Shot from this morning of long strips of heavy crude on the northern beach of Pelican Island in Galveston Bay and not a single clean up worker or crew in sight. Pelican Island sits just north of the Galveston Island, and its northernmost tip is about a mile from the spill. With "one of the nation's busiest seaports" shut down since Saturday and economic costs mounting by the hour, why is there not a soul in sight cleaning up Pelican Island? According to the photographer, a climate journalist and veteran from Houston: "It's probably because no one in the media knows about this. It's tough to access." Michael kayaked in from the entrance of Seawolf park, a popular tourist destination about 2 miles away on the easternmost point of Pelican Island.
