Butch (another super commentor): reports:
“Okaloosa Island between beach access 2-4. Small amount of June grass in water. Visibility in water is still 1-2 feet”
Me again: Seems to be some sargassum on the beach
Jamey’s (our super-commentor) daughter thoughtfully sent us this early season pic:
Another update on Crystal Beach conditions: “No June Grass at all. Grossness index is zero. Slight amount of seaweed in the water. Surf is high. Some surfers in the water. Red flags flying.“
A longtime reader reports: “ Beautiful day at Crystal Beach in the Destin area. Grossness index is zero. Water is fantastic!”
A beach-goer writes:
Labor day 2018 Pricess beach Okaloosa island. Very few specs of vegetation.
Me again: “vegetation” is an excellent term to use if you want to submit oics but don’t know if you’re looking at June grass.
MT sent us another update (which we greatly appreciate because participation has been pretty low on the JGR this year):
My 2 cents: when the sky looks like that get off the beach! Lightning in FL is no joke!
MT sends us these pics:
At least the June grass appears to be dying, ugh.
