my friend told me he saw oil at the beach IN GALVESTON TEXAS
My friend informed me that he went to Galveston beach a few weeks ago. All the way down by the San Luis pass in south west Galveston, Tx. He said you could SMELL the oil. And he said there was tiny bits of crude in the water.

Amazingly enough after he finished explaining to me about oil HE SAW WITH HIS OWN EYES, he began telling me I was wrong about the upcoming DOOM even in Galveston. And every one around here says "the current will keep the oil away from her!! its not coming here!!" Well I am planning on taking a trip to the beach, possibly tomorrow. And i am going to take a camera with me. There are usually TONS of seaweed on the beaches right about now, piles of the stuff. I have a feeling if there was oil in the water WEEKS ago there will be oil in the seaweed. And possibly birds in the area have fled from the harder hit places to the Galveston area.

As soon as i get pictures you better believe i will be posting them. People need to be shaken vigorously and AWAKEN.
wakeup

burnit



sincerely,
CONCERNED

Nobody til now (that I'm aware of) has said anything about the oil hitting Texas. I'm sure once the hurricanes hit, that will be the turning point.

I went with my family on 7/6/2010 to the Galveston STate Park on the western end of the island. There was a lot of seaweed - almost a foot high along the whole beach, and you had to walk through it and over it to get to the water. Well, the seaweed was black and coated in a watery black substance, with some of the underlying seaweed only brown or green. The seaweed was clumped. When you get past the seaweed, the water has a dark black liquid in it that washed up and hits your ankle. Unlike the beach I remember growing up. You can't see through the water at all. It also STINKS like sewage.

Now, I don't know if its oil or just sewage and a toxic soup. But this is not the Galveston I remember from the 80s and early 90s. This is sick. I was very sad. My kids could not build sandcastles with the water because they couldn't even walk past the seaweed - they got black film on their feet and it stank.

The gulls and pelicans diving for fish also had a dark brownish look to them - the wet ones that is. In other words, the water was not black and sticky, but just black and watery. So nothing "stuck" per se. But it was smelly and gross. So if it is oil, it is very thin and diluted. But it may just be sewage and toxic soup. The entire area is polluted now due to the refining industry and the increased urbanization of the whole area.
