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 – 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 – Slowly increasing my walking distance – hit 6 1/2 miles – new high! BEACH!

Sherry went to visit her sister – so I had no car – but – that did not matter – I walked!

I decided that instead of one big walk for the day –

I would break it up and do several smaller walks

So I walked four times!

And it was a total of 6 1/2 miles!

The first picture was the beach entrance I choose – after walking .60 miles to get there!

This picture is of me after walking onto the beach.

It was a great walk and the sun came out making it warm!

I choose this entrance because I walked a new path

and it brought me to this street.

You see – every street here running West to East –

ends in a beach entrance and most have parking lots!

So I turned left – North – and headed up the beach – back to our normal entrance!

It was almost to low tide – not many people there!

Looking back the way I had just walked! Still not many people!
The beach exit I choose – I came here because to the right is a ramp and it leads to a bench to sit down on. The sand has nearly reclaimed that part- but I find it peaceful to just sit and listen to the surf and watch the people!

Plus there is a boardwalk all the way back to the parking lot-

giving you time to clean off any sand in your shoes!

One last look down the beach from where I had just walked.

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!

The view they saw from the living room!

John and Nancy live in Charleston S.C

a little over two hours away.

We have known them for years as we all were members

of Community Lutheran Church back in Sterling Va.

They moved about six months before we did

and we visited them a year ago on our return trip from Florida.

John Sherry Nancy Papa

A couple months ago – we had met half way for lunch

in Georgetown S.C.

This time – we played cards – put a puzzle together – played Rummikub

and took a walk on the beach!

Along our walk – numerous ducks and waterfowl
And the white ducks sleeping and the Swans!

It was a delighful day and night and following day

With lunch in Calabash

and a trip to see our house being built!

Papa’s World – Barefoot Landing – Crooked Hammock Brewery – Deb and girls.

We ventured out and drove to Barefoot Landing – to let Sarah shop!

That is what she wanted to do the most beside walking the beach.

Sarah – Debby – Ella discussing which shops to go to – just outside of the new Brewery – Crooked Hammock!
We had walked by here dozens of times – and were waiting for it to open up – at last – it was open!

But – we decided since it looked really busy on the inside and outside

We would pass on this trip and go to a place that was not really that busy!

So we walked around and came upon this alligator in the water – below us as we stood behind the railing.

This was my first time seeing one here.

There were signs for this and snakes –

And at first we did not think it real as it was very still until it moved!

Hoping when the little grand kids come – we can show them a “GATOR”!

Ella Debby Sarah

I actually like Barefoot Landing over Broadway on the Beach

which is in Myrtle Beach Proper.

We did do some shopping – well they did – I walked in – took a look around and went back outside to find a place to sit!

Papa – checking out the “BEER GARDEN” notice all the
GARDEN TOOLS” hanging on the wall!

Sarah loved it here – her place to be – store to store!

Papa’s World – Our happy place – back from the North – walking the beach!

We had made our second trip back home to NVA!

It was cold – no snow – sunshine – seeing family –

Running errands and keeping appointments.

Arranging the clean out of our storage unit and moving it South

To Ocean Isle Beach storage.

Admiring the sunsets of NVA.

But – once again we set forth and traveled back to “HOME” in S.C.

Where we will be for a total of nine months until our new build is finished!

Sherry – videoing the surf and calmness of the Ocean!

Back to our HAPPY PLACE as Sherry calls it!

THE BEACH where we try to walk every day.

SUN- SAND – WATER – life is good.

Looking toward North Myrtle Beach!

We had always talked of one day being able to walk the beach every day!

I never thought we could make that happen.

But – then the stock market slid South last March –

Taking 30 % or our 401K with it!

On the positive side – our house gained in value!

We discussed it and decided now was the time to cash in on the home value!

We started the process and with 24 hours sold our dream home.

For way over the asking price and most of the furnishings!

We were now Vagabonds!

Free to go where ever we wanted to.

First for three months we would stay with the daughters – helping out!

