Letters from Dauphin Island Lovers re: BP Oil Spill
I lived on Dauphin Island Parkway all my life, about 20
minutes from the Island. I play steel drum music in restaurants on the
Gulf Coast, and entertainment will be the first to go.
When my dad was alive we used to take the boat down for the Alabama Deep
Sea Fishing Rodeo. At first we stayed in the campground. Great times as
a kid. As we got older my dad started to rent houses. One rodeo, my dad
was diagnosed with lung cancer. He made the doctor reschedule the
surgery until after the Rodeo! We had the best summer ever. He beat it
for 25 years, then he got it in the other lung and died from that. So he
is a part of Dauphin Island to us. Let's take care of our beaches.
