John & Anita

Meet John and Anita from Asheville, NC, whom I met on the beach today. They are part of a large team working with the Fish and Wildlife Service, conducting aerial and ground surveys to assess the damage of the oil spill along the coastline (or in our case establishing a baseline for when/if the oil arrives on our beach), and recovering oiled or injured wildlife to be cleaned, healed and released in safe locations.

I wish their time here was for enjoyment rather than an environmental catastrophe such as the oil spill.

Let's hope they get to keep walking along a beautiful, clean shoreline and enjoying the view such as we had today.

So beautiful! I always look forward to your posts! I live in Pace and wish I can get to the beach more often.

I pray the oil does not make it to your shores. I don't call it a "spill" anymore. It's so horrific.
