It’s August. Who’s blogging at the beach? Alas, not NotionsCapital, though we drive past Beach Drive in Washington’s Rock Creek Park every now and then.
If you are loading the longboards in the woodie or the kiddies in the econo-box, the Natural Resources Defense Council has a new water quality ratings ratings map of U.S. beaches. The Surfrider Foundation also has an annual State of the Beach Report for U.S. states. “Dr. Beach,” Stephen P. Leatherman, professor of environmental studies at Florida International University, has issued his America’s Best Beaches 2008 list, with photos. And the folks at NOAA have an on-line Coastal Water Temperature Guide.
Enjoy. Lucky dogs.
