Eye Witness Account From Sunset Beach, Florida:

"Yesterday, May 1, 2010, I went swimming at sunset beach in Pinellas County, Florida. there was plenty of sun, sand, wind and surf. I was there from 11:30 in the morning until around 4:00 pm. Several times I would get a strong smell of plastic. The first time I thought that it was from my goggles but I don't ever remember that happening before. The next time I wasn't even wearing my goggles."
