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

Guess what?

It's National Pig Day!



"Pigs aren't really fat. They're Rubenesque," Mary Lynne Rave told the Virgin Island Daily News in 1980. Concerned about the poor pig's reputation, Rave and her sister Ellen Stanley had founded National Pig Day back in 1972. She told the paper that the purpose of Pig Day is "to accord the pig its rightful, though generally unrecognized, place as one of man's most intellectual and domesticated animals."
Modern celebrations include porcine parades, promotions by the Minor League Baseball team, the IronPigs, and feats of pork, which is presumably not the pigs' favorite part.

I feel a tad bad about the bacon I had for breakfast. I'm over it.

Mardi Gras Parade
Starts at 2. Line up at the pavilion, I'll be handing  out numbers for the judging.

The party last night was a big hit. I hear they want to permanently move the event to "The Yachting Capital of Texas". Could be interesting.

Get out there and enjoy this beautiful Spring Day!!

Last night was great! It was good to mingle with all the "visitors".

Several asked about the limited parking. I guess we are like Kemah that way. Liked the idea of shuttling folks from other parking areas and having an area where boaters could dock.

We need visionaries to look into our future! Ronnie did so with the entrance. Go Ronne!

We need to make sure that we get out and show our support for Ronnie, EDC and all of the council members past and present have done a good job and fought for and against this. That shows that everyone has been represented and that's a healthy environment for our city government. Let's make sure we get out and show our support, or voice any opposition, for the pedestrian/bike bridge and the remainder of the landscaping work across the bridge. SAY YES TO THE BRIDGE COUNCIL!

We need to encourage outsiders to come to our Town center but we do not need to encourage them to walk over onto our island and explore this is a neighborhood with lots of things under peoples houses that are already turning up missing before we've even given access via this extremely expensive bridge please say no Council
