I’ve added a page to my blog for the BP oil spill updates. The media isn’t helping our area. As of today, June 7, 2010, there is NO oil on our beach. Here’s a photo I took about 7pm on the beach in Santa Rosa Beach.
Am I concerned about the oil? Am I scared, mad, outraged, emotionally drained…you bet. In the beginning, my husband and I were watching updates every night. Praying and hoping the oil would be stopped. About 2 weeks ago, I couldn’t take it anymore….the anger, frustration and emotions got the best of me. The other day I looked at CNN.com and the picture on the home page was of 2 birds, (who had just been rescued), sitting in a basket struggling to breath because of being totally covered in oil. That same night I turned on Anderson Cooper, (AC360), and the same photo was on the screen. I just started to cry.
I have been and continue to follow the updates. I’ll keep posting beach pictures and videos of our beaches. Destin will recover and this too shall pass.
