Papa’s World – I finally took pictures of the gator in our pond where we now live!

Down at the end of this street in Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – is our pond – and home to a six foot GATOR!

I have seen it a couple times – but never all of “IT”!

We decided at near sunset – 7:30 pm. after watching the BMW golf tournament –

to take a walk down and around the pond.

Hoping we would see the GATOR!

Well – we did and it was laying on some grass and weeds about 75 feet from the edge of the pond!

The reflection of the houses on the water and right in the middle it lays!

I am guessing 5 to 7 feet long when the tail is out straight!

It never moved and in the fading light – I had to look twice to make sure!

So we walked along the path to see it at different angles! And it never moved!

I had the feeling it was watching us!

We have now seen it at different times – but never all the way out of the water.

At least I have taken a picture of it!

Papa’s World – GOOD MORNING from Cameron Woods – N.C. SUNRISE!

I opened the garage door to push out the garbage can – and this is what I walked out to!

It was a beautiful sun rise – the best I have yet to see here!

Everything was quiet – except the birds!

I went back inside and grabbed my phone to take a few pictures.

The sun comes up right there and that is where the Ocean is some three miles away.

We get really fantastic cloud formations from here and to the West.

As we learn the area driving around – we know we made the right choice to build here – when there is no construction – everything is quiet – and a lot of neighbors walk! So we are meeting people – I told Sherry we need name tags!!!!
The neighborhood bathed in a orange glow!

It will be a good year and half before they have built out – but most of that is away from us!

Each week more and more homes close – and people are moving in.

And I am surprised how easy it is to leave the Cameron Woods community and get onto the main road.

It is a good half mile stretch or 3/4 mile in both direction and is straight so you can see.

Only once have I had to sit and wait and that was only a minute of two.

PAPA’S WORLD – SUNRISE AT CAMERON WOODS – OCEAN ISLE BEACH – N.C.
PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – our morning walk in Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – Ocean Ridge!

The entrance to Cameron Woods which is part of Ocean Ridge across the highway.

In part we choose this development because it has a place to walk! Quietly – and not much traffic!

Also close to the entrance – a retaining pond – one of many in the area.
A look from the street into Cameron Woods – Ocean Ridge.

This area was supposed to be developed much like Ocean Ridge across the street –

where the BIG CAT golf courses – four of them – are located.

When the downturn came – this section discontinued development –

somehow – Realstar became involved and is developing Cameron Woods in among all the lots that were previously

sold by the main developer.

For whatever reason – no one is building on them except maybe 8 to 10 houses.

This area is like entering a national forest!

The beginning of my walk back to the house from the gate. QUIET – hardly any cars!
At the beginning a few of the less than a dozen homes that were built here.
Then you enter the forest – there are utilities here – water – sewage and electric – berms and drains and street lights with Ocean Ridge on them.
I wonder just why no one is building in these sections with many named roads turning off the main road.
Might it be all tied up in courts or someone bad mouthed the development!

Very interesting – and we have been told – they paid a lot for these properties.

We made the right choice – our development is thriving – another and last section will soon open up.

By the end of the year – our section should be completed and all sold out!

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – the back yard – Crepe Nyrtles – Oleanders – pine straw and flowers.

Water – mellon Crepe Myrtle – stone and brick border.

The tree is in line with the one in front which is a white Crepe Myrtle – we wanted color in the back.

The lanai – which is screened in – and we will be able to view the two trees from inside.

On the opposite side of the yard – another water – mellon Crepe Myrtle – opposite of the white one in the front yard.
Three Oleander bushes that should bloom next year.

This tree line is protected and will stay there. Pine straw and flowers are what I plan for this area.

It is a work in progress – planting flowers – we love to plant flowers that return each season.

Much as I did at the old house in NVA!

Perinals mixed in with the wild and pine straw.
This area I really like the contrast – wild vs. planted Oleanders and pine straw.

In my mind I picture a bird bath here and a bird feeder. And on one of those big trees – one of those faces –

with eyes and nose and a smile!

Perhaps larger flowers that come back year to year.

We have this view from the lanai and the open patio and firepit.

We need to do some landscaping along the border here – just do not know what and when – but we will.

Papa’s World – walking home from the beach in Ocean Keyes – NMB – part two.

The small building to the right is golf cart storage and a trash compactor building – the one to the left is for golf carts only. You are on a list here for golf cart spaces – that is the only way to get a spot to park it.
Sherry walking by one of Six Pools just like this one – the two on the main road through Ocean Keyes – have a community building – with TV – pool table – ping pong table and chairs and tables. This one has the work out room with all types of equipment. Each pool has a hot tub and a small wading pool. There are propane grills and picnic tables outside and each pool has men and women bathrooms.

The complex has over 780 individual condo units and town houses – this at one time a golf course called The Old Gator Hole! I think in the mid 2000’s it was sold and made into Ocean Keyes plus two other developments including a plaza with Walmart and Home depot.

