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

Barktoberfest 2104 is Almost Here!

Hello Clear Lake Shores! Barktoberfest 2014, benefitting Bay Area Pet Adoptions, is coming to Jarobe Bayou Park on Saturday, Oct. 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (rain date is Oct. 25). If you haven’t done so already, mark your calendars NOW! You won’t want to miss this event!

Our goal is to raise $10,000 for Bay Area Pet Adoptions.

To help reach that goal for Bay Area Pet Adoptions, the Civic Club is planning a fun-filled, pet friendly day of activities, including a Walk-Your-Dog-A-Thon, golf cart parade; pet competitions, pet specialist, demonstrations such as flyball and K-9 training, and also a pet psychic, caricaturist, and pet photographer.  And to get your holiday shopping started early, we’ll have a silent auction, white elephant sale, and plenty of vendors selling their distinctive merchandise. To top it all off, visit the “Bier Garten” where Allen Batchelor and his great team of folks will be serving Oktoberfest themed food and drinks, accompanied by oompah music!
