Two Rhode Island transplants have settled here in Northwest Florida on Escambia Bay. In Rhode Island, we spent most of our summers and fall days sailing the waters of Narragansett Bay, Block Island Sound and Buzzards Bay. We are so delighted to have found another Bay to enjoy.

SAY A LITTLE PRAYER
It is a curious situation that the sea, from which life first arose, should now be threatened by the activities of one form of that life. ~Rachel Carson
As the days go on and the oil spewing out into the Gulf is left uncapped, tensions and anxieties are running high here in the Panhandle. Say a little prayer that a solution is found soon before our beautiful beaches and wildlife and marine life are destroyed. Remember all of our citizens that may lose their jobs and businesses because of this tragedy.
