When sea water evaporates does it carry small amounts of salt into the atmosphere?

I’m interested to know, because we live near the beach and all the metal on the outside of our house is corroded. My dad says it was from the wind picking up spray from the surf, but I’m not so sure.

Where does water vapor go/what does the sun do?

For instance, coastal areas are often foggy in the morning. Then the sun “burns it off”. Where does the moisture go? I’m curious of the star’s (i.e. Sun) influence on evaporation effects.
