With Pensacola beaches closed for swimming (http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=CNG.6c2a6c345110898b9d3218b57843fd7 b.21&show_article=1) because of the oil spill, I thought I'd share some of these pics I took when I visited last fall.

Its so sad. Pensacola is in my neck of the woods, I live about 45 mins away in Niceville and Destin is going to be affected by the spill as well.

Used to live up there, actually lived there three separate times - dad was stationed there in the Navy. I attended both Escambia High(junior year) and Pensacola High (senior year). That entire area is going to be absolutely devastated.

I used to go to college in Lakeland. While there me and a few of my friends went to one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever been to. It was on the western coast of Florida so I'm sure its probably covered in oil now too. The name of it is Fort Desoto beach.

Who else from here is from Florida? And is anyone close enough to the area affected to update on if they see anything going on?

I know Suni is and Jecters. I think Chick is moving here too.

I'm in Orlando and this whole thing as me seriously bummed out.

Here's some updated trajectory reports: http://www.dep.state.fl.us/deepwaterhorizon/

I'm luckily on the east coast of Florida, and about 10 minutes from the beach. I haven't seen any about the oil spill affecting us yet.

I'm really hoping I don't either! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

A friend of mine is vacationing in Destin and she said that their beaches started to show signs of oil yesterday. It's so heartbreaking.

I've been living in Orlando for the past 21 years, came down here to attend UCF and wound up staying here. What part of town are you in, I live near OIA. We could be neighbors and not even know it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

I'm in the Ocoee area about 15-20 min. away from Florida Mall, depending on FL traffic.

Yea it is so devastating -_- I love going there just to walk the beach at night. Is your friend having a good time despite this tragedy?

I live in Niceville, FL which is less than 10 mins away from Destin and my sister lives in Pensacola, FL.

I've been hitting the surf over here in Melbourne this week and the waves have been clean. I doubt that it will affect the Space Coast as much since the current kind of shoots away from us.
