Papa’s World – Toes in the water – beach life!

Finally we have made it to our dream –

We always vacationed at the beach

up and down the EAST COAST!

Today – until the end of February

we will be next to it!

Sherry and I sold our house and rented a condo

one half mile from the beach

in North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

We did this because I just happen to come upon

this rental – and the view of this small lake

from the top floor lanai!

OUR VIEW EVERY DAY!

And the bonus – during our three mile plus walk everyday

half of that walk is on the beach!

Of course said walk comes after my morning cup of coffee!

Why for five months?

Because we do not know where we want to live

only that it will fall someplace

from here to the northern border of N.C.

We have always talked of this

But where ever we go – the criteria is twofold

We will try to stay within 7 hours of our families

in NVA.

And a place that is warm – no snow – and lots of golf!

We did not know at the time just how much Sherry would come to love this place!

Being here – it is warmer than where we lived in the winter

and we walk everyday –

hardly any traffic as we walk within a gated community –

until we cross a road to the beach.

And then after a 1/2 mile walk – we have this!

I LISTEN TO HER THOUGHTS!

She has leaned over to me and said

” I REALLY LOVE THIS WALK AND PLACE”!

A QUIET PLACE TO WORK ON HER PHONE!
TOES IN THE SAND for me!
WE HAVE SAVED – we have worked all our lives.
We have found our quiet place – our love – and a place for family to enjoy.

We are close to the over seven hours for our trip back to NVA!

The family is now a long weekend away.

We still are searching!

Oh – you can ride golf carts here!

TOES IN THE WATER – OUR HAPPY PLACE!

Papa’s World – Cross Junction Lake Holiday – Va.

There is a place in the quiet countryside of Va.

A place on route 522 –

South of Berkley Springs –

North of Winchester Va.

Lake Holiday –

GOOD MORNING

Our daughter and family have called this home for thirteen years !

We actually had a house built there

but sold it –

as it would of been too far to drive !

Lake Holiday and dam

The lake itself is not huge – around 227 acres –

But it does have three beaches –

with WHITE SAND !

Most boats you see are Pontoon boats –

But power boats are also there.

Power boat towing

There is a very large clubhouse and also a Marina –

Where there is a waiting list for slips.

Beach Two

There are several sand volleyball courts on the two main beaches –

The third beach is somewhat secluded

and used mostly to set off fireworks – fishing –

or a destination spot for boats to anchor and swimming.

Beach one

Beach one is the main expanse of beach –

All events are held there and at the clubhouse-

which has a huge outside deck wrapping around it.

It covers underneath it for events in case of rain

and the boat marina is right there also.

Beach one looking toward the dam

There are hundreds of houses situated all around the lake

And at one time had a 18 hole golf course

where a host of homes still exist on the open fairways.

Almost all the streets are named in connection with the course.

Beach two

Beach Two contains camp grounds – play ground – volleyball court.

And is much more quiet and a place to dock up to three boats

On a floating dock system.

Swimming area
beach two

A no wake zone for all the beaches and coves exists

And the entire lake is protected by a security force.

There is a guard shack with gate lifts that you must stop and be checked out

You have to provide ID and must be called in by a owner

in order to be admitted

The entire area is monitored 24 / 7 365 days a year.

Beach tow with floating boat slip and dock

All in all – it is a very nice quiet community –

when lakefront homes do come up for sale

They generally go very fast.

There still are homes being built although most are off the lake.

Beach three side is mostly undeveloped –

Mainly because no infrastructure exits on that side of the lake.

Although you can purchase lots –

people then build decks – docks and use it to dock their boats.

Fall along the lake

This is a four season area in the Shenandoah Mountains

Although most Winters it does not freeze entirely.

This is a little bit about a quiet place

A place we have been visiting for thirteen years

Where our three oldest grand daughters live
