Watery Wednesday: No Oil

This little boy was so cute staring at the water lapping ashore on Siesta Key Beach and trying to decide if he should dip his purple bucket in the Gulf of Mexico.  Sarasota beaches are still oil free, thankfully.  The Parks Department is reporting that more people are enjoying the beaches here this year than last.  The bump could be the result of stay-cationers (Floridians staying in Florida for vacation) or it could be people who planned trips to Louisiana, Alabama and the Panhandle who are now coming here.  Check out more Watery Wednesday images here.

Very sweet day-at-the-beach photo! Brings back good summer memories. Happy to know it's an oil free beach.

The expression on the boy's face is priceless. Cool shot. So glad you've no oil there. Things don't look good, though.

That is certainly good news for now anyway!

Oh how cute and so much fun. You've captured shadow shots and reflections as well. I'm glad the spot is oil free at least for now.

Thanks for your visit on VDP!

Some decisions in life are harder than others! ;-)I'm glad the oil spill hasn't reached Sarasota.

I hope the oil never reaches Sarasota. So did the little boy ever put his pail in the water?

Good question, Clueless! Not when I was watching him. He and his little brother ended up flopping down and sitting in the water. All still very cute -- and a great way to cool off.

He is certainly enjoying the great weather. It's great that the water is just there if you want to get wet!
