Papa’s World – walking home from the beach through Ocean Keyes – part three!

One of six pools – this one has the work out room in it and this pool is heated! A propane grill and sometimes two are at each pool area with others scattered through out the property.
Our little postal building – one of two in the Ocean Keyes that I know about – this one is a five minute walk for us. We mail out here also.
HHHHHHHHMMMMMMNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!! Not saying anything! LOL!
I told Sherry – I would like these flowering bushes in our back yard along with several Crepe Myrtles! This also is the closest pool to us – right across the parking lot and not many people use it. It also has grills and bathrooms.
Turned the corner from the postal building and heading to the stop sign and turn left for one more block. The lake is straight ahead between those buildings.
After turning left – then you walk the length of one building and turn right – the parking lot is here and building # 39 is on the right. We are on fourth floor in number 44!
The last walk in front of building 39. There are old – old growth tall pine trees and living oaks all through Ocean Keyes -I would guess well over 100 years old or twice that!
Thank you for reading PAPA’S WORLD – WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY – FAMILY MEETS FRIENDS!
The parking lot – where we park our car – we would of loved to stay here and we could have – however – there is no garage and little storage – many people have units for storage off site.
“FOUR PLEASE”!

Our home for nine months – 3944 – 3 bedroom – 2 bathroom – kitchen – dining room – living room and a very large screened in Lanai with sliding glass doors from the living room and the master bedroom.

Papa’s World – random pictures – kids – golf – and a rainbow in the fountain on the lake.

Today – I post some pictures – just random pictures – but ones I have close to my heart!
Taylor holding MorMor’s hand – in turn MorMor also holding Bode’s hand.

They adore Sherry – whom they call MorMor – Swede for Mothers Mother!

When we walk with all three – it usually is Taylor who loses out to the other two in holding her hands.

This time it was Cassidy – who with each passing day – is becoming more and more independent.

These two are coming closer and closer together as they grow up.

They are twins – but had to come early as Taylor was taking all the nutrients.

Taylor is going to be really tall – close to six foot while Cassidy will be like her mother 5’6″.

Taylor loves to ride horses – Cassidy has a variety of interests –

but will sit for hours drawing off her computer and is really good!

I thought this to be funny – it brought a smile to my face!

We moved south to find more time to golf – warmer weather and being close to our friends!

Sherry and Cindy – we have been friends with the McBrides for almost 35 years.

They moved about 25 or 26 years to the Wilmington N.C. area – and we would spend time with them once or twice a year.

Then we moved to NVA and they would do the same.

Now – we are building a new home about 40 miles away from them –

and if the weather is nice – we golf once a week with them –

always on a new course – could be on the weekend or a week day.

They can and do stay with us and we do the same with them.

If our new home is not done on time and we have to give up the condo – they have offered us a place to stay.

FRIENDS! GOOD TIMES! LAUGHS!

This is what we have wanted to do for a very long time – it was too expensive in NVA and down here so many courses to choose from.

We both have a love to golf – one of Sherry’s highlights in golfing came with the day she broke 50 –

and it was a day she was golfing with her father!

A memory she shall always carry with her on the course. Now – she beats me! LOL

The view we have almost every morning when we wake up – the master bedroom has a big glass sliding door on her side of the bed – where all she has to do each morning is open her eyes and see this.

I see it each morning also – but I always am up before the dawn – have been that way all my life.

My favorite time of the day – writing my blog – sipping my coffee and watching the sun rise –

listening to the sounds of nature and just enjoying morning time.

Now the sun shines – causing a rainbow in the mist of the water fountain!
A peaceful setting we shall miss when we leave – but we have had by the end – nine months.

A memory we shall carry forward into the new home.

You can hear the pounding surf a half mile away –

We walk there almost every day –

the water fowl – geese – ducks – mallards – swans – otter – turtles – snakes

and really huge fish we can see when we look down onto the water.

Storms blowing in and out – rain and wind – nature at its best.

It would of been nice to have lived to the left of the picture – single family homes!

But – they were way too expensive – and the condos here – not enough space and no garage.

We have a storage unit – not a lot – but enough so that it would not fit.

The town houses here besides the condo’s – were out of our price range –

plus the one we looked at – needed a lot of work.

This is a beautiful area – one I shall remember –

We were blessed to have spent time here – but it also was expensive!

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – In a little over two months – we will leave this behind – another sunrise!

We have been here since 10-1-20 – and this never gets old – the view and sunrise each day!

Building our new home – coming back to here each day – soon – it will be over!

