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

National DNA Day

Santa brought me the DNA test kit a few years back. It was very interesting. I was looking for my Grandmothers American Indian influence and got 66% Great Britain, no big surprise there since I can track my family back to 1650 in England, 9% Iberian Peninsula, 8% Ireland, 8 % Western European and 6% Scandinavian. We were told that Granny was Choctaw. I swear. Imagine that.

Today is a sad day. The end of an era. I guess technically Ike was the end but this is certainly the last nail. It was The Island Bar and Grill when I first moved to Clear Lake Shores. Many a late night breakfasts were had there.


Time to fire up the grill. I feel the need for shrimp after seeing Greg's Facebook post.