Her on the left is one of two trash compactors we use – this one also has recycle bins while the other does not.
On our walk we pass the tennis courts and pickle ball court where we have played pickle ball with friends.
To be continued in my next blog – part three of walking back from the beach in Ocean Keyes!

Papa’s World – walking home from the beach at Ocean Keyes – N.M.B. going to miss this!

As we leave the beach entrance we use almost every day – and walk back to the condo – a two block walk to the gate.
This is the property just before we enter the gate at Ocean Keyes – We love this house and grounds!

This is along the sidewalk outside the fenced in yard – almost everything here comes back every year!

They have irrigation out here as well in the enclosed yard. It is shaded by Cypress trees –

and it is a inkling to what is inside the fence!

As soon as you walk through the gate – you see these three white ducks!

I have given them the names of HUEY – DEWEY and LOUIE ! LOL

Sherry – who is a CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH – will run ahead of me – then turn around and come back – to get her heart rate up – but I think she sees this sign and off she goes! LOL

I have to keep up or the sign in RED is for me!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – the next blog will continue the walk back through Ocean Keyes!

From here to the condo is 1/2 mile walking!

Papa’s World – walking a nature trail with Debby in Winchester Va.

A picture along the trail in a display for a resident hiker of the Appalachian Trail she took beginning to end.

This is all part of the Shenandoah Museum complex in Winchester Va. A hiking trail – through the woods.

Sherry took all these pictures as we walked about three miles!

The pathway is very wide – I would guess eight feet and all made up with crushed limestone! There are benches to sit on the entire walkway – and areas to sit quietly – a really nice walk and easy on the feet!

We have walked this every time we come to visit and now in late spring – the flowers and trees are full!

Papa’s World – morning sunrise – blue skies – late afternoon – thunder – lightening – RAIN!

Morning sunrise – calm – warm – partial clouds – then blue skies – a start of a beautiful day!

It started out with sunshine and we walked the beach – and the neighborhood –

But – the storm was out there – coming up from the South – West!

We did get all our steps in and had dinner – a beautiful day here in S.C. North Myrtle Beach – Ocean Keyes!

Our beach walk in the morning – on Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.
And then 12 hours later – it blew in and it started to rain!

The sky turned from blue to gray – clouds were rolling in – thunder and lightening!

The wind picked up – Sherry started to go out the front door – the side of the condo the storm was coming from!

She had a hard time holding the door so she closed it!

The lightening was bad and the thunder shook us.

This was the first real storm in the day light we have had since being here!

I have to admit – it got a little bit scary!

The wind just whipped the rain almost sideways!

This went on for a couple hours – and lightening on and off!

I do like a good storm to fall asleep with – lightening – thunder and rain – but can do without the wind!

Papa’s World – BROOK GREEN GARDENS – a must to see south of Myrtle Beach on rte 17.

If you want a peaceful walk – there are miles of trails and paths – among the old growth live oaks – the tall cypress and pine trees of South Carolina.
Along the way – a boardwalk – near the marsh – through the grounds of the old slave quarters – and see the history of this historic old plantation – and the huge rice fields – and wonder how these people lived – worked and toiled.
Scattered about over the acres and acres of the park – hundreds of bronze statues – depicting life of the world – by famous artists – some bigger than life – beautiful to see – and a story behind each one!
A building of hundreds of bronze statues – faces – animals – marble – stone – behold the beauty and capture the imagination of ones soul.
Carved out of wood – almost real like – exceptional artistic work.
Another work by the same artist – carved out of wood!

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!

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 – 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!

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.

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!

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!

Sherry Ella Sarah Papa

We had a fine day to be out and about – so we decided to show them some nature

As they are all about the outdoors!

We went back to Vareen Memorial Gardens –

just before you cross the state line into N.C. in Little River S.C.

Ella Sarah Sherry Sarah is growing up so fast – at 14 she is catching up to both Sherry and Ella!

Across the marsh and over the tidal canals –

at low tide – does not look so scary when empty!

Sarah and Ella who is almost 5′ 9″ tall!

We entered the trees and brush along a sand pathway – trail.

We had been here a couple times before

bringing family to explore and see the ICW and the beauty of a pristine nature walk.

The girls loved this as did Debby who is all about the outdoors and hiking!

Sherry Debby Ella

We soon entered the trees and bush growth

it was shaded in here and I think would be welcomed in the S.C. heat of Summer!

Sarah checking out the shore of the ICW and looking for sea shells!
Debby and her mother – resting before we continue into the forest trails!
Sherry Debby Ella and Sarah

One last walkway before entering the pine and cypress trees!

The path is marked – and branches off in all directions!

Respite from the hot sun!

A shaded walk – can be a couple miles if you select the right path

We choose the shorter route – we had some more places to show them!

