Anna Maria Island shows no effect of the ongoing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The warm temperatures of the Gulf, sunshine and beautiful white beaches invite to a perfect summer getaway.
The latest projection of the NOAA are showing that our area has a very low risk, about 1 – 20 % – of seeing any oil on our shores. Computer models estimate the potential threat to US coastlines until a relief well will successfully stop the flow.
I spent 4th of July at the Sandbar and was lucky enough to watch the great fireworks on 4th of July and snapped the picture below. The Anna Maria Island Beach is still beautiful. No oil here!
