Pensacola Beach Cyberspace Lifeguard Service

Check out the new web site inaugurated by Pensacola Beach lifeguards. It's titled, appropriately enough,

The site includes daily flag warnings about surf conditions... weather... underwater wildlife that can sting you, and some graphic pictures of tenderized skin found on that familiar beach specie, homosunburnus. It looks like there's more to come, too.

In addition to all that, there's a little history about life guarding on Pensacola Beach; a few old pictures for the moment, not much else.

No matter if someone seems to have taken an air-brush to all those bad years, before former residents' SRIA board member Don Ayres almost single-handedly dragged the agency, kicking and screaming, into professionalizing the life guard service. That was then; this is now.

And everyone should thank goodness for that. Thanks to Don, too!
