Papa’s World – when grand kids come to visit – love them all!

The first thing they wanted to do was walk the beach!

Now – wouldn’t you know it that it got cold and windy the day they arrived!

It was so warm the day before people were sitting on the beach and wading in the water!

So we pressed on and walked down and onto the beach.

The wind was the culprit – making it very cold.

Even Bode has enough even though he had no shoes on!

We walked to the next beach entrance and exited!

It was a very short walk – but they got to see just how close we are!

Tammy said the kids were great – she had told them she would not stop and she didn’t making the seven hour drive in a little over six hours and they never complained!

And that night after the kids went to bed – we relaxed and watched a playoff game

We are all from Western New York

and were huge fans when Buffalo Bills made their four straight Super Bowls!

One of my favorite beers from back in Western New York!

Papa’s World – Sunrise – Windy beach – Full Moon – Charlie Brown Christmas!

NO IT DOES NOT GET OLD!
TWO AND ONE HALF MONTHS – WAKING UP TO THIS!

Every morning – the sunrise from our condo –

it paints a different sky each day.

I watch this as it develops each morning –

Sherry has the same view from our bedroom!

She has almost never seen the sunrise – but now she wakes up to this

and has almost trained herself to wake up to it!

Some days – we walk when we should of just stayed inside! LOL

Those days are mostly when the high winds are around.

One is because of the giant trees here!

They are high above our fourth floor condo!

And branches – even though small – come down!

We do not want to get hit by them!

The wind causing the sand to blow across the beach!
You can see that when it is windy – very few people venture forth! The sand is blown across all but wiping out the footprints!

Papa and MorMor – we tried as you can see –

but the wind was so strong –

and the sand was stinging our faces!

We decided not to for go a walk here

and instead walked the sidewalks where it was bearable!

We returned to the condo after getting in our three mile

beach less walk!

There are days such as this that we also do our errands!

Or go to a late lunch early dinner

when no one is around

keeping social distance!

Back at the condo – we await the late show

not on TV but outside

once again in the dark sky

the rising of not the sun

but the full moon!

Both sun rise and moon lit nights from our own private Lanai!

PAPA’S WORLD!

Papa’s World – A windy day walking the beach.

The calm before the wind!

We had gone through one day of winds

then another storm way off the coast

brought another windy day!

We headed out on our walk – nervous from the trees!

But we pushed on – walking the streets until we came to the beach.

Entrance to the beach – South of main street

The wind was stronger on the beach –

sometimes blowing the sand up and into your eyes.

This reminds me of desert sands

the wind dries out the sand

which is like powder here in SC.

Leaving footprinrs such as these after walking on it!

Did we make a error in coming to the beach?

The Ocean was rough – waves bigger than normal!

White caps from the shore outward.

A lonely man metal detecting

We were almost all alone!

There were a few brave souls

but the wind whipped up the sand

causing it to swirl across to the waters edge.

Almost no one on the beach and this was almost lunch time

We walked a short distance –

bracing against the wind

Even the birds were not there!

We are soul mates in the wind.

And then the calm at the end of the day – Full Moon – over the lake – our view from the Lanai

Papa’s World – A wind storm – hunkering down!

It was very windy out – a storm had hit the gulf coast

and was working its way North only inland from where we were.

However – it was very windy

and here at Ocean Keyes – there are very large

old time growth of live Oaks and Pine trees!

The kind that soar way up into the sky!

This picture I took standing at the fourth floor landing

of the condo we are living in.

It still went high above me!

And the tree branches were swaying back and forth.

We went for a short walk and decided it was not safe enough!

Small pieces of branches were coming down.

Small but large enough to really hurt you

if they hit you!

Well – not this! LOL

But – we did go back inside to wait it out!

And we tracked the storm to see how long this would be this way!

We then went out onto the Lanai – which is all screened in.

The wind seemed to be more at the front of the condo

and although we could see it come across the small lake

we were comfortable sitting on the Lanai!

So – we had lunch and broke out the new game we bought

called Rummikub!

And ended up sitting out there for a couple hours

while the storm passed us by!

( SHE WON)

We have begun our new life

living life one day at a time.
