Are *all* the local beaches suddenly as tarry as Manresa? I
just got back from a walk there, compulsively picking up the
larger tar splats (some approaching the size of a fried
egg), getting a couple pounds per mile. In the 8 years I've
lived here, it's never been anything like this.

Looks like it's happening again.
