Timing is not on Jimmy Buffett's side.

The "Margaritaville" singer is synonymous with the white-sand beaches along the Gulf Coast that are now being fouled by leaked oil. He's planning to open a hotel in Pensacola Beach, Fla., in two weeks.

He took a walk Saturday along the beach with Fla. Gov. Charlie Crist and noted that his favorite memories of the area are of sunsets in the fall.

He says he wants people in the area to know that he's there for them. He says if he's good for anything, it's "helping people forget their troubles for a couple of hours."

He says the people of the Florida Panhandle will get through the crisis together.
