I AM UPSET WITH MY COUNTY. These county leaders are ignoring to problems around the state. Some commissioners feel they know it all. People are loosing their jobs and businesses down south. I remember when Nassau Harbor was crystal clear. No more! The only place to go is North where the effluent will not decay.

I think the majority of the effluent you mentioned is actually coming FROM the County commissioners. I’m sure that if they moved north, they would continue to decay. :(

Well here it is, the middle of June and no Red Tide yet (although the blue/green stuff is appearing elsewhere. I’m keeping the boat close to readiness just in case the Admiral says we gotta go. Anybody suffering from the blue/green stuff?

Guess what’s creeping up the coast in October 2019?!

Uh oh. Here it comes again. I’ve been warned by my Admiral to have the boat ready to abandon the suncoast area when she returns from a 9 day Caribbean cruise on 11-23.

Seems pretty persistent. Maybe time to move on? I thought the red tide was more a summer thing, but guess not.

Nah. Worst situations have been late Aug. and sometimes through March. Even then, it sometimes hangs around in lesser amounts for as much as 18 months. We last saw it in April of this year. Had six fairly clean (but hot) months.

I have been receiving updates from the state. At least DeSantis is acknowledging there is a problem and looking for a solution. Indian River County has a problem with the lagoon and it is going to cost millions to clean up. While this is going on the City of St. Augustine and St. Johns County are still dumping contaminated rain water from the roads into the waterways. You can led a politician to the problem and they still say "What problem?". According to a local biologist, people cause pollution. I would like to cr.p in his back yard.
