Only 20mins... very jealous! We're up in Woodland Heights so we're staring 45mins in the face when we set off.. which is made even more painful by the fact our boat isn't in the US, but sat the other side of the pond probably covered in snow.

Each time we're down in Kemah/Seabrook area or Galveston I find myself healed nicely with full sails on a beam-reach cutting through the water with ease due to the perfectly warm 12-16knots flowing over the decks - then the sound of someone's car-door slamming drags me screaming back into reality: my feet planted on terra-firma!

You're in a good place to take full advantage of your proximity, even if the Friday evening traffic gets silly around Kemah boardwalk. You'll have the joy of being able to nip down there most evenings to tinkle.

When you mentioned sugarland the boys-in-blue spring to mind.. any work connection there?

Re: Hello from Clear Lake, Texas

Thanks, again everyone. Somehow I always end up by the water. Wouldn't want it any other way...except maybe sitting on the water in Trunk Bay.