We have until the end of June here – a total of nine months-

We never expected to be here that long – but when we decided to build

We extended the months – hoping we would be done and able to move.

We have plans in case something prevents that!

Ready to move out – put excess in a strorage unit we have three miles from our new build

and move in with friends who have offered!

We moved everything we had in NVA in storage – down here so we could grab whatever we needed.

We should be able to move it a little at a time!

We are expecting to close early June and have been told we still are on schedule!

The house is sided and the trim done on the outside – the stacked stone is done.

The roof is complete as is the electrical and plumbing.

The doors and windows are all in and this week the insulation should be done

and dry wall next week.

We are moving forward – and we have memories and pictures such as these!

We love it here – but – no garage and not enough storage space for what we have.

This area is great and we are only one half hour away.

We can visit anytime we want – there is parking by the beach.

One more view – one more sunrise.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – The Krohns come to visit North Myrtle Beach!

Marcus Papa Sherry Tammy

They all came this time – for almost a week’s stay –

Tammy and the little ones had come down for a long weekend

Now – it was Marcus time to see where we would be living!

Here we are on the ICW at Barefoot Landing!

We had met them here instead of the condo – for we knew the little ones would be hungry –

they had left NVA at 5:09 AM. and we were standing in the Parking lot at a little before noon –

Less that seven hours!

And we told them – it would be 45 minutes fewer that that at the new house!

Our goal was to keep the time traveled to less than seven hours

and for both sets of family’s it will be that!

The above picture is for both family’s as they love the tradition at Christmas time!

Taylor Bode Sherry Cassidy Tammy Marcus

We planned to have a late lunch and early dinner at the new brewery

CROOKED HAMMOCK BREWERY – that had opened up a couple weeks earlier

outdoors – and they -Marcus and Tammy loved the draft beer!

Taking a picture along the ICW Marcus and Tammy and the little ones

Family is and has been important to us – both daughters followed us to NVA.

One was married with a small child ( Maddy)

And one met her future husband in NVA.

Taylor MorMor( Sherry) & Bode

Walking to the beach – these two will one day be so tall – here she is 10 years old and he is 6 years old.

Sherry – a Swede – is 5′ 9″ tall!

Bode Taylor MorMor Cassidy – the first time walking the beach.

Papa’s World – took a little walk to the beach on my way back ran into Huey-Dewey-Louie!

Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

In this picture at the bottom of the lake – is a four story condo –

that is where we are renting until the end of June – 2021! TOP FLOOR !

We are in the middle with a full view of the lake!

There is a road way among the condo’s to the right – that is where we walk to the beach!

This would be the view only from the first floor condo – we are on the top floor.
Here you can see the map of Ocean Keyes – we are a short walk to the real estate office and once we exit on Ocean side Drive – it is two blocks to the sand and water!

We walk this area over to main street – Duffy main street seafood and many other stores.

The tennis courts and Pickle ball courts!

A short walk for us and right across the way from here is one of six pools!

There are six pools with bathrooms in this development and 780 condo units and town houses!
These are the town homes on the far side of the lake near the Hillside drive entrance.

We would of loved to buy one of these – but first there is a waiting list to buy

and second they were out of our price range!

We actually looked at one – it was well used as a second home and had to be completely redone on the inside

and did not have a view of anything other than some trees and bushes.

Walking – taking pictures – looking – where am I going? LOL
Some of the many condo buildings you walk past on the way to the Hillside Drive gated entrance!
Town homes and our condo in the far end of the lake! Top floor with the wide lanai to the left!
On my way back from the beach – just after you enter the gate from Hillside Drive –

I have named the three white ducks – for my own amusement –

HUEY DEWEY LOUIE!

They are together constantly – where one goes – so do the other two – all across the lake.

I have never seen them up on our end.

This day they were napping by the water

And within twenty feet – was the LONE SWAN!

I think this is a male as the other two will have nothing to do with it!
He too is napping!
The LONE SWAN!

I have decided to name him – for my own amusement – ” DARTH VADER”!

He cruises the lake by himself –

and when he comes near – they scatter away from him.

He is a lonely white swan.

The other two will have nothing to do with him and will chase him away!

Even he will take off and fly away from them!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – my walk back from the beach – Huey Dewey Louie and DARTH VADER!

Papa’s World – beach time with Deb – Sarah and Ella!

After unpacking – the very first thing they wanted to do after riding seven hours – “GO TO THE BEACH”!

They love the sand – the surf and the sound of the water and waves –

LETS WALK TO THE BEACH said Sherry!

