The beaches in Pensacola were very clean — no smell- no tar — no oil. But where is the oil? a lot of it has been mixed into the Gulf of Mexico along with dispersant and that may not be a something you would want to be immersed in. The coast guard has done an incredible job of keeping the beaches in Pensacola looking good, The beach looks beautiful and the water smells great but some water may be clean and other water may not. You can’t draw a line in water. once the crude is mixed in, is it visible? i will follow up to find out what is in the water — where is the bulk of the crude, and where will the toxic chemicals end up. in our food, our bodies?
