Some reliable local news sources are:[SIZE=2]The Sunherald[/S]WLOX[/SE=2]The Gulf Coast News[/SIZE]


[SIZE=2]I am glad that I have been a MS Gulf Coast photo-nut since 2006. At least I will have photos posted several places online that I can look at to remember how things were before the oil spill. It was time well invested for me.[/SIZE]

    Following are some of my Beach Experience Before The 4th of July, 2010 and after Yesterday, the 7th of July.[/[SIZE=2][/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]The first photos I will share with you are of un-named people simply enjoying fishing and other water sports. If the photos are close up, I have their permission to post.Unfortunately, you can't get the whole picture because you will be unable to hear the Laughing gulls and the sounds of other water fowl, nor can you hear the mullet jumping and feel the breeze on your face. The most remarkable aspect to me is the mix of people who utilize the beach, piers, and jetty's. [/ZE]

[SIZE=2]Awhile back I began calling my beach and pier walks -- Promenades, as confirmed by this definition found in The Free Dicionary by Farlex (click following for actual source):

n promenade [proməˈnaːd, (American ) -ˈneid] (abbreviationpromprom) a level road for the public to walk along, usually beside the sea They went for a walk along the promenade.


Once I began the Promenades, I could not stop the activity until it became too cold in the winter. One simply could not visit a pier and find anyone in a sour mood. The faces I saw, whether young, elder, or in between, whether attractive or plain, no matter what color or origninal nationality, no matter whether short, tall, slim, or packing a few pounds--were calm, friendly, always a ready smile and ready for a quick chat. I soaked in their enjoyment of the time and place. I soaked in their relaxed bearing. At this time and place, no matter who they are, no matter where they have been, or what they have done--there was a lack of "guardedness" bordering on vulnerability. Here are some of my favorite Pre-BP Spill photos.

Depending on the day we have people enjoying a variety of water sports including wind surfing and kite flying.
