This news is a few weeks old now, but it's still depressing and the fall out for the local wildlife continues to manifest.
Refugio is a beautiful little beach, about 40 minutes of Santa Barbara with a perfect little right hand point wave. It's tucked away and unspoilt, away from the urbanisation of much of SoCal. It's one of the places ive been looking forward to returning to in a few weeks time although it remains to be seen if thats going to be a possibility. With all the dollars that oil brings into the state comes a responsibility to the environment. It apears someone dropped the ball on this one!
