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

Well, it's gonna be tough but

It's National Bikini Day AND National Graham Cracker Day. If you had to pick one...

Hope everyone had a great Fourth. Happy Birthday America. Did you make it to Jarboe for all the fun? Too bad for you if you didn't. She's not a "new" Islander but after yesterday she has definitely earned her stripes. A big shout out to Roz (and Terry) Smith for volunteering to Chair the biggest event your Civic Club puts on. And for the first time ever we were treated to an amazing acapella version of the Star Spangled Banner by an equally amazing young lady. Wow. Just, wow.

On to "A Moveable Feast" I'm trying.
