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

America invented ?

April 25, 1507, "America" was first used as the name of a continent on a map. German cartographer Martin Waldseemueller used the name in honor of Italian navigator Amerigo Vespucci. Do with that what you will.

If you are going to be out and about in Kemah this weekend here's a heads up just for you from neighbor Mark:

Temporary road closures both Saturday and Sunday.

It was pointed out by a neighbor that her favorite ice cream topping came in a glass bottle. Well at next weeks Civic Club meeting no bottles allowed. We'll be at the pool so pour enough to drown that homemade vanilla in a different container please. Insert wink.

 From neighbor Steve:
