IslandDrumz

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

If the day before Christmas is Christmas Eve can we change the name of Thursday to Friday Eve?


For everyone that was able to make it to Lowell and Helle’s birthday party. WOW! Was that great or What?! It’s been a long time since I’ve seen that many people in the Club House. Hey Lowell, how about making this a monthly event?
We survived our fourth trip to Mamou La. for Mardi Gras. Mostly. Todd’s MRI shows only one fractured rib. In a month or so this will be funny. Really funny. Anyone in the market for a street board?  
Storm and all it was an impressive parade. To all our Acadian hosts, thank you for such a great time and to the Andrus family that provides some great eats in Eunice, thanks again. That is some good stuff.
Welcome home for the last time to Discovery and her crew. Retiring after 30 years. She’s the oldest shuttle and her next trip will be to a museum or as a display at one of the NASA Centers.
From neighbor Steve Porter..
