Oil Spill and the Gulf (Florida)

I have spent about 10 days in the Florida panhandle with family and friends. The photo above if from the Sandestin area, where folks still flock despite all of doomsday talk of the spill across the USA.

I will tell you that folks are waking up to the nightmare every day. It's quite a sight to see on the beaches- volunteers and workers walking in Seagrove Beach, empty (thank goodness) bags to pick up tar balls. For most of the time, nothing on the beach but perhaps sun tan oil. That, plus an endless stream of 4 wheel vehicles of workers looking for something to do.

Keep the gulf in your prayers.
