Have you Seen Any of These Pictures of the Oil Spill?

I grew up by the ocean at the Jersey Shore! I love the water, the beach, the sun...
These pictures are from the Gulf Coast from the Blog Bumpkin on a Swing. Her husband is a Captain and has been working to help clean up the oil spill. They have a lot of good information on their blog. He has a separate link to his posts.

Please pray for the clean up and all the people who have been effected economically.
Please pray that they can cap the well.
Continue to buy gas at BP because they are small business owners who are not at fault for the spill. It BP goes bankrupt their obligations will not be met.
Consider a vacation to the Gulf.
We at the Jersey Shore stand with you. As we enjoy the beautiful ocean, let's not forget those who are suffering.

Thanks! Jennifer aka Gigi
