COCOA BEACH, Fla. (FOX 35 ORLANDO) - It’s baaaaaaack.
Seaweed. Or what marine-life scientists call sargassum. It’s inundating Cocoa Beach.
And watch where you step, the Portuguese Man of War come ashore with it.
Every May the beaches get a coating of the stuff.
Eventually the tide will take it back out, but in the meantime, Belinda and Alanna Pino are determined to get some beach time in.
They’re visiting Cocoa Beach through Sunday.
“We come to the beach for the sun and the water, and this is just an extra, it’s just different,” Belinda Pino said.
“Lots of people are kicking it, stepping over it, and jumping, I guess because it feels gross for them,” said Alana Pino.
