Just a quick post from the beautiful beaches of Alabama. As you can see, we saw no oil coming on shore.
Many locals have told us they feel that the media is making the story much worse than it is. Don’t get me wrong, the oil slick/spill is a HUGE problem but we’ve been here two days and as you can see in my pics, there is no oil on the shore nor any “tar balls” either. One business is advertising to pay $10 for each tar ball!
If you are planning a trip to the beautiful beaches of Alabama, I’d encourage you to “come on down”. Of course, you certainly want to follow the news about the oil slick but I don’t think you’ll have any problem with oil on the beaches.
Today we shopped and went sight-seeing. I won’t even mention how a certain someone got us lost and refused to ask for directions. Can you guess who I’m talking about? (hint: it’s not moi!)
Tomorrow we’ll spend most of the day on the beach and then tomorrow night we’re going to the Wharf and Guy Harvey’s!
