RED TIDE, sketchbook watercolor, DMannion

Day 9 of 30/30

Had planned to spend the morning on the beach painting, but was only able to do a couple of sketches.  Red tide, since October 2017 is still horrendous!  Dead fish floating out toward the horizon.  Our usual clear water, Carribean blue is still the color of dark brewed coffee.  Counted less than a dozen birds and the same amount of tourists.  Burning eyes and itchy throat... really stinks... so sad.
