What a great weekend in Clear Lake at the 24th annual Keels & Wheels event.  Threatening weather was partly to blame for the small member turnout, but mother nature was on our side and we ended up with a beautiful weekend. Club members were invited to join Club members Kathy and Douglas on their catamaran for refreshments before dinner that night. We were joined by some of the Houston Mercedes Club for dinner on Friday night at Eduardo's Mexican Seafood Restaurant. Saturday morning we took the shuttle to Keels & Wheels, which was only about a block from our hotel, to enjoy the many classic cars parked beneath the oak-covered grounds of the Lakewood Yacht Club. The weather was perfect... cool and breezy. So many classics to see. And the owners are more than willing to tell you about their cars. Strolling around to the backside of the yacht club were more cars and the classic wooden boats on display on the bay. Author Clive Cussler was the Grand Marshall for the event. He was on hand to sign photos and give autographs. He also brought one of his many classic cars - a 1911 Locomobile. Club members Kathy and Douglas invited us to join them for lunch at the Houston Yacht Club in the afternoon. That evening, we met for dinner at a local family owned favorite - Tommy's Seafood restaurant serving the freshest seafood from the bay of Galveston. It was a fine end to a fantastic weekend.
