Gulf Shores, AL – - Small gobs of reddish brown oil washed
up in the surf for the first time in Gulf Shores, Ala., on Friday

hung in the breeze at the public beach.

husband, says she could smell the oil, and the odor was burning her
The Powells say they planned to return to the beach later this
summer, but now they're not sure they want to come back.
