Sad times

On Wednesday Christopher and I headed to Gulf Shores to check out what is going on with the oil spill. It is so sad to see Gulf Shores this time of year with very few people. It was like a horror movie (it was about to rain so it was dark, there were not a lot of people anywhere, bus loads of clean up crew being let off at various parts of the beach) It was just plain sad and very depressing of what is to come of this area where I grew up and love. I want Christopher to enjoy visits to the Gulf like I did as a child and after what we saw I am not sure that is going to happen. We walked out on the beach and there were a lot of tar balls on the beach. There were a few people on the beach but most were like us and just checking out what was going on. News crews were there and the beach patrol was riding around making people get out of the water. We went out to dinner that night, did not have a wait and were only 2 of about 6 people in the well known restaurant. Very very sad.
