Nothing like a little summer sun and letting the kids run through tar balls in the sand.

What’s more sad and shocking about this YouTube clip, filmed Wednesday at a beach in Destin, Fla. — the tar balls and globs of oil darkening the pristine sand, or the parents letting their kids go for a swim in it? The beach remained open despite the oil washing up on shore, but actually going for a dip seems like a questionable decision.

According to WALB, workers continue to clean up the beach as oil comes ashore.
