My name is Max Pearson. For ten years I lived on Bolivar Peninsula with three cats, two labrador retrievers, friend Greg, and my partner Art. In September of 2008 Hurricane Ike came along and swept away our house. We managed to escape with ourselves and the animals - but little else. So now we're residing in a small community north of Houston, safe and sound but missing life on the beach. I started this blog in June of 2008. It's been an eventful three years.
