Last night we went out to Dauphin Island.
Its been a few weeks since the infamous oil spill and reports of oil washing up here have hit the news sporadically.
While we did find some spots that looked suspiciously like oil soaked driftwood amidst our white sandy beaches, it could also be any number of sea anomalies so I don’t want to make that claim without being an expert.
What was more shocking were the amount of rigs in clear view off the coastline.
I couldn’t even fit them all in one camera shot.
Our dependence on oil is out of control.
This is not the beautiful view I want to give Charlotte when we go to the beach.
There truly has to be a better way.
I also wanted to make a point in saying that being outraged about the spill is ironic if we are not going to pick up after ourselves when we are present in nature.
‘Cleanup’ starts at home with a little common sense…
