Crazy as it sounds we have fresh tarballs washing in on this onshore flow that developed today. They were dotting the beach every 10-15 feet in Perdido Key, FL. This is the exact location where we water tested on 11-4-2010. Photos included.

This is smaller Quarter Sized Tarball, what worries me about this one is that it is very black and soft (not weathered at all). Therefore concievably it could be more toxic.

Larger Red Weathered Tarball size of a Dollar Coin. My size 10.5 footprint is next to it.
