I grew up on the Gulf of Mexico coast in Southern Florida. It has been horrible and scary to see what is happening and to read about what might happen as a result of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Additionally, it has been horrible to see all of the oil-covered birds, hear about endangered baby whales being found dead and endangered sea turtles being burned to death, oil-filled waves and water, oil rain, and potentially catastrophic toxic rain.

Perhaps longing for a time when the Gulf of Mexico seemed pure and clean, or just wanting to admire the beauty of the Gulf and Gulf beaches again, I decided to make this week’s 10 Friday Photos post a post on beautiful Gulf of Mexico beach photos. Hope you like what I found and posted below.
