Once again I could quote alot of spill updates, how many gallons are being contained but I think we all want to know how and if Anna Maria island has been affected by the Deep Water Oil Spill. The answer continues to be NO. About a week ago I admitted that I smelled an odd odor just in the mornings. It smelled more similar to a faint forest fire than any oil smell. Just the two mornings. No smell since which would more closely confirm that Tropicana was burning orange peels for live stock feed. There is No oil smell on or near Anna Maria Island.
My wife and son hit the beach again yesterday. We took some more video of the wonderful white beaches of Anna Maria Island. Take a look. Only oil on the beach today was sun tan oil!
Let me know if you have any additional questions or would like to see something specific. Of course another great resource is the LIVE video feed of the Bradenton Beach on Anna Maria Island.
