The above picture was the worst of the oil that we saw along the Alabama Gulf Coast.  It was taken in the bay just behind the bridge over Perdido Pass.

Early last week there was almost no sign of oil.  We saw just a single tar ball on Monday (that one was found on my leg) & Tuesday.  It was signficiantly worse on Wednesday.  I had my 1st experience showering w/ Dawn.  As the week went on it got better.  You cold see a slight sheen on the water’s surface & would notice it slightly on you when you got out of the water.  If you weren’t looking for it, you probably would not have noticed except for the slight stains on your swimsuit.

The crowds on the beach were maybe 1/3 of what’s typical during the summer.  The crowd was more like you were visiting in September than July. It was sad (but also kind of nice to not have long waits at the restaurants).
