June Grass Update Middle of Memorial Day Weekend

June grass update for Walton County 5/26/13:AM

on the June Grass Grossness Index. 

While I was having my morning bike ride I stopped at the beach to have a look around. The water looks great! Small waves with a North wind and very clear. There were a lot of surf fishermen, in about chest deep water around the first sandbar, who seemed to be having a good time. I didn’t stick my feet in but the water must be nice if they were out in it so early, especially since the air was nice and cool last night. For the birdwatchers: I saw a ruddy turnstone at the beach. There was also a gentleman enjoying some early morning metal detecting on the sand.  I also stopped by one of the dune lakes on my ride and the fishermen there were catching 1-2.5 pound bass, so if you don’t feel like fighting the crowds at the beach today the dune lakes could be a fun option.

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

I would love it if you would share your personal June Grass and beach condition reports in the comments section. It would also be great if you left a comment to tell me where you’re traveling from to visit 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.
