Pensacola Beach, Florida

Previously advertised as "The World's Whitest Beaches."
The beach is covered in oil tonight. I walked for two hours from near Peg Legs west about one mile past the Fort Pickens gate and saw nothing but oil everywhere and maybe a dozen clean up people half of which were working.
There are additional relevant videos at CitizenTube.   Here's an old postcard I found at Flickr:

  1. Strange how all the U Tube videos of this tragdey have been disconnected, like it never happened. But when I walk the beach ever now and then an oil ball will surface. There is still a small crew of workers sifting the sand every evening. The white sand looks good on the surface but underneath there are still oil balls.
