About WillieD1955
Joined November 2013
My name is William Davis, Born July 1955. By wife calls me Willie. Now you can see where I get my username WillieD1955.

My mother and father were from Louisiana. When I was a kid I spent a lot of time on the bayous and swamps. I used to tell my wife a story about how I was taught to swim. My dad tied a rope to me and threw me into the swamp with the alligators and would drag me back until I learned. This served dual purposes. I learned to swim and I was bait. My wife never believed the story until just recently. My mother was visiting and out of the blue related the story of how I learned to swim. Not sure how I survived but oddly enough these are some of my favorite memories.

For the last 30 years I’ve been a Real Estate Appraiser but I have been practicing online marketing for about 5 years with some success. They say you are only as good as the people you surround yourself with. That’s why I joined Wealthy Affiliates.

As for hobbies well in the past I kick boxed for 8 years. When I hit 35 they told me I was too old to fight anymore. Oh well. I also liked field and stream sports. I particularly like to fly fish in the south, which is uncommon. I am also proficient with a bow, shotgun and rifle. However, my health doesn’t allow me to do those things anymore.

My wife and I have traveled some. We've taken cruises to Alaska, the western Caribbean, the southern Carribean and the eastern Caribbean. We've also been to Costa Rica and went zip lining through the rain forest there. I've taken a number of wildlife photos, got a little too close to a crocodile once. But then I’m used to alligators. I’ll add a few pics just to tell the story.

To sum up, I like being outdoors, I like people, I like adventure and I’m looking to form successful relationships with the people here.

Willie thanks for the follow. Well, I live near Corpus Christi, Texas and when we were little we learned to swim in the ocean. Rip tides and waves shocked we survived. Great success to you.
WillieD1955 Premium
I've been down to Corpus Christi on many occasions and a number of the other coastal cities. I've swum in both the bay and the gulf. I've been caught in a riptide or two; so, I can relate.

The best saltwater swim experience I ever had was in Magens Bay Saint Thomas one of the US Virgin Islands. It is on the Atlantic side of the island.

The bay is heart shaped with the point towards the Atlantic Ocean. There is a small island just beyond the point, which blocks the waves from the Atlantic. The water is as flat and glass-like as a fresh water lake on a calm day. The sand is almost as white as snow. A great place.

Thanks for the follow William, and many blessings on all your efforts. I grew up in Cajun country and learned to swim in gator water also. I miss the great food and the beautiful culture there. Les bon temps roulet, cha!

Thank you for following me Willie. I have just pressed the button to follow you back.

I remember reading somewhere that you need both your hips replaced but need to lose weight first. Yes, exercising is difficult when you can barely walk and certain movements are either impossible or painful. People tend to suggest swimming in this situation - and I am sure they are right - but I have found that I so hated taking forever to get changed and it was so much effort that I didn't do it often enough. So the main thing for you to do is to be careful what you eat - lots of the suggestions made for Betty (hart48) will probably be useful for you too.

I am going to take a look at your website now. Look forward to keeping in touch.
