Papa’s World – Jennie and Gerhard – morning walk

As the sun rises – breakfast and then a walk

Jennie and Gerhard – parents of our son in law Marcus.

We started the day with a sun rise and breakfast

and then set out to walk

we usually do 2 3/4 to 3 miles every day!

Walking the beach

We chose this condo for the view it offered

and being a 1/2 mile walk to get on the beach

where we walk 1 1/2 miles before heading back.

Fishermen – up and down the beach

There is hardly any one on the beach in the mornings.

Fishermen – joggers and walkers like us!

It makes for a pleasant walk

and not worrying about social distancing!

For the most part – in the open beach air

we do not wear our masks

unless we come across a whole bunch of people!

Then you try to walk around them at a distance!

Jenny looking for shells!

Walking in the surf – the water was warm

Quiet time – feeling the water and listening to the waves.

The beach here is very wide and firm

not many large shells and have seen no sand crabs!

Sherry working on her phone with a beach as her office!

Papa’s World – on the beach Jennie and Gerhard

Papa Gerhard Jennie

Our son in laws parents came to visit us!

And – they love the beach – well Jennie does! LOL

First they saw the breaking of day from the lanai!
As the sky lightened up – you can still see I think Mars!
Then the SUNRISE as we sipped coffee – it would be a fine beach day!

We talked and talked and finally drove down the 1/2 mile and parked

we did not want to carry all the chairs and coolers

Gerhard walking the beach
Jennie – who loves the beach – mesmerized by the waves.

We spent a couple hours – sitting – walking – sipping some drinks

The weather was warm – 78 degrees – the water 75 degrees!

Castles in the sand left by someone
Hundreds of birds

This is North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

and is really wide when the tide goes out!

It got a wee bit cloudy – enough to cut the sun bearing down on you!

Papa’s World – Flowers of Barefoot landing – S.C.

One of our places we like to wander about

in North Myrtle Beach S.C.

Is a place called Barefoot Landing

full of shops – boardwalks – small lakes –

places to eat – drinks to be had

music – outdoor activities

and FLOWERS!

Everything in mid October is blooming!
The colors are just beautiful!

It takes me back to my childhood – Spring – Summer

in NWPA!

Mild climate then and flowers blooming!

Flowering bush – and potted trees!

Barefoot Landing? Well almost – sitting enjoying the sights and sounds!

Sherry – mid October and the decorations are out!

This tine of year I have always favored

crisp air – decorations – Fall is here!

But the beauty of Summer remains!
Fall decorations from Summer past
The noise of a water fountain – solitude of quiet thinking!
The beauty of Sun flowers – hay and pumpkins!
Reds – greens fading to yellow

While walking around while the ladies shopped

I could not help but snap some pictures

we loved flowers at our house

each year they would come back

colors of Spring into Summer and Fall

Social distancing at Barefoot Landing

Papa’s World – morning walking – making a loop

This is where it all begins each morning.

Sunrise – a cup of coffee

the stillness of nature

and – when we are dressed early

out the door and down the elevator

to begin our walking loop

of three plus miles!

We had excellent trails where we lived

some 18 miles

here we have discovered numerous ways to walk

and they all end up taking us to the Ocean and Beach!

We have managed to get at least a mile of beach walking

incorporated into our three mile walk.

This walk was 3.36 miles!

And once on the beach – we can go in either direction.

We have found routes in both directions!

I love walking in the early mornings.

And as you can see – it is nearly deserted!

Walking early after I have had my coffee –

listening to the early morning sounds

and the waves lapping against the shoreline!

Once again – the walk on the beach

leaving to start back home

that part of the walk over

One final moment – one final glimpse

only to be repeated the next day.

Papa’s World – Visiting Georgetown SC with friends

John – Sherry – Nancy – Papa. on the docks of Georgetown.

This was a first visit – really had never heard of it!

And it is quaint – historic and fun to walk around.

The streets are over hung with large living Oak trees

they form a canopy over the side streets!

A view from the harbor toward the side streets with the live Oak Trees

We had a lunch here in the BIG TUNA at THE OLD FISH HOUSE!

And I had a house salad with grilled fresh Grouper!

It was very good and tasty!

John and Nancy belonged to our church

and one year ago moved South to Mt. Plesant

just outside of Charleston SC.

