Sure, it’s scary.
Who wants to book a trip to the beach – particularly in Northwest Florida – when you’re not sure how the oil-spill is affecting the shores? Reading reports and even chatting with people on the phone about the condition of the beaches is peachy, but wouldn’t it be better if you could see the sea for yourself?
Turns out you can. Live beach webcams have become about as common as sandals, like this one provided by the Holiday Inn Resort in Panama City Beach. One glimpse at the white sand and emerald-tinted waters and I’ll bet my sunscreen you’ll be splashing into town before the next high tide.
If you’re interested in another Sunshine State destination, check out this VISIT FLORIDA site dedicated to the oil spill. There, you’ll not only find the most current conditions of the beaches, but also links to visitor’s services in every corner of the state – most of which have webcams, too.
It would be sad as a day without sunshine to get scared out of your summer vacation!
