On my last visit (http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/756...) I wasn't sure if what I seen was oil, but I'm sure now that both that spotting and this spotting is oil. The tide was lower than last time and there was this black border between clean beach and the water. Speckled in the streaks of black are these black and brown balls of what smells like asphalt. It is sticky but the sand ball falls apart fairly easily. I think the black streaks are these balls of oil breaking apart. From Elmer's Island to Grand Isle was like this. Along with tons of dead jelly fish, a dead pelican, and what I believe is a dead gull. However I do not know what caused the death of these critters.
