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.

Papa’s World – golfing Magnolia Greens – home course of friends – beautiful!

Sherry and Cindy – they decided to walk the 18 holes – Sherry got a new pull cart!

I actually believe these 27 holes compare to the best in the area including Myrtle Beach!

On this day – the flowers were in full bloom and reminded me of Augusta!

Almost every hole was like this!
A view of the driving range from the outdoor patio of the clubhouse!
Sherry Cindy and Buck – having a beverage on the outdoor patio after 18 holes!
On one of the tee boxes – everything was blooming!

We have played this course many times over the years!

They have called this home for at least twenty years.

Having bought and sold and built here many times.

This is the main reason we came South to this general area.

Our new home will be about 40 minutes away –

so daily golf is available!

Sherry on the patio of their home that overlooks one of the large waterways on the course!
Cindy on the same patio of their home looking in a different direction from Sherry!
Cindy was to the left – Sherry to my right and Buck straight across from me – looking at the course across the water!

This is the second home they have built here – both in this water area and both had like views –

only this one is downsized from the other one.

Buck and I on the tee box about to tee off!

We – Buck and I – did our usual scramble – and we had a record for us – we shot a 39 with a double boogie the last hole!

If you are ever in N.C. just South of Leland and Wilmington – this is a public course – 27 holes – stop in and make a tee time – it will surprise you and you will love it – one of the best around the area!

Papa’s World – Stopped at Patio’s in Little River S.C. Saw Weekend with Bernie and a Eagle

We had journeyed to Cameron Woods – to see how the construction on the house was coming along!

No one works on Sunday – so we could park and walk around!

Then – after we left – I said – ” How about we drive down into the waterfront at Little River”?

When we first came down here – we had driven down into the area and saw all these neat local places to eat!

First impressions are – you want to go with someone else – there is a biker bar there.

But – after walking around – I can now see it is okay!

We followed some signs that led us to a place called PATIO’S!

Off the beaten path but we walked to it!

And – then we were greeted by BERNIE!

As in THE MOVIE WEEKEND AT BERNIE’S!

I laughed – this was funny – and a place I felt comfortable in! BERNIE!
We seated ourselves on the outside patio decks – and listened to the live music.

I had my first draft beer in three weeks!

I really do not drink all that much – seldom the hard stuff – mostly drink water!

But – for some reason sitting on the ICW – listening to a good lady singer –

singing from requests all the music I love – EAGLES – when low and behold – one perched just outside the deck!

A bald eagle landed and sat there while she was singing a EAGLE’S song!
Then it lifted off and soared overhead – circling the entire patio!
And landed once again on the peak of the fishing shack right beside us!
We decided we are going back here and bring our guests here!
Sherry had the Sushi from the Sushi bar! And said it was very good!

I on the other hand did not eat – but rather had my second draft of a light IPA

Called a BLOND ZOMBIE!

Normally I do not drink IPA’s as I feel they are too heavy – but I liked this one –

enough so I had a second one!

12 oz drafts are just enough for me!

View of the ICW from Patio’s!

Papa’s World – Coloring eggs on the lanai -exploring Barefoot Landing – LITTLE ONES!

One of the first things Sherry did for the little ones after they had a good nights sleep-

Was to color Easter Eggs!

So – she hard boiled the eggs – set up on the Lanai – and they got to it!

Taylor Cassidy Bode – on the Lanai overlooking the small lake at Ocean Keyes – coloring Easter Eggs!

This has been a tradition with MorMor – as they call her -Swede for Mothers Mother!

She has done this even before Bode – who is six was born!

Afterward – things were washed up and packed for Tammy to take back to NVA!

Cassidy Bode Taylor

I think Cassidy and Bode should of been the twins!

They are so much alike and act the same.

It is hard for me to tell the difference if I am not looking at them – to see who is talking!

Now – Bode is going to be tall like Taylor – who is so laid back!

She likes her “TAYLOR” time!

She also is going to be the tallest of the granddaughters

With Maddy being 5′ 6″ – Ella 5′ 8 1/2 ” and Sarah pushing Ella at 14 years old!

We took the family to Barefoot landing in North Myrtle Beach –

We had taken them there before and the little ones love the playground!

There was a Easter Egg hunt – scavenger – find the different stores hunt going on!
Cassidy at one of our favorite stores!
Cassidy and Taylor with I think Frozen Princess’s

Then it was time for a late lunch – our reservations were ready!

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – 2-25-21 – warm – sunshine – beach walk – people in the water!

Near the end of Feb. warm sunny day – people actually in the water!

