Default Black specks in my s300 viewfinder

I went boating a while back and took my s300 along. The driver decided to dodge some waves and it got really windy aboard.

Once we were back on land I noticed tiny black specks in my viewfinder. Inside it. I don't really mind because I always use the LCD screen on the back, but am curious as to how the specks may have gotten in there.

Any insight will be greatly appreciated, thanks.

A bit strange. I wonder a bit of that black foam rubber they use inside the cameras to make them light tight has broken off.

I live in the tropics and can get mould in my lenses etc if they are not stored right. This can look like black specks.

No other ideas

Hmm... that's pretty interesting. I never would have thought of that. Thanks! I'll look into it.
