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

The ISLANDER is looking for a PROOF READER.  The job should take about 2 hours a month.  You can respond to this email if that's something you could do.

MOSQUITOES - Let's everybody call Galveston  800-842-5622 and ask for a spray truck before we are carried away.

Looking for something to do next weekend?  Join me for a Margaritaville Cruise on the Star Gazer, Saturday October 4th, 5 ~ 7:30 PM. Boarding time is 4:30PM.

What a fun way to kick off your weekend....a 2 1/2 hour cruise of Clear Lake, The Boardwalk and the Bay, lots of Phine Pheathered Phriends, gourmet cheeseburgers, margaritas and dessert!  All this and some of your favorite Trop Rock tunes with yours truly! (Not Jimmy Buffet on a six string as noted in the link! LOL!)

I know you can get margaritas and cheeseburgers almost anywhere, but this is all about the boat ride!  How many times have you seen the boats going in or out from the bridge or the boardwalk and thought, "Wouldn't it be nice to be on that boat...". Well here's your chance!

Check out the details at the Star Fleet site below. Hope to see a bunch of you there!

That's the beauty of a poop bag, you don't have to touch it at all, and a Sunday newspaper plastic bag works best, it comes all the way up to your elbow.

OMG! A couple was riding with a baby in a golf cart without a baby seat! Shouldn't they get a ticket at least?

Since golf carts are "slow moving vehicles" I doubt car seats are required, just like seat belts. Might be smart, but not legally required.

I think there is an ordinance that says kids have to be in a car seat, but the police don't enforce it.

The police in Clear Lake Shores do enforce the ordinance of car seats for toddlers/babies. I was stopped in the past and instructed on the ordinance. They do at least have to be in seat-belts.
