More Oil on the Beach
Things aren't looking good! I visited this same stretch of beach two days ago and it was still clean and pristine. Not so today! The brown speckles on the shore line is oil. Some of the oil patties were as big as a doormat. This stretch of beach is directly across form the Pensacola Pass. There was actually more oil "inside" the booms than there was in the unprotected areas to the west. The boom in this picture is supposed to protect the entrance to a tidal lagoon and marsh area. It's not working. Although the tide was going out there were signs of oil along the shore leading into the lagoon.
