    Perdido Pass Booms

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     anttwerrp's father took these photos on June 18, around 12 p.m. anttwerrp's family has lived in the Perdido Beach and Orange Beach area for over 20 years and he said, 'The Perdido and Orange Beach community is very depressed over the condition of our beaches and the fact that this oil has been allowed to infect our wildlife and destroy beautiful white beaches.'
    - ccostello3, CNN iReport producer

    This is a more permanent boom going in across Perdido Pass.  I already knew it would be a while before i could get back into the water and enjoy it.  However just seeing this boom going in tells me just how long it really is going to be.  I enjoy freediving and scuba diving, but what will be left after this?   Will my gulf ever be the same?
