Papa’s World – Over the years – our life together.

Barb (GIGI) Debbie (sister) Sherry Papa 8-31-2004

Somewhere in Denmark – Norway or Sweden – on our 1400-mile excursion – by bus – for 10 plus days.

It was a dream for everyone to go to where Barb’s mother and father were born.

We only twice stayed in a hotel for more than one day!

We saw so many beautiful things and places and even loaded the bus onto a huge ferry

and made our way down or up the fiords – with hundreds of other people.

The most exotic thing for me to eat was Reindeer!

The old buildings are hundreds of years old – the rune stones –

Sherry and I went off by ourselves and toured old town Stockholm and then the new city.

Eating big breakfasts is the major meal of the day!

A trip we have in memories and locked away in our minds.

In a garden in the middle of Sarasota, Florida

A trip we made to visit our friend Ginger at her condo on the waterfront.

A place we considered retiring to but for the distance away – it was a possibility!

Someday we hope to return and explore more.

Shares a toast with her sister Debbie in the Villages, Florida.

Before my brother passed away – we spent winters with him at his home in The Villages.

It was a unique time in our lives – riding the golf cart everywhere – playing golf with him.

A time that I shall always associate with Roger – my brother and how we were the only ones left.

The Villages – I also could have lived in – but HAPPY HOUR came too early and too long! LOL

Papa’s World – Bald Head Island – beach and departure – one last time on the beach.

Sherry – Diane and Steve

There was hardly anyone here on the beach – in the distance, we could see a few people –

And we watched the fishing boats offshore – some dozen of them –

Soon – we spotted the Dolphins – two pods – they seemed oh so close to the edge of the water.

Diane and Sherry – the only sound was that of the surf.
My view of a quiet lunch sitting on a deserted beach.

Soon – our little tour would be over – I would try to get a golf car where everyone is sitting forward!

It was hard to see as you were always looking backwards –

And – pick up a map at the ferry depot.

You can get mixed up really easily and end up in dead ends!

Diane and Sherry – at the edge of the water.
A bite to eat – advice – on Wednesdays – only one place is open to grab lunch – other days – more places are open.

Papa’s World – BALD HEAD ISLAND – part THREE!

BEACH ACCESS – one of the dozens across the island.

Sherry – Diane and Steve – the sound of the surf is the only sound.

We found every place we stopped and walked onto the beach to be like these pictures!

Hardly anyone around to be seen!

We could see a dozen fishing ships and Dolphins from the beach.

The island is full of these beach access’s with places to park your golf cart.

BALD HEAD ISLAND also has a marsh side and a boat launch!

We stopped many times to wander and sightsee!

Plenty of time to sit and reflect on our blessing of life!

Thanks for reading Papa’s World – part four will continue the tour of BALD HEAD ISLAND!

Papa’s World – Lake Tahoe adventure continues

Cindy and Sherry

Mt. Rose ski slopes – 8250 feet – a little chilly but refreshing.

Cindy – me – Buck

As our adventure starts – we decided that we would completely

drive the whole way around Lake Tahoe

we ended up driving 180 miles that day !

Mt. Rose – 8250 feet high
Our first sight of Lake Tahoe

although it looks like trees they are holding up !
Lake Tahoe
Clear waters
Swimmers
Swimmers snorkeling

We would pull off road and take pictures – it was so beautiful

The water is so clear you have 100 feet visibility !

However – the average temperature of the water is

42 degrees low and 64 high – too cold for me !

However – we read where it never freezes over

The warm water at the bottom always rises to the top

preventing it freezing !

Cindy and Buck

I hope you enjoyed this part of our adventure –

Oh – just another little tidbit

The average SNOW FALL at the Lake Tahoe area

420 inches !

Way too much for me

and the last of the snow melted in JULY !

Cindy and Sherry
