Drill baby, drill
















Yesterday we sailed through some platforms of the Dos Cuadras Offshore Oil Field. These are the rigs involved in the infamous 1969 spill. That spill turned public opinion against offshore drilling in California and later in other states.

Below we have an aerial view of the well blow out.


There is a good photo history here.

They are still drilling here bordering a National Marine Sanctuary and Channel Islands National Park.
