(AP) PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - President Barack Obama is visiting Florida's Pensacola Beach on the second day of a tour of Gulf states affected by the massive BP oil spill.

Obama strolled the beach Tuesday morning with Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, who is overseeing the government's response to the environmental disaster.

Obama walked to the edge of the emerald green water, then went to a snack shop. As he walked away, a crowd of people behind ropes began chanting "Save our beach, save our beach." It wasn't clear if the president heard them. Obama gets a briefing and makes remarks before heading back to Washington for his prime-time address to the nation from the Oval Office.
