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.
