Cape San Blas
June 22, 2010 §
The beaches at Cape San Blas along the Forgotten Coast are as beautiful as ever! There are no tar balls or oil to report over the last week. The fish and wildlife are unaffected and the weather was terrific. All in all the trip to Florida was great. There are some workers from BP around and I’ve included them in my pictures.

The Grass Flats along St. Joseph Bay are fertile grounds for all sorts of fish, crabs, sea urchins, and lots of other sea life.
This dock is perfect for any fly fisherman that are scared to venture into the actual grass, the notoriously excellent fly fishing is much better from eye level though.
This Sting Ray is an example of the powerful animals of the sea. It took all the strength in the world to get the Sting Ray on the beach and attracted quite a crowd. Including the workers for BP.

William managed to get a gash in his leg while messing around at the bay...don't stand on the rocks!!
BP Crew at Work during the Heat of the Day. If you ask the person in charge what they are doing they will literally tell you "It is not in my pay grade to discuss this with you." Well, it's safe to say they are not taking a nature hike.

This sign is about 1 mile up the beach from the BP workers. Endangered Speices are being put at Extraordinary Risk!
If you ever get a chance you need to visit the Forgotten Coast. The beaches are the whitest in the world and they are not crowded in any way, shape, or form. The people along the Gulf of Mexico need our support and visiting areas like this is one way we can all help.
