The Beaches

It seems our beautiful Gulf beaches, incluing our very own Clearwater Beach have become inundated with unwelcomed toxic algae [red tide] which is killing fish and emitting toxic vapors throughout the area. The noxious vapors that even Gulf breezes can't dissipate can at times be staggering

This years [red tide] is more widespread and seemingly more intense than it's been in previous years. A friend went diving recently and was heartbroken to find that [red tide] had wiped out life on the bottom of the Gulf. A very sad situation..

Hopefully this will soon dissipate and life on our beautiful beaches will return to normal.