So we did – the half mile walk through the neighborhood

To the gate entrance and then cross Hillside drive

Walk another block and cross Ocean Blvd. to the parking lot!

And then – you are standing on the sand – looking out to sea – looking for Dolphins!

Growing up – we would take Debby and her sister Tammy to the beach

Whenever we could for vacation.

Now – whenever they can – they take their families to the Ocean.

They are so excited – finding shells – talking – sticking their toes into the water!
We have raised them to respect nature – to be a part of it – they love the outdoors.

Early on – we taught them to respect the environment

To not litter and see the wonders of what is around them.

Walking the sand – listening to the sound – “THE BEACH”!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – ever changing life – Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach , SC – #2

When the day begins with a splash – each day break is different! Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach – SC!

This is the view I saw in the ad for this rental!

This view sold us and we jumped on it right away!

Each morning is different!

Our view of the small lake –

Water fowl flying in and out!

There are six fountains that we can see!

Each at night is lit up!

The moon and fountains light the water !

This never gets old.

I will miss this when we move into our new house.

But – we will have enjoyed it for nine months!

We are social distancing from here – in the condo!

We knew when we moved in October 1st. that we would be mostly alone-

that we would not be able to eat out –

but what we have here is the ability to walk!

Every day – we can walk different routes and still end up at the beach!

One half mile walk brings us to this! If you want information on this place – just contact us here or through my wife’s web site: http://www.sf.juiceplus.com and we will answer.

Papa’s World – our ever changing life at Ocean Keyes -North Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Our dining room – living room – double entrance to the Lanai – and the water beyond!

We first rented this for three months – not knowing where we would be.

Then in November – after six weeks of house hunting –

We decided it was just as cost effective to build!

You see – in our price range – we found a lot of houses – condo’s

But each one we liked – there had to be things done!

When you are like me – this can happen! LOL

We could do these things – but it would take time and money.

Plus – another cost was to furnish it!

We sold almost all our furniture – and you can not just hire someone

Most will put you on a list!

Playing a game while eating dinner on the Lanai!

So – we extended our time here – and found a building development

one half hour away into N.C. – close to two beaches for our walks and company

And made our selections – everything we wanted and still in our price range.

What we will be doing off and on until our house is built! Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

We will be here until the end of June!

Our house is suppose to be finished by the end of May!

That will give us time to get our stored stuff moved down here

and Sherry does what she loves to do – SHOP!

PAPA’S WORLD – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – The FIRST of many days to come!

As we have already begun our seventh decade

We have set out once again on a new chapter of our lives.

We have been together since mid 1980

and married mid 1982!

That my friends is a lasting friendship!

For she is my best friend and partner.

We arrived to this view for the next five months.

The Atlantic Ocean is .66 miles away in Myrtle Beach – North!

Just beyond the horizon you see here.

We already have been there twice in three days

and have walked the shortest route.

Here is the view from the lanai back into the living room –

dining area and kitchen.

With two bedrooms and bathroom out of sight beyond the kitchen.

The lanai is over 200 SF

and the rest of the condo is 1200 plus SF.

We have all we need – and two elevators right outside our door

We are in the top unit – no one above us

and as far as I can tell – the unit below is empty!

Guest bedroom number one –

Two twin beds and share a bathroom with the other guest bedroom!

I have been using that shower as it is a walk in!

And as you can see – the golf clubs –

they are the occupying ones in that room for now!

We do have a bar set up –

both coffee and cocktails on the lanai

and for future guests!

Guest bedroom number two

Queen size bed –

I actually like this bedroom

and if it had a king size bed

would of considered it the master

as it seems larger!

She now has her printer set up in there and her files!

She is able to take her internet business

anywhere we go!

The master – king bed with a view –

sliding door right out to the lanai!

Our own master bath and walk in closet!

Right off the living room

and comfortable bed!

Our new chapter has started

page after page

we have already eliminated areas and places.

We venture out to explore

we know our limits and expectations.

And we are having fun doing it!

The first of many dinners on the lanai.

Our first candle and cocktails!

The first sunrise over the pond.

The first night with the moon rising over the pond.

The first of many days to come!

Papa’s World – a visit on our way – Myrtle Beach Proper!

We decided to drive the beach road from North Myrtle Beach

all the way down to the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk!

We stopped – got out of the car – walked to the beach entrance!

All the way down – we passed house after house

residential living – vacation homes – second homes

beautiful beach front homes!

They look as if they have been here a long time.

