The oil well has been capped! That is wonderful news. Now we hope and pray it holds till the second relief well is in place to stop it for good. I have extremely mixed emotions over this. I am ecstatic that it is capped, but very sad thinking about the damage it has already done. But it is done. And we have to figure out a way to deal will what has been dealt to us. So, I suppose we will. I do know that we took a ride along the coast yesterday and it was a breathtaking as ever.
I hope we see more lazy summer scenes like this in the future...

and not so much of this...
...or this. The camera crews are on us like flies to honey.
I want to see just people on the beach. People there for fun and relaxation.
