Clear Lake trivia: Where's that eagle?
Hopefully this edition of Clear Lake Photo Trivia will be a bit easier than the previous one. Post your guess below in the Comments section if you know where this picture was taken.
Regarding the last entry in this column, it seems that we had many people guessing, but no one was certain of the location of the plaque. Nonetheless, congratulations goes to user Ralph Wiggam" for his guess that the previous photo I posted was taken at T-Bone Toms.
As mentioned in the original article, several hundred customers walk within a foot of the plaque every day, but very few notice it. The next time you head over to Kemah to enjoy an Armadillo Egg, keep a close eye on your left foot as you enter the front door. According to one of the long-time employees at T-Bone Tom's, the plaque has not been moved since it was placed there in 1960. As T-Bones expanded, they just built right over it.
The current Kemah bridge is actually the third bridge to ford Clear Lake as it opens up to the bay. The bridge commemorated in the plague, like the one before it, was a draw bridge. The current Kemah Bridge was built in the mid 1980's. Here is the plague picture from the previous challenge.
Well, you know what to do next. If you happen to know where the above "eagle has landed," log in below with your answer.
