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

It's December already ?

Plus, It's National Rosa Parks Day.
Rosa Parks Day is an American holiday celebrated on February 4 or December 1 in honor of the civil rights leader Rosa Parks.
On December 1, 1955, after a long day of work Rosa Parks boarded a bus in Montgomery, Alabama. She took her seat in the ‘colored’ section, but as she rode the Cleveland Avenue bus home, the bus began to fill.
The Montgomery city ordinance allowed bus drivers to assign seating. However, it did not permit them to demand a passenger give up their seat. Despite this, bus drivers had customarily required black passengers to give up their seats to white passengers when the public transportation became full.
When Rosa Parks was asked to give up her seat, she refused. She was arrested and what followed is Civil Rights history. She was found guilty on December 5, 1955, of violating the city ordinance and fined $10 plus a court fee.
This Lady had a set. 

I volunteered as a chaperone for a school outing yesterday. It was for the aquatic sciences class so we went to the aquarium and rain forest at Moody Gardens in Galveston. As nice as it was if you plan on making the trip wait until after May 2017. easily half of the aquarium was closed for a whole host of reasons. Upgrades, updates and it looks like a lot of new stuff but you have to wait until May. The rainforest was pretty cool.

I'm gonna see if I can sneak in to Okies Corner and get a couple of pics for the blog. I better do it now, looks like we have a wet, cool weekend coming up. 

2017 is 30 days away. Can't quite.....

Anyone have a chance to try out the newest Island business?
