Welcome to our little slice of paradise! Clear Lake Shores is probably one of the best kept secrets in the entire Bay Area. Yes we are an island. We are surrounded by Clear Lake, Jarbo Bayou and the Lazy Bend canals. Plug this in to Google Maps and you'll see what I mean 29.32' by 95.01' We are about half way between Galveston Island and the city of Houston and located in north Galveston county. I will try to keep us up on all the goings on that we can walk, boat, bike or drive our golf carts to. Very few things pi$$ me off but one of them is wasting my precious time. I'll try not to waste yours. Enjoy. ab

Animal Day


Happy Monday, Break’s over, on your head. Today it’s all about our not quite human friends.
James Adams the younger donated to the Sea Turtle Conservancy and adopted a turtle. He named it Captain Okie on behalf of the Clear Lake Shores kids. For our off Island readers Capt Okies was our local Beverage, pronounced liquor, store. They had been at the entrance to the Island since 1964. Old friends indeed. Hurricane Ike dealt them a fatal blow in ’08 and despite some sincere efforts we had to let them go. They are missed daily. Not just the products but the families and folks who ran the place since I’ve been hangin’ out here in ’84. Ray and Helen, Brenda and Billie, Cynthia and Lloyd and don’t forget Pam. James, that was way past cool! I wish I was smart enough to get the PDF up here but .........
Then there’s the bunnie that was discovered in the area of Clear Lake Road and Ivy. Cute little fella. Go check your bunnie, if he’s not where you left him go see Lezlie and or Tony Smith on CLR. She volunteered several years ago to be our Island Pet Liaison and she is keeping your rabbit safe. He’s ready to come home now.
 
And there’s always a dog story not too far from the keyboard.  Tim and Julie’s friends are moving into a place that does not allow dogs and they have a beautiful 6 year old yellow lab named Stonewall and he needs a good home. That’s it for now.

Awe...There are resources and I would love the opportunity to find this loving baby a new family. My heart aches for the family that has to give him up.
