Last week I had to travel down to the Gulf Coast for work. It didn’t go unnoticed that it was the anniversary of the oil spill. When I asked the office manager to make a hotel reservation, I was surprised to find out that I was going to be staying at the same hotel where The General stayed for the first month of Deep Water Horizon. I’ve been really missing The General lately but this just made it infinitely worse. And to add to my misery I was down there alone. Last year I was able to visit The General and I was able to have our dog with us. It was very lonely.
It was nice to see the beach though and know that the tourism industry is improving.
