June Grass Update

June grass update for Walton County 7/6/12:PM

on the June Grass Grossness Index. 

I apologize for the lack of reports. I have not been well, which put me a little behind at work, plus I was taking a fishing workshop three evenings a week for two weeks, then Tropical Storm Debby and other bad weather have kept me off the beach.

However, I have just popped down to the beach for a few minutes and it is shaping up to be a lovely day. The storm this morning seems to have swept the June Grass away…for now. The water is a bit cool, but very nice, and a little choppy. The UV Index is 9, so use caution in that regard.

This photo nicely illustrates how the ocean “renourishes” the beach all by itself, naturally, without any interference. Have a look at past, even recent, photos of this bench.

At the time this report was made the beach flags were yellow and purple, but check them again before you head to the beach.

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. It is also important to “Know Before You Go” and check local beach flags. They are updated twice daily at 9:30am and 1:30pm.

PLEASE ENJOY THE BEACH RESPONSIBLY!
