The Beach is Back!
My first walk on the beach in ages! Well, perhaps in days, but it seems like ages. The red tide seems to have dissipated with our record rainfall and the beach has been swept clean. For those of you who may have missed it, Gulf Breeze and Pensacola Beach (unofficially) recorded two feet of rain in two days.
Gone is the murky-colored water which was brought about by the red tide for a several days. Almost gone is 'Lake Via de Luna', which is what Via de Luna looked like on the east end of the island as water from Sugar Bowl's spring-fed pond overflowed into the main road.
But most importantly there are people back on the beach, enjoying themselves and taking advantage of this gorgeous day.
