From what I've been reading, they think they may have come over on ships. Not with the wind and current. We skipped our Navarre trip, because I was worried about putting my children's health at risk in that water. (As a parent..I have the right to think of my children first. So, please..no lectures....

expark, it's posts like yours that make me want to see this place even more! The pride and love for your beach is heart warming. AND heart breaking at the same time. I only wish I'd taken my brother in law up on his offer to use his home years ago. My husband and I will see and be able to appreciate...

Hmm..someone commented after my last post but has since deleted it? I'll answer anyways.. The one pic that keeps popping up everywhere that I said was "giant" says "bigger then a dinner plate". And well, it was. But who knows if it was actually from Navarre?? All the sites I saw it on said it was. A...

Well, I'm also super confused and torn :( I get that the news media will often hype things up. But, I'm seeing pics of giant tar balls and reading about oil sheen in the water. Are the pics faked?? I was so worried about bringing my children there, that I canceled our trip two wks ago. Only to decid...

K, thanks. I saw on the weather channel nothing but a huge line of storms from TX to as far up as NY. I'm assuming it's this tropical storm Alex? Because I haven't turned it on today, I'm curious..has the path changed? It's not suppose to come there, is it? I've FINALLY sucked up all my fear, and we...

So, curious..I see rain in the forecast the next 10 days. When it says "scattered" there...does it literally just come and go once in awhile?

Thanks everyone for your continued input on this. Before I was a mom, I had a much different outlook on life. I made many choices without over thinking, or analyzing. Didn't live in fear of the "what ifs". I guess that's why I've been having such a hard time with this. I want to be care free...live ...

electric..I'm not going to argue with you. I'm a FREAK, lol. Seriously..I read the labels on everything, refuse to use chemicals to clean with. But, deep down I know I can't control everything. I had come to grips there could be a slight "risk", when we planned for this trip. And I was trying to mak...

Oh, and I wanted to add that my concern for health risks far exceeds my own family. The bigger picture here is those who live in these areas. Not to mention the threat to people's jobs, and all the marine life. My vacation plans are silly compared to what others are facing.

Thanks everyone! It really helps to see what locals, as well as other parents are feeling about all of this. I think my BIGGEST concerns is the air quality. I've read so much about benzene, and hydrogen sulfide. But, who knows if I'm finding reputable sites? I know there's a lot of news hype, as wel...

What about what you CAN'T see??

Hi everyone! First, I want to tell you I've been "lurking" on this forum for a couple of wks now. What a wonderful on line community you have here. My brother in law has a vacation home in Navarre and graciously offered it to us for a family vacation. Last yr we flew to CA (where I'm from) and it wa...