I was told that because of the shape of the coast

a long half moon stretching from below Myrtle Beach

all the way North to Wilmington N.C.

Very few storms hit this part of the coast

instead are directed toward Wilmington!

It was a Sunday drive after church virtual service.

A quiet ride with no traffic and heading for Costco!

But – we had never seen the Boardwalk!

We decided to just take our time – explore a little

before going to the store.

Maybe have a light lunch

see the storied Myrtle Beach!

The residential before the boardwalk

I am glad we did this as it gave us a chance to see how people lived.

We have decided that in our future trips to Costco

we would always make this a part of the ritual

driving first to the boardwalk

walk the distance between the two piers

have lunch and enjoy without haste!

Papa’s World – Eating out – Social Distancing – being careful.

Every morning with exception to heavy cloud cover – we wake up to this!

Welcome to Papa’s World – from North Myrtle Beach – in S.C.

Where we have temporary taken up residence!

The abnormal has now become the normal!

We sold our home of 14 years in NVA.

Stayed with our daughters for over two months

packed up and came South – searching for were and what we want to do next!

Sherry – at Hickory – just down the street – keeping social distancing – staying away from crowds and wearing our masks when out.

We have searched out and found places to visit – usually once a week we venture out to eat.

Always being aware and checking them out ahead of time.

Almost all have conformed to Covid19

Spacing out tables and we choose to be there early

before the normal dinner or after the normal lunch crowd.

And if we can not do this – then we order pick up and go!

We are in our dream place – beach – warmth – things to see and do – and GOLFING!

We found this by accident – and we knew we had to try it out!

Every day we walk and include the beach in that walk.

Yes – we are doing this!

But – we still believe in and practice Social Distancing!

The wide open beach is easy to do as you get nowhere near anyone.

Walking also is no problem as we stay far away from people and they also do the same.

And as you can see in the pictures here – our time to be there – lowers the risk.

Lowering the risk – only going in when it is like this!

Again – we limit this to maybe once a week.

There is a greater risk in shopping for food – although 99.9 % of the people

honor wearing masks – after all – it is not only yourself you are protecting

but those whom you come close to!

Common sense –

NO SHOES – NO SHIRT – NO MASK – NO SERVICE!

It is not a RIGHT QUESTION

But THE RIGHT OF THE ESTABLISHMENT!

Today we live in a not normal World anymore.

The virus is real – and easy to catch.

The numbers are what overwhelms the establishements health care.

In large population centers – the volume –

critical patients – will take up bed space

leaving those with other life threatening illness

no place to go – as the ICU’S fill up!

COMMON SENSE!

Practicing social distance – courtesy – common sense

We are extending our stay here until the end of June

at which time we are hoping our build will be done.

Yes – we decided to build –

one half hour away into N.C.

Where we will still have this – walking the beach – social distancing.

Where we dream to be.

Papa’s World – views from the lanai – beach walking

As I was searching for a place to rent

until we decided where to live and what to buy or rent

This view caught my eye!

And I thought – this is where we should stay

and relax and think on what we want to do!

It brought forth in my mind – POSITIVE THOUGHTS!

It was as though I found a quiet place to think

a place to do research and enjoy the view!

The sound from all six fountains travel the 1/2 mile distance

down the lake to our lanai on the top floor!

At night they are all lit up!

Quiet thoughts – pleasant memories – listening and watching

seeing the water fowl on the lake

and then being able to walk the 1/2 mile to the beach entrance!

We had always dreamed of being near a beach.

Many vacations have been spent like this.

And always regretting when we had to pack up and leave.

But when I saw this listing – I knew and so did Sherry

For five months it could be ours

and we did not have to pack up and leave

and our family and friends could visit

our three bedroom – two bathroom place of solitude!

No hassles – no driving if we choose not too.

Walking to the beach or to the main street in one direction

or if we choose to Walmart and a plaza in the other direction.

Stores – restaurants – gas – lots of options all we can walk to.

And what better place to conduct your internet business

than while walking the surf on the beach!

Her business goes where we go as long as you have phone service!

http://www.sf.juiceplus.com

So we made the plan to drive down here to North Myrtle Beach

to Ocean Keyes and this condo.

We leased it for five months and we have options

we can extend the lease if it is available or find another one

in the same development or nearby.

And by the way – there are golf carts everywhere

people drive them to the beach and park them

in a special lot at each beach entrance!

Our view everyday on our three mile walk

living the life and dream to be near the beach

And it all started from this picture – which I myself have since taken

from the lanai to the beach walking!
