Before I show you my latest card, I wanted to show you a couple pictures, one of them from my vacation last week. We are all familiar with the oil spill. I was in Orange Beach, AL, just next to Gulf Shores.
These are before the spill and after. What a tragedy for everyone. As you can see, the beaches are almost empty in one of the pics and it is like this is all up and down the beach (where the tractor is cleaning) and the earlier one shows how crowded it usually is, although they are doing a good job keeping the beaches cleaned. A few people were swimming in the water but the red flags were out. I just would not want to be in that water. We did see a lot of skimmers but I also, on one day, saw a bit of oil washing ashore. It is just heartbreaking. Just wanted to share this with you. Now, I'll go post a card.
