Perdido Key Tar Ball Skimmers
It is as bad as they said it was going to be. The stench of the oil seeping into our waterways is just awful. I am disgusted at how inept our country's environmentalists and conservators have been to get this travesty stopped. BP obviously doesn't know what to do, and our own government has offered empty platitudes but no solutions. Come on, Gulf Coasters, and muster yourselves. We are in this for the long-haul, and there is no turning back.
Tar balls have invaded my favorite spot in the world, Perdido Key. These pics are from 2008, from one of our stays at The Mariner.
