Papa’s World – hiking the trail with the Myers family – grand daughters!

Debby Sarah Sherry Maddy Papa Mike Ella

I love this picture – I told Sherry we need to get it blown up and framed!

And – it all happened in a space of two or thee minutes!

Maddy took her phone – while we all just sort of found a place –

put it up and braced it on a tree limb –

set the timer for 6 seconds and “BOOM”

there it was!

We went back to the new trail – but this time – the whole family went!

This family hikes all the time – that is their form of family time together!

Mike will take the older two – Maddy and Ella – overnight hiking!

He would take Sarah – but she is into more like N.Y.City hiking!

Sarah – but she is the adventure type – always climbing – swinging from vines – exploring woods and meadows.

She is the one I think really likes it but has aspirations of one day dancing – acting – fashion –

But once you do get her out there – no boundry is off limits – being the free spirit she is!

Ella – come on – follow me!
Ella is 5 ‘ 8 1/2 ” Sarah who just turned 14 – I think will be taller – both taking after their grand mother Sherry – who is 5’ 9″

We made it a family day hiking – where Debby – Sherry and I had gone the day before!

A new trail within the city limits of Winchester Va.

When it is completed – with all the side trails and loops

you pretty much can get a easy five miles in!

YEP! there are also pastures and cows!
Walking the trail – Ella Maddy Sarah Mike Papa the trail is made of crushed limestone the whole way! Easy to walk on and not trip!

This day was somewhat cool but warm in the Sun!

And we made a day of it as long as we could.

Many volunteers keep this project going

helping to clear out brush

and maintaining the cut area’s!

There is a farm silo – which you can walk into – and look up and see this. A hand crank on the wall – makes these turn in opposite directions – providing the look of birds soaring in the clouds!
A old farm tractor just sitting there offering a photo opportunity!
Thank you for reading Papa’s World – where friends like you meet our family!

Daughter and Mother – living life to the plus – one day at a time!

WHERE FAMILY MEETS FRIENDS!

A DAY HIKING THE TRAIL WITH THE MYERS FAMILY!

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
