    BP didn't bring people in to do this stuff. Locals must have been hired and they did the dirty work. Why aren't the locals the ones blowing the whistle.

    This East Coast beach has not been worked over by cleanup crews, the nature of the oil is to work it's way under the sands, not sure if it is the additive virus that makes for 40% more oil retrievable that was said pumped into the well prior to blowout/gusher, or the use of Corexit.

    August 14, These were taken during a very low tide....

    Where oil is not as visible does not mean it is not there, just lower consecrations that are not as visible. PAH's are everywhere on the beaches.
    When I took my black-light out to this site the sand illuminated orange in various densities and even the waters I held the light of glowed as the oil was mixed in it in the tiniest of particles. I found this to be true in the Halifax river also as well as the shores there.

  • Great photo's xdrfox.

    I have never seen an alive crab before, and I'm so pleased to have seen this one earlier, and again now.

    Although it is painful to know that he is dying, I cannot help but smile at that beautiful little face and huge eyes. His shell even makes it appear as though he has rolled-up-sleeves above his foremost claws.

    Thanks for catching that glimpse for us.

    Did you notice the remnants of fish gills in that and the above photo as well. Normally one can not get within 10 yards of these ghost crabs and they are very fast and illusive, but many like this one I came across were dazed and confused, toxins, seemed they were sick and knew it, and reaching out for help !
