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

Hmmmm....

It's National Grab Some Nuts Day. Meanwhile, back at the ranch.....
No rain the next day.
Looking north. Best pic I've ever taken.
Looking for the giant Sequoias
Found this one but its only an average Sequoia at 257' tall.
Found this set of twins too.

Then we found this bad boy. This is the General Sherman and the reason for our epic road trip. Wyatt decided he wanted to see soe big trees. the General Sherman is the largest of them all at 274 feet tall, 102 feet around with a 32 foot diameter. Bravo Zulu Mother Nature.
After a foggy night on Fisherman's Wharf, DI you know they close down at 9? we head north in this.
Yes it is the Golden Gate
Bodega Bay. It's where Hitchcock's "The Birds" was filmed. We ate in the car.
Onwards to Eureka. That's Charlie the seal poking his head up and checking out the boardwalk. 

Tomorrow is the Redwood Highway. More awesomeness and Oregon.
Last night's city Council was interesting. Short except for the budget part off it. We are looking at hiring two more officers and exploring options for our marine enforcement.
