Travel: Orange Beach, Alabama

One of many jellyfish that were washed up on shore.

Last week I found myself on the beach in Alabama. A beautiful beach. The same beach that experienced the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the largest in history. Scientists are still studying the long term effects that the Deepwater Horizon explosion will have on marine life. With the 2 year anniversary of the spill coming up on April 20th I wonder what we’ve learned? Have we changed because of this tragedy? Or have we simply gone back to business as usual now that everything appears to look fine? As I walked the beach each morning at sunrise, I  wondered…what will we know about all of this 10 years from now?
