What a very sad sight we faced when going on to the beach at Boca Grande yesterday having looked forward to it for the past few months. We have been regular visitors to this part of the world and that beach for nearly twenty years. We have played with our children and our grandchildren on that beach and it held wonderful memories for us as the last place my late mother in law visited whilst here with us in 2008 and the beach where our son proposed to his soon to be wife last December. What wonderful memories all shattered by the sights we saw yesterday.
Why, why, why is the beach in Boca Grande still such a mess? Why would any local authority be taking so long to rectify the situation? We have lived for over thirty years close to the beaches in Cornwall England, glorious sandy beaches on the Atlantic coast and from time to time we have experience deposits on our beaches but these have always been dealt with immediately and we are sure that this would have been the case if we had experience the same fate as Boca Grande has. The ugly site of rotting and decaying fish and the rancid smell has shattered our illusions and we are just pleased that our love ones are not with us on this trip to witness the sad and depressing site.