WE WILL BE BACK someday we told them!

The sand path through the trees!

PAPA’S WORLD – HIKING THROUGH VAREEN MEMORIAL GARDENS WITH FAMILY!

Papa’s World – Walking the beach in the chilly – windy – air – living life!

North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

It has a way of pulling you – the sound – the air – and the chill!

We try to walk the beach every day – except during the rain!

I bundle up – because I do get cold easily!

They told me I would after I had my heart attack some 7 1/2 years ago.

And – that is true – I really do not like being cold!

Papa – neck warmer – ear muffs – gloves – warm jacket – I detest wearing hats!

So – this winter – I will take the chill – some rain – actually a lot of rain –

and some wind – but – I dress warm and toasty!

Papa walking the beach – staying warm!

I have found – NO SNOW – NO ICE – can make up for that chilly air and wind-

as long as I am warm I can and do walk!

Sherry – taking a picture of a deserted beach – she does not get as cold as I do.

Sometimes we are the only ones out there!

We will try it until the wind drives us off –

Sand blowing in ones face and eyes – well – I can do without that!

But then the Sun comes out – and those warming rays make all the difference!

Papa’s World – Make a wish – FAMILY JONES!

When we were here with our grand kids – CASSIDY -TAYLOR – BODE – they strung together these shells with all our names on them including MORMOR & PAPA! Each time we return – we can feel them being here!

They began gathering their shells –

We had shown them the shells that the grand kids had hung from the tree!

The shell Taylor hung with her initials – TK – and the month and year!
In the back ground – our grand daughters – Cassidy – shell with her cousins Olivia in the foreground.

They loved doing this – and when other family members come down

we shall do the same!

On the tree – Sherry wrote the names – Taylor – Cassidy – Bode and now Maya and Olivia.
Maya signing her shell.
Olivia signing her shell!

We spent some time here – reading other shells and found one with a date of 1990!

Papa’s World – Papa – when are we going on a hike? PAPA? PAPA?

Our young grandson – five granddaughters and then Bode!

From the very moment they pulled in – he asked that question –

PAPA – CAN WE GO ON YOUR HIKE?

To him – a hike is like back home – rocks – hills forest – streams!

I tried to explain to him it is different here –

But PAPA – That is not a hike – we have to go to the mountains!

Bode – entering the forest for our hike – along the ICW and the marsh land – no gators – at least we saw none!
“FOLLOW ME GUYS”!

He is a leader – and always out in front!

This is him to a tee – always staying ahead of the game – his own mind.

We walked a good mile and one half through the woods –

although he was out in front of me or alongside of me –

he never sought to run off –

staying close to me!

There were many intersections going in different directions – which way do we go PAPA he would ask – I had a map so I could tell him – he always listened to what I would say!
The twins – Taylor and Cassidy stayed close to their MORMOR ( Sherry)

We spent the better part of a hour walking the marsh and the woods

I want to come back here in the Summer so we can see more wild life!

Papa’s World – find a seashell – write a name and date – and then make a wish!

There is a place – next to the ICW – in Vereen Memorial Park – where you find a shell – date it and your name – hang it from a tree – and then make a wish – hundreds of the hang and this one is from our Taylor!
At ten years old – she already is five foot tall – she will someday be taller I think than her MorMor( Sherry) who is 5′ 9″ must be the Swede coming through!
I am little – some day I will be bigger – so she says – but every day she either calls or texts her MorMor ( Sherry ) and that sweet little soft voice – “I love you MorMor ” here she hangs her wish!
Cassidy showing her shell for a wish! I think she looks just like Taylor in this picture!
Bode – hanging his seashell wish – the only boy out of six grand children!
I have said – Cassidy and Bode should of been the twins – they are two peas in a pod!
Bode Taylor Cassidy

They came to spend a long weekend with us –

seeing where we live and where we are building our new home!

They were so excited – and hiking was on our things to do!

We had told them there was a place to make a wish and hang the shells from a tree!

But first you must search for the right shell

then date it and put your name on it!

MorMor – leading Taylor – Cassidy and Bode on a search for their own perfect sea shell!

Papa’s World – deserted beach – and then a helicopter overhead – two men in the open back hatch!

It was cold – a little wind – and no one on the beach!

But we braved the cold and started to walk –

at least the wind was not blowing –

But – there was no one!

In both directions it was like this!

As we walked in the solitude –

we both could hear what we thought was a plane!

As it got closer – we could see it was a huge helicopter!

If you look close you can see two men sitting in the back

with their legs hanging over the edge!

No way for me as heights and me do not mix!

One time I went to the top of the Empire State building

One step outside to the deck and I froze!

I had to go back inside and down as fast as I could.

No big cities for me as I fell like everything is closing in on me!

It was a memory I shall have for the rest of my life –

and this one was another one!

It was not going fast so we had time to take it all in

on a deserted beach on a cold day!
