Papa’s World – Spring has Sprung – the Beach got busy – and they are in the water!

Here is our before 9:am. early morning walk – a little more crowed but nothing not expected! Looking South to North Myrtle Beach from where we enter the access to the beach.
From the beach access looking toward Cherry Grove – a few more people – but not a lot!

But – this is the beginning of the week for Spring Breakers –

and we noticed traffic getting heavey.

We have found our way around and avoid the high traffic on rte. 17!

We take the side streets as far as we can – and one side street takes up to where we can shop!

Now – in the afternoon we decided to do a couple hours of a beach day – taking and carrying our chairs to the beach. Here is the same view looking toward North Myrtle Beach – a lot more people and a lot of people in the water. But we still had our own space – no one within thirty feet of us!
Here is the same view in the afternoon looking toward Cherry Grove! And – it will get more crowed as Spring turns into Summer with vacations! We are in the open space and avoid large gatherings which happen mostly toward North Myrtle Beach town center. A lot of young H.S. and college students gather on the beach there in a large group. You just avoid them as they will do what they do regardless!

Being here is still our dream – we will come back often as we like it here –

but also where we are moving too – no traffic – country quiet – we can walk –

and still be in access to the other two beaches!

The beach here is very wide – I have been told it is the widest on the Grand Strand!

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – decided to visit the other beach near the new house – SUNSET BEACH! N.C.

The pier in the distance – we went in and grab something to eat and just sat and enjoyed the view!

We knew Ocean Isle Beach was a eight minute drive from the new house- without heavy traffic.

Now – it was time to see just how far the other beach – Sunset Beach – was from the new house.

So – we drove and it was 13 minutes!

About five minutes longer in no traffic!

So – there you are – two beaches to choose from – and if we want – we can go back to NMB –

some 30 minutes away – with no traffic.

We checked out the parking as we understand that in the busy part – this could determine where we go!

They have pay parking – which you can pay a set price for the year –

and – like the other beach – off the road parking –

but we were told to be careful on that – if you do not do it right –

like blocking the bike path or sidewalk –

you will get a fine!

The other direction on Sunset Beach which we were told was voted one of the top ten beaches in the country! And it really is nice – time will tell if we like it more that either of the other two beaches!

It was a very windy day on the sand – so we decided not to walk the beach –

but rather see where we can walk among the streets and houses.

We did find a path to walk – while not going on the sand –

and could see we could easily get our three mile walk in!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World!

Papa's World – Traveling the highway – off the beaten path

We went South to Virginia Beach for a surprise birthday party –

’95 has a new express lane –

toll – opened up in the last year –

Where it merges causes a major back up for miles and miles

bumper to bumper –

four lane – MILES !

going perhaps five miles a hour !

GOOD MORNING

On our return trip – I told Sherry – no more –

I am not going to get into that mess –

I AM TAKING ROUTE 17 all the way home !

I checked Map Quest – only eight miles different –

slower speed limits – so one hour difference –

Now factor in the stop and go traffic from Fredericksburg to Potomac Mills

you lose

thirty to forty five minutes –

ROUTE 17 here I come !

HOW I FELT

What a peaceful ride – hardly any traffic –

speed limit – high of 60 posted –

35 through towns –

Almost all four lane roads through the countryside!

OUR VIEW

This picture is exactly as we saw it mile after mile –

Countryside for most part flat –

Green and well kept farms and homes.

Tappahannock

A beautiful town along the river – Tappahannock Va.

Note to myself –

Have to go back sometime to check this out !

Tappahannock

We followed this river –

the RAPPAHANNOCK for miles –

A really nice area.

Countryside along route 17 in Virginia

The countryside along 17 reminds me of back home in SWNY & NWPA

You could do this almost the entire trip
and not see much traffic!

I will almost always take this way when I head South –

At least to get below Fredericksburg –

It made for a great attitude

I hope this helps you out when you travel South through Virginia –

Even in stormy weather it is better –
