"Milton Hershey actually began his career at a caramel company in the late 1800′s. Mr. Hershey was at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition and became fascinated with the exhibit of the machinery to make German chocolate. He then bought the equipment for his company. Therefore, the popular caramel, chocolate combination has been around for many many years"

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
