June grass update for Walton County July 30th, 2011, AM:
0 on the June Grass Grossness Index. The surf has smoothed out considerably, the water is a beautiful soapstone blue, and I couldn’t find any June Grass aside from a few clumps on the beach. The wind is from the North and it is beautiful and sunny. I saw somebody enjoying some SUP surfing while I was conducting the morning bird survey and there were plenty of interesting birds to see. I know it’s tempting, but please don’t feed the birds. If you are patient you will see a lot of them while enjoying the beach today. I’d also like to tip my hat to the lady who was walking up and down the beach with a bucket and collecting trash. If all the visitors did that for ten minutes the beach would stay a lot cleaner.
If there isn’t a current June Grass report up on this site I suggest checking the link to local beach cams on the left side of this page. They can often give you an idea of what the water is like.
PLEASE ENJOY THE BEACH RESPONSIBLY!
