June Grass Update for Walton County 6/7/13:AM

June grass update for Walton County: Stallworth Public Access to Coffeen Preserve 6/7/13:AM

on the June Grass Grossness Index. 

The Gulf was much calmer this morning than it has been all week and the water was reopened on a yellow flag. The water was murky from the storm surge but I didn’t spot any june grass. The storm surge brought a lot of sargassum onto the beach, all the way up to the dune line, and it is a bit stinky. It will probably only get stinkier as the hot weather persists. Baby shorebirds are hatching so be careful where you step! I saw a lot of ghost crabs this morning along with least terns and a bunch of gulls.

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.

PLEASE ENJOY THE BEACH RESPONSIBLY!
