Oil Spill Updates from Perdido Key

I went out to the beach yesterday afternoon to check on a few of our condos and took a couple short videos.  I also snapped a couple pictures.  Please excuse the quaility as it was with my blackberry, because I had not planned on it prior to leaving the office. Several guests were asking what the beaches looked like, because they had heard Perdido Key on the news.  Luckily thing are still nice out.  Conditions may change, but here are a few visual aids for peace-of-mind. Here's another video... Continue reading

Oil Spill Travel Updates from Perdido Key, Florida con't

Well my wife and I have a 5 year old daughter and, although I have not seen any oil slick type substance on the beach or in the water, when we recently went to the beach we played in the sand, threw a frisbee, built an uneven sandcastle and played tag while mom laid out on a beach towel.

What about the Beaches?

The beaches have not been shut down and I do not expected them to be shut down.  However, several of out guests have called to ask questions such as, "what about the beaches? are the closed? who makes that call?"  I pulled the answers from the Escambia county Health Department Website (ref. http://escambiahealth.com/recent_hot_topics/2010/oil_spill.htm) Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Incident Avoiding Negative Health Impacts At this time, there are no indications of any health risks to Floridians due to the Deepwater Horizon incident. Health officials have advised residents experiencing symptoms from possible odors (11.8kb; pdf) .
