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

City Council meeting tomorrow night. Come on out and cheer on three of your friends and neighbors that have decided to step up and volunteer for one of several committees that are in need of your support. Good job, Craig, Dave and Rob.

Nothing new to report on Club status. You’ll see it here as soon as I get it.

Anybody get a picture of the waterspout in the bay yesterday? I was down in Bacliff when it rolled through.


A free society is one where it is safe to be unpopular.

Thank you Dave, Rob and Craig for serving our community. I forgot about council being tonight or I would have come to thank you.
