That's interesting. My sister lives near Cocoa Beach and I
have not seen any of the phenomena you describe. What beach
is it that has tar on it?

When outside, there is sometimes the ocean smell, but if you
are inside with the A/C on, as you seem to suggest, there is
no smell.

Two words ... scented candles.
