Papa’s World – Hiking through Vareen Memorial Gardens with family!

Sherry Ella Sarah Papa

We had a fine day to be out and about – so we decided to show them some nature

As they are all about the outdoors!

We went back to Vareen Memorial Gardens –

just before you cross the state line into N.C. in Little River S.C.

Ella Sarah Sherry Sarah is growing up so fast – at 14 she is catching up to both Sherry and Ella!

Across the marsh and over the tidal canals –

at low tide – does not look so scary when empty!

Sarah and Ella who is almost 5′ 9″ tall!

We entered the trees and brush along a sand pathway – trail.

We had been here a couple times before

bringing family to explore and see the ICW and the beauty of a pristine nature walk.

The girls loved this as did Debby who is all about the outdoors and hiking!

We soon entered the trees and bush growth

it was shaded in here and I think would be welcomed in the S.C. heat of Summer!

One last walkway before entering the pine and cypress trees!

The path is marked – and branches off in all directions!

Respite from the hot sun!

A shaded walk – can be a couple miles if you select the right path

We choose the shorter route – we had some more places to show them!

WE WILL BE BACK someday we told them!

The sand path through the trees!

Papa’s World – Cherry Grove – nature walk!

The sign to the entrance of the nature preserve

After a attempt to walk the beach –

the wind was too strong and we opted to try the more

protected walk on the marsh!

The beginning of the trail

Once we got in among the brush and trees

we were somewhat protected from the wind

and the Sun was warm!

Walkway above the marsh and tidal pathways

We could observe the water fowl – the fish and crabs!

The crabs were burying themselves in the bottom mud!

They seemed to know we were there as they quickly buried themselves!

The walk in was on a walkway and then a path through the sand!

We were protected from the blowing wind by the shrubs and trees!
How the tide influences the marsh!

I was ever watchful for snakes and if there were gators?

But – I never saw either one!

There were many signs along the way with information on the area!

Along the way were several covered picnic areas!

Thinking that when family visits –

this would be a good day outing –

first walking the undeveloped beach

and then into the nature reserve and picnic!

Sherry approaching one of the covered picnic areas!

I think this would be a awesome place for a family pcnic!

View of the marsh and channel along with some waterfront houses!

If we had not walked the beach – you would not known –

just how windy it was!

We could see waterfront houses across the channel and marsh!

It was a very nice walk – and we know that there is another nature walk

that we will someday explore!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World!

Papa’s World – Martin Luther King Jr. memorial- D.C.

Our last tour of this day –

The memorial of Martin Luther King Jr.

next to the tidal basin

Across from the Jefferson Memorial.

The Jefferson Memorial

I could not help but wonder –

if every man is created equal

then why ( economics) were there slaves !

Sherry – Jo and Paul

The statue is gazing across the basin as if to ask that very question.

No truer words spoken

Today we think back knowing what we know-

Yet – generations have come and gone

and that rancor still remains

Paul and Jo

“I took a picture of one of the sayings – I could not help myself in walking around and taking a picture of each ” Paul Peterson

This was our first visit here

I found it profound and troubling at the same time

Jo and Paul

Profound that it took so long

Troubling because 400 years later –

it still exists .

Today – twitter seems to dominate
and those that follow are as sheep
Today I stand with reason
I stand with comprehension
I wield my vote
and I communicate in church
with my faith
Sherry and Jo
Pondering what they see

Today –

we must not let those in power move us backward

with fear and hateful words

but reflect on our teachings

from those of a much kinder generation

Thank you for letting me share this with you

Jo and Paul have now crossed off

yet another

and Sherry and I the same
