Good morning everyone. It is turning out to be a beautiful morning the temperature is not as hot but it has been a little overcast. The beach is very quiet this morning Saturday’s are typically a big check out day for us so everyone is heading home. There were a few people on the beach but it was actually really quiet. I saw the oil patrol go bye, and the Coast Guard fly over, heard the waves and smelled the salt air this morning. The water is still very clear, with the exception of a few sticks and some seaweed that has washed in with the big storms.
06/12/10 Dunes Beach at Ft. Morgan, Oil leak update from Sunset Properties
I am sure all of you have seen the reports on the news that Ft. Morgan has oil on its beaches, it is here in places. The worst report i have heard is from Mobile street it is about 13 miles to the east of us. this part of the beach is part of the Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge, I spoke with my good friends yesterday after the oil came a shore, they were out on that beach planting Sea Oats doing beach restoration when the oil was noticed. It is breaking our hearts to see it on the beaches anywhere and at the same moment we feel so very blessed that it is not on ours.
It seems for now everyones prayers and the One who controls the strong currents coming out of Mobile Bay are keeping us oil free. I’ll be back inthe morning. Please call us if you have any questions, or concerns, or if you would like to visit and enjoy the beaches for a special rate! 06/12/10 New friends waving at me from the water this morning!
