About 15 odd years ago I visited Mustang Island, a barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico west of Galveston, Texas. It had broad beaches with fine white sand and clear greenish water, very similar to our beaches here in SW FL with a couple of noteworthy exceptions: A prevailng stench of kerosene was everywhere and there were many black globs on the sand running well up the beach. I've always assumed these to be byproducts of the oil rigs that loomed right off shore.
