I'm pleased to report there still is NO OIL on any of the beaches here in the Sunshine State. News reports of tar balls from the Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico washing ashore in Key West were wrong. There are thousands of miles of pristine beaches in Florida, including Lido Beach, where this photo was taken. The seagulls are swooping so close to these beachgoers because the family was feeding them Cheetos (of all things). I would discourage you from feeding birds on the beach. They're not used to being hand fed by people and they can become quite pesky.
