This tree in back of the radio station lost another branch during a recent windstorm.
This house near the entrance to Glen Cove was a scene in the book "Real Women".

These big Oaks always fascinate me. They were here before Columbus. Some hundreds of years before.

Glen Cove residents have a private boat launch. The river is up a couple of feet.

A few of the houses that have water frontage are for sale.
Notice that the houses are actually on stilts. The first floor is just garage and patio.

Notice the bicyclers decide to walk their bikes. It's a steep climb up the hill.

My House looks great with all the rain we have had this year. The Lantana is taking over
The view between our house and the house next door looks like a park.

Down by the River

July 20, 2007
I took a walk down to Glen Cove Subdivision, a couple of blocks south of Court. This subdivision is built along the Guadalupe River, and has some of the largest Oak Trees around. Coming back, I noticed there are a few of the older homes (like mine) that have been remodeled and they look great. The Guadalupe River Boat Ramp in Glen Cove
This boat ramp is in Glen Cove, about two blocks South of our house. On July 20, 2007, the Guadalupe River reached 24.8 feet, putting the water several feet over the top of this boat ramp.
In the last 100 years, the Guadalupe River has hit Major Flood stage (26 feet) nine times.
Three of those nine times have been since 1998. I wonder....could climate change have anything to do with this?
