I wrote a post yesterday about Southwest's new service to Northwest Florida, which begins Sunday. A reader, lamenting the oil spill in the Gulf, asked about the condition of those beaches. So earlier today I made a quick call to Dan Rowe, the President/CEO of the Panama City Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau, and he said the good news is that the beaches are beautiful today. And the outlook is positive. They're getting frequent reports from NOAA and so far, nothing indicates the spill moving in their direction - for now.