They both sang in the choir and John sings opera.

Nancy and Sherry were in a group that was called “THE HENS”!

A group of 7 or 8 ladies who once a week got together

for lunch and a movie.

Now – it is down to 3 or 4 as the others relocated.

But we have stayed in touch with John and Nancy

and visited them on our way back from Florida

Just before the pandemic hit!

We have a lot of same likes and views

and can talk – we all are retired so it makes it fun and easy

to join up and visit – Georgetown was the half way point!

We spent a couple hours – wandering around after lunch

enjoying the warm mid 80’s day.

My kind of weather!

Neither one of us likes the cold.

We spoke of planning another trip

and we will visit them again at their home

and have invited them to visit us in North Myrtle Beach.

Now here is a blast from the past!

PBR – my favorite beer when we lived in Western New York!

Hard to find in the South!

Nancy and Sherry love walking the beach.

Papas World – another day – another walk – another blog!

We walk – and walk and walk.

71 years old – still walking – social distancing – getting exercise.

Between 2 and 3 .20 miles a day –

depending on weather – walking – not running

tried that and ended up hurting my legs

shins and hips!

I run too hard Sherry says.

I LITERALLY POUND THE PAVEMENT!

My focus is movement –

I will have 1000 to 2000 every morning

before my wife gets up!

I am always up by 5 am.

I move around in the mornings

I sit and write – but constantly get up –

doing things – dusting the floors –

I clean all the time – put away dishes

unload the dish washer – nothing with noise

just being busy keeps me moving.

My heart doctor said to me ” MOVE”

and I get between 8000 and 11,000 steps each day

when the weather permits walking outside!

I am a fair weather walker – I do not like to walk in the cold.

Since I had heart problems and a operation

I get really cold easily.

That is the main reason I seek out warmer weather

in the Winter time!

The self sheltering has been not easy as we miss our families.

But – we have been walking – riding bikes –

putting puzzles together ( 8 )

and reading books – I love to read –

and I have been blogging each and every day.

Walking – no hair cut – sunshine – sheltering!

Just another blog and another day in my life.

Papa’s World -MOR MOR goes to the Zoo – I couldn’t go.

There was a family outing on this past Monday –

A ride on the Metro –

a trip into D.C. –

And a long planned talked about visit – TO THE ZOO !

AAAWWWWW – GOOD MORNING !

You know that feeling when a event is about to happen –

But you can not be there to share the fun !

Well – I had a three to four hour test Monday morning –

And all the grand kids and their mothers were coming –

And MOR MOR

( Sherry – mothers mother in Swedish )

Was going to lead them into Washington and to the ZOO !

Sherry – Debby and Tammy & six grand kids on the Metro

They had talked about this all year –

as soon as all the kids were out of school !

We or they had to do it on a Monday –

So – with my test already scheduled –

I missed out on a fun trip.

Our oldest daughter Debby and Mor Mor

Debby and the three oldest girls made the trip from Lake Holiday –

early on Monday morning ( they stayed the night )

Mike – their dad – was going North to help his parents open their camp –

In the Adirondacks – Raquet Lake.

Our youngest daughter Tammy and Mor Mor

Tammy – her one day the store is not open is Monday –

brought the three little ones –

who are just as excited to be riding the Metro !

Marcus had to work.

The Six grand kids – five girls and one boy

Their plan – spend the day –

come home – have TACO MONDAY –

and talk – play into the night –

I also had the job of watching FINNY –

a love bird that belongs to Sarah –

Debby’s youngest !

We argued back and forth with TWEETS !!!! LOL

Their day at the Zoo

They kept me updated –

I got back home around 10:15 am.

FINNY was watching TV.

from his cage !

As soon as I walked in – he began

( I think it is a he )

He would chirp at me and bob around in his cage !

( Sherry ) Mor Mor & Tom ( PaPa )

I missed out on the Zoo –

but got to spend time with everyone

until I went to bed at almost 10 : 00 PM.

We have been to the Zoo numerous times since we moved here.

And all those times have been with the grand kids.

Our family in Northern Va.

I hope you enjoyed my little day blog on family fun –

I missed out but recovered for a enjoyable late afternoon and evening .

Then the next day we all took a walk around our pond – lake .