Then we would head South where it is warmer and no SNOW!

And by chance we ended up here – in Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach!

Today – we are building some sixteen miles away

In Ocean Isle Beach – West of the ICW!

Sherry walking to the water’s edge.

Where a short ten minute or so drive – we can walk the beach!

Healthy living – eating ( I love Kale) and walking three miles a day –

in the sand – warm – listening to the sound of the waves!

All because of the stock market slide a year ago!

Papa and Sherry – our HAPPY PLACE!

Papa’s World – Bode – will you walk with me? Twins – Blue glasses and desks.

He quietly came down the carpeted stairs –

and walked softly over to me where I was writing my blog.

Bode – six years old – our only boy – five grand daughters!

“How many sleeps are left Papa – before you go away”? he asked.

You see – every morning when we stay with them – before 6 am. down he comes.

“Will you walk to the bus stop with me Papa”?

He started a week ago going to actual school twice a week.

Three days at home virtual learning!

Bode – walking to the bus stop with Papa – MorMor and Daddy!

Two sleeps I answered and yes I will walk with you!

” I LOVE YOU PAPA”!

The twins – Cassidy and Taylor – have been in virtual learning the entire time

Making the choice not to go back to school –

They are thriving and doing really well!

Cassidy and Taylor – twins – ten years old – at Taylor’s desk in the basement near our room.

They both are in the basement only in different rooms –

they help each other out – Cassidy will always go to Taylor if she does not understand!

I had no idea what the glasses were for – but was told –

“They are BLUE GLASSES Papa – to protect your eyes from the screen on the chrome book”!

WOW – they look so old in them!

Bode – leading the way to the bus stop – love his back pack!

He told us he liked school – does not know how many are in his class –

Does not know how many boys or how many girls are in his class!

” But Papa , I am the fastest one in my class”!

BODE RUNNING TO THE BUS STOP – I UNDERSTAND WHY HE IS THE FASTEST!

Papa’s World – family time walking and playing a game!

Sarah Ella Papa Maddy Mike Debby

We decided before a late lunch to walk the river trail in Lynchburg Va.

Ella Sarah Sherry

We had time to kill before eating a late lunch –

besides – Maddy wanted to get out into the open and walk

as she loves to hike even by herself!

Once I start a pace – I just seem to walk – that is just who I am.
Debby Ella Mike Papa Sherry Sarah Maddy

After a couple miles we made it to the turn around

where this was as far as we would go even though it continued!

It was time to jump – act wild – and be funny!

Before heading back to the hotel and have a serious game of RUMMIKUB!

Maddy Sarah Sherry Ella Debby Mike

I was called over to help Ella out – they told me to stay away after I helped her! LOL

Papa’s World – show a little LOVE!

We went to Lynchburg Va. to watch our grand daughter play soccer.

Our oldest daughter – her husband and the three grand daughters

all were there – the next day we went for a walk along the river.

Mike Sarah ( youngest) Maddy ( oldest – college soccer) Ella ( senior – college soccer in the Fall)

We watched the game Friday night in the rain – Maddy scored a goal

And the next day – after her practice – went for a walk along the river.

Sarah ( 5’7″) Ella ( 5′ 8 1/2″) Maddy ( 5′ 6″) Sherry ( 5′ 9″)

The girls are tall – Sarah seems like she will be the tallest as she is only 14.

But – when we were home at our other daughters house-

Taylor who is only ten years old – is already 5′ 1/2″ tall!

I think she will be the tallest along with Bode.

Our walk lasted a couple hours

as we were going for a late lunch and a early dinner

Debby ( Mom) already shorter than her daughters.

We walked – a fun walk – a lot of laughter!

Maddy Sarah Ella

It was a fun afternoon – a break from the rain – warm enough when walking

to enjoy the time together.

LOVE!

Debby Mike Papa Sherry Sarah Maddy Ella

Thank you for reading Papa’s World!

LOVE!

Our three oldest grand daughters!
