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

Camping in the rain

Is OK but that's all. Just OK. All the clouds did provide some very welcome shade though.
If you've never been to Village Creek State park it is very much worth the drive. It's just a couple of miles north of Beaumont on US 69. That makes it less than a two hour drive from our little slice of paradise. The camp was almost empty until we got there. We all got sites next to each other and that was nice and cozy. When I say cozy I mean less than 20 feet from the next camp. Since we have all been camping together for over 10 years and haven't killed each other it's OK. If someone else were that close to my camp site it would be awkward. Potentially very awkward. The sites we were in were very shaded which made it easier on our little AC units. The park was very clean and most importantly the restrooms we practically unused. Except by us. I do not recall one complaint from any of our significant others. A short hike to the creek prior to our departure was the perfect ending to a good camp. Official creek access was closed due to recent flooding but we managed to get close enough for a good look. Great swimming and one of our troop was already planning a paddle trip. River Otters and Beaver in the area but they assure us no gators. Water's too cool they say. All in all, We'll be back. It's just too close not to. Can't wait for the itching to stop. Entertainment was provided by our very own Master of Ceremony, B Hoerner. And I do mean Master.
Who do you know that can convince a group of adults to wrap each other in toilet paper in 90+. Extra pints if you can identify any of the "mummies"

Then it was dinner time. Did I mention we don't do hot dogs...

Tood, is it your turn to pick?
RAT (raggedy ass trailers)Pack. Redefining trailer trash one camp site at a time.

A shout out to C Kaepernick. Pretty sure you just singlehandedly redefined moron.
