Whaddaya Know: Gulf Coast Beaches aren't All Closed

"Gulf Coast beaches update"
Travel, CNN (July 1, 2010)

"As Americans gear up for the Fourth of July weekend, coastal areas affected by the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico are working hard to keep beach-bound travelers informed.

"Here are some of the latest updates from destinations affected by the oil disaster:

"Northwest Florida

"Waters east of the Pensacola Beach fishing pier and on the north side of Santa Rosa Island along the Santa Rosa Sound remain open...."

There's a fair amount of detail in the CNN article: I think the best idea would be to call ahead to see if the spot you're planning to visit is open, and what conditions are like there.

It's not just about Florida: Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Gulf islands are discussed, too. Nothing about Texas beaches: but the last I checked, which was a while ago, they were mostly unaffected.

Me? I'm staying where I am, here in central Minnesota.
