Jody Carter, background left, and Amber Newberry of Flint, Mich., enjoy the gulf of Mexico, after driving 24 hours straight to Florida, despite the presence of dead fish and algae on the beach as a result of a red tide outbreak in the area recently. Amber's mom, Rhonda, who was on the beach, said that they weren't bothered by a few dead fish. 'we're used to Lake Michigan, it smells worse,' Rhonda said.  Area waters could develop dead zones if severe red tides continue throughout the summer.
