June Grass Update for Walton County 6/8/13:AM

June grass update for Walton County 6/8/13:AM

on the June Grass Grossness Index. 

I went down to the beach just now, even though the Gulf sounded angry. Actually the waves weren’t especially big. Perhaps the cool still air amplified the sound of the surf breaking on the beach. The water is still murky from the storm but no sign of June grass. The waves are about the right size for boogie boarding right now. I stuck my feet in the water and it’s currently warmer than the air. I saw a flock of ibises, a squirrel, and a (harmless) corn snake crossing the path on the way down to the beach. Keep in mind that it is illegal to kill snakes on public lands in Florida!

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.

  1. Headed to waterscape from cincinnati . Hope the june grass stays away. We had it 2 summers ago in pcb and didnt really get in the ocean because of the grass. Thank you so much for your site. Ive been checking everyday and I couldnt be more excited to visit what looks to be beautiful beaches. Fingers crossed for no grass and great weather. Do you have a rough guess of ocean temp?
