We filmed today in Destiny by the Sea. The weather is perfect and the sand and water look impeccable. Saw a few BP workers sifting through the sand looking for tar chips, but didn’t seem to be finding anything. Attached is the NOAA map and today’s video.

Allyssa Smith Share

Sorry for the camera work in the first few seconds. We filmed today from Destiny by the Sea. The rain has subsided and the weather is gorgeous. There were many people out on the beach and in the water today. It was one of the busiest days of the summer so far. According to NOAA the east end of the oil slick will be in middle Mississippi. Far, Far from our Destin beaches. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApaPRXvyMUs]

Beach Update 7/2

Allyssa Smith Share

Today is July 2nd. We filmed at 11am in Miramar Beach – at 2 of our rentals: Lune Lac & Caribbean Paradise. After several days of heavy rain from the tropical storm Alex, we have a beautiful, clear day! The water is an amazing teal color and really clear. We went to 3 beaches today and there were absolutely NO TARBALLS washing up! The beaches are beautiful. A lot of people are on the beach and in the water.

Destin Beach Update 6/30 from Five Star Beach Properties

Allyssa Smith Share

Here is the latest video update from Five Star Beach Properties. This video was filmed at approximately 3:00 in Miramar Beach by Lune Lac and Paradis. It’s been raining all day today, but we filmed during a break. We walked a 100 yard stretch of beach. The water was very clear especially after a storm. We saw a total of 3 small tar balls on a 100 yard stretch of beach. We really had to look hard to find them. Hopefully we will see some sun tomorrow! youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ef0IPwFaH4Y

There are NO TAR BALLS or OIL in sight! Today is June 28th. We have filmed in Miramar Beach at about 3pm in front of Seascape (close to Whale’s Tale Restaurant). We have had an overcast day today, with scattered rain all day. The ocean is rough and there is a red flag out. This hasn’t kept people away from the beach or the water, though! The water is a beautiful aqua color and there is almost no June grass visible. There is also NO TAR BALLS or OIL in

Today is June 24th. We have filmed at Crab Trap / Destiny by the Sea at about 9:30am. It is going to be another clear, very warm day. There have been some small, pebble-sized weathered tar balls that have been spotted. These can be easily removed from the beach. The county is well prepared and have already dispatched beach cleanup crews. All the beaches and water are open. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOASTjfpZWw]
