30 Dec 2020: Finding Clarity in 2020

This year something remarkable happened. The bay became crystal clear. I can stand on the surrounding boardwalk and see the bottom. I can go to the end of a dock and see even deeper to the ocean floor. I can see the eel grass, the schools of minnows, the stingrays and the scatterings of shells. I’m no marine biologist, but it is a safe assumption that this is a COVID-related occurrence. Less industry, fewer cars, less runoff, less leaky rental boat traffic have set the stage for a remarkable comeback for a bay I never realized was not existing at its full potential.
