Clearly the DR government wants to turn a blind eye to this situation and unfortunately the inhabitants of Cabarete will have to pay for it.
    Sad!
    He was more concerned with the holiday party he had to go to.

    Spent 4 + hours today on the beach walking/swiming and playing from Ocean One area to the restaurant/bar areas with a granddaughter aged 3 1/2 and there was never a worry about a drop of oil nor was there a drop of oil in sight.

    Walked some of the beaches between Cabarete and Sosua with the dogs - no oil on shoes or paws - nada!

    Yesterday, walked along beach southeast from Orilla del Mar for almost an hour, and only saw a few visible dark patches among seaweed washed up on shore, but nothing to be alarmed about.

    Default oil spill

    I've walked along the beach west of Cabarete, starting at Ocean Dream and going past Nanny Estates to the next beach, several times in the past couple of days. My family has been kitesailing, and they have not seen any evidence of oil in the water. I've had a couple of patches of that thick oily stuff on the bottom of my feet twice in the past two days though, necessitating diluted bleach to scrub it off. It's a nuisance to get it on your feet, but that's the only visible evidence of any oil spill.
