Lots of wave action lately. Tar balls have been washing up on these beaches for many many years.

Makes me think and laugh about how many times we have had to do an emergency hang over the side of the boat.

And for y'alls information, tar balls have NOT always been there. These were near pristine beaches when I was a younger man chasing all the girls on the beach.

Im 45 and lived here all my life. My father had a beach house from about 1970-1985. We always had a bottle of something on the porch to clean the occasional tar ball off our feet before entering the house. I am not saying that we dont still have an oil problem. In fact I'm pretty sure there is still a bunch of it out there, but natural seepage of oil has always been a feature of the Gulf of Mexico.
