June Grass Update for Walton County 6/20/13:PM

June grass update for Walton County 6/20/13:PM

0-1 on the June Grass Grossness Index. 

Very similar conditions to yesterday but the June grass was even more sparse. There were some schools of small (1/2″) fish in the water and I found a stingray about the size of a medium pizza right up by the beach. Mind your feet! Stingrays don’t “attack” people but they will sting you with their venomous barbs if you step on them because they think you are trying to eat them. Stingrays are actually a favorite food of tiger sharks. So, no reason to fear stingrays but be mindful and shuffle your feet if you think they are around. They are actually really fun to see in the water! Again I had to get out of the water because of a thunderstorm, right when I had just found the ray and wanted to watch it! Exercise common sense in regard to electrical storms!

At the time this report was made the beach flags were yellow and purple, but check them again before you head to the beach. In Walton County you can text “beachflag” to 67463*

I would love it if you would share your personal June Grass and beach condition reports on the Most Recent June Grass Sightings & Beach Conditions page, to further improve the June Grass Report. 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.