I am loving this weather down here in S.C at North Myrtle Beach!

This day – it was between 70 and 75 degrees!

Sherry walking toward the surf – tide is going out – beach is getting wide!

Our life has changed – beach life has now become our norm!

The surf – sand and water – everyday – count our blessings!

We have always loved the ocean – sand – and warmth!

When our new house is finished – we are only 30 minutes away from this!

And – where our home is situated – 4 and 6 miles to two different beaches!

The sound of the surf when it is calm – the sun – and smell – draw us each day!

Papa’s World – when friends John and Nancy visit – walk – cards – Rummikub!

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 0 Sunrise before we left to go back to NVA!

The morning sunrise!

The day we left to venture back to Northern Virginia –

I glanced out the sliding glass doors and this is what I saw!

The swans cruising around the bend.

I also looked for the swans – we have three of them now –

and here they came – gliding past the other community pool –

These two hand out around our end –

While the lone swan hangs down on the other end.

These two are mates and will not let the lone swan near them.

I have seen what I think to be the male of the two –

Make a beeline toward the lone swan –

enough so that the lone swan takes off flying over the lake and lands at the far end!

In a few days we will head back down to S.C. once again to “HOME”!

Funny how that has worked out – we are very comfortable with the area now!

And – as much as we love our family time and visiting –

Home is where our hearts are now – the new build and the excitement

of the family visiting us!

I always remember our past – all the places we called home!

Our current view that I will miss!

Papa’s World – Two new Swans – they just show up!

Taken from our Lanai – they seem to hang out now at our end of the lake!

The three Swans that were here first are gone – so we are told.

Seems the Male chased one and in doing so – at another pond –

It somehow broke it’s neck!

Then they found one that had been bitten by a snake!

The third – we just do not know and we were told this by a couple who live here!

These two were reintroduced by Wildlife management

we were also told!

The Swans come and go – but lately have been staying here.

I have watched them fly in and land –

right across the view we have on the fourth floor!

I have also watched them take off –

and fly down to the other end of the small lake.

It is a very loud noise as they beat their wings and take off!

I watch them sleep on the banks during the day in the sunshine.

And – in the moon light at night see two white shapes floating just below us!

There are other groups of water fowl

Different types of Ducks – Geese –

Birds from the Ocean a half mile away!

The view everyday from our Lanai!

But – I love the Swans the most!

PAPA’S WORLD: THE SWANS HAVE RETURNED livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – a little lunch-dinner with grand kids at Local on the water!

We all were hungry!

So – where do you go during a pandemic – social distancing?

We had been hiking the trails of Vereen Memorial Gardens!

The little ones had some snacks but it was not enough.

So – we decided to take them to “LOCAL ON THE WATER”!

Cassidy Taylor Bode and Mormor in the background!

There was one other couple there – outside – so we had the entire place to ourselves!

The kids loved it – swinging – sand pit – corn hole – and watching the boats

go up and down the ICW!

Cassidy – Bode – two peas in a pod!

Here came a tugboat – leading a flotilla of telephone poles!

This caught the eyes of all three!

There were three tug boats with all these poles in the water between them!

One after another they passed – the poles had cables attached –

the lead tug guided them – the middle tug kept the front and rear poles in a line!

The last and third tug boat!

The third tug brought up the rear – all in all it stretched the length of at least a football field!

We were all just watching it pass by!

We have been here before – at least three times!

And have found that during the afternoon –

hardly anyone is here – making social distancing perfect!

Bode and Cassidy!

PAPA’S WORLD – HOME TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS!

Papa’s World – Swans – they come and go – and bring joy and smiles for us!

We never know when the Swans will show up – first there were three – now there are two – you look outside and there they are.

I have seen them fly in one time – I have seen them take off and fly to the other end.

But I have never seen them fly off and leave!

But – when they are here – I find myself often glancing out of the lanai

searching for them cruising around –

or up on the bank – at the foot of the next condo!

I wonder to myself – what happened to the third one?

When they first appeared – there were three – and the big one would lead the other two around.

Then one day two disappeared and the one would just sort of hang out by itself

in the area all three would be.

After a week – I watched as the two flew in –

right outside the lanai – so close I felt like I could touch them.

And they landed just short of the fountain you see here.

The third hurried over to them!

Here they are right below the lanai

The last several times – they all left and only two have returned.

I believe they are a pair – the third – I do not know – but it was as if –

it was always leading and protecting them.

Back when all three were here – the one to the left would chase the geese away!

Now – we only ever see the two!

But – we enjoy them all the same!
