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

Happy Easter!

This is for everyone that is (was) as confused as me. It's from Wiki so it has to be true right?
"The Easter Bunny (also called the Easter Rabbit or Easter Hare) is a folkloric figure and symbol of Easter, depicted as a rabbit bringing Easter eggs. Originating among German Lutherans, the "Easter Hare" originally played the role of a judge, evaluating whether children were good or disobedient in behaviour at the start of the season of Eastertide.[1] The Easter Bunny is sometimes depicted with clothes. In legend, the creature carries colored eggs in his basket, candy, and sometimes also toys to the homes of children, and as such shows similarities to Santa Claus or theChristkind, as they both bring gifts to children on the night before their respective holidays. The custom was first mentioned in Georg Franck von Franckenau's De ovis paschalibus[2] (About Easter Eggs) in 1682[3] referring to a German tradition of an Easter Hare bringing Easter eggs for the children."
So there.

Did I mention the great weather we had on our first camping trip of the season. It was very pleasant when we got there Thursday night. Cool, but it was to be expected in March. We did get reprimanded by the Park authorities for being too loud after 10. we deserved that. Friday was awesome. Mostly. Started out with quite a hike up to and over a local mountain. I think someone said it was a couple of thousand feet tall. Mountain to us flatlanders on the Texas coast. We were working on dinner when this happened.
That is a Capri Sun juice bag.
Here's a better pic thanks to Philip Adams.

Can't wait for the next trip!

Happy Easter everyone.
