup of coffee

BEFORE the morning paper hits the pavement!

And it is that way even if I force myself

To stay up and watch the BALL DROP for NEW YEARS!

My wife and I just had this conversation

About how over the years – we use to party –

Now it is CAN WE STAY AWAKE !

And – I am good with 7 to 71/2 hours of sleep –

BUT – it has to be when I am tired ( 8 to 8:30 PM. )

If I go to bed then – I SLEEP – solid –

seems in my later years –

I always wake up once to go to the bathroom! LOL

But – if I stay up –

I wake up the same time each day –

and then I feel terrible the rest of the day!

It’s like I have a internal clock

( I do not use a alarm clock)

If you tell me you want up at a certain time

I WILL WAKE YOU UP with NO alarm clock!

I do not know how that works – but it does for me!

THIS IS ME!
LOL

My wife is opposite ( we do attract each other)

She likes to stay up later – somewhere around 10 to 11:30 PM.

She will wake up from 5 to 6 am. and read her phone –

I think it is her phone –

She is the lead in our book club from church

and she reads the books on line –

BUT – after a half hour or so – SOUND ASLEEP AGAIN! LOL

7:30 to 8:00 AM. she is up and ready to go-

Me – I have done all my face book – email – and my writing

read the entire paper front to back

and had two cups of coffee & ready for shower!

Morning Sunrise
I get to see this
each and every morning

Life has it’s own schedule for everyone

mine happens to be EARLY

And I can remember those mornings back to my childhood

That bedroom not only faced East – but had huge maple trees

with lots of birds – all chirping with the first rays of Sunshine.

There was the main highway as we lived on the main street of a small town

In NWPA.

In the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains

I could hear the trucks going by –

and behind the house the railway tracks

The ” Click – Click ” as the wheels of the train as it passes

Lulled me to sleep each night!

Opposites attract

Yes – I am up at the crack of dawn –

The dawn gets lighter

That is just who I am –

I like my morning solitude

My quiet time – my time to write – think and read.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World
