A fist-sized tar ball wrapped in seaweed rests on the typically white sandy beaches of Fort Pickett State Park near Pensacola. One stretch of beach was particularly covered with the unattractive mix of weathered oil and seaweed. Naples Fire Chief Steve McInerny who visited the beach on Thursday said he dreads the thought of this substance washing up on Naples beaches. Photographedf July 08, 2010. Aaron Hale/Staff
