NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Some Southern California beaches are getting gooed.

The Orange County Register says balls of tar have been washing up at Newport and Huntington beaches in the past few days.

The balls in Huntington Beach are about 2 inches in diameter.

Newport Beach lifeguard Battalion Chief Brent Jacobsen says the tar ranges from the size of a quarter to the size of a hand.

He says it's from natural offshore seepage - not an oil spill.

To get rid of tar on feet, Jacobsen says try a little mineral oil or baby oil.
