Well, we’ve been in the news all day, not in a good way (is there really any good news reported anymore?) Tar balls from the oil spill in the Gulf have reached our beach. We went there this afternoon and didn’t see any oil, but saw plenty of reporters and news vans.
There was even a Spanish speaking crew. So for now people are fishing and swimming while they can. There have already been restrictions put on some local fishing and there is talk of beach closures coming soon.
