As I have taken part in the effort to help keep the beach clean in our area, I can tell you the sandy part of the beach is great. Sure a few tarballs hit every now and then, but its really not a big deal. I spent all summer in the water with no ill effects. I will say, however, the oil did not just simply dissappear. It is out there under the surface, mostly on the bottom due to the chemicals put on it. I hope the sealife is resiliant enough to withstand what is out there.

I am in the Fort Myers area but am originally from Pensacola Beach. I went up there in June the week before the oil showed up for its breif visit and it was wonderful. Water was as it has always been, clear blue and warm. The sand was sparkly white and soft as powder Saw a group of stingrays and just stayed all day. It is so worth a visit if you have the chance

wow... thats a great post. Most of Florida's economy relies on the "Yankees". For proof, you can see how many locals were hurt by the oil spill.

I was in PCB in July and the beaches there were clean except for the seaweed that is always there.

I live in Pensacola and we did a sheets of oil come up on the beaches. It was only a couple of times, but it was bad. I never saw it personally but saw pictures.

The first 10 or 15 feet of the beach closest to the water looked like it had been paved with road asphalt.

Just wanted to add an update...

Beaches are all better. No oil anymore. Come visit Pensacola Beach. It is perfect.
