June Grass Update for Walton County 6/22/13:AM

June grass update for Walton County 6/22/13:AM

0-2 on the June Grass Grossness Index. 

After getting stung repeatedly last night and seeing the big clouds of June grass waiting just off the beach I didn’t think I’d be going in the water today. However, while I was riding my bike early this morning I realized the wind was coming from NNE. I figured it had probably, temporarily, pushed the jellies and June grass offshore so I went for a swim. The water was nice with small waves good for boogie boarding,  and just a little June grass. It should be a beautiful beach day!

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.

PLEASE ENJOY THE BEACH RESPONSIBLY!

  1. Love the updates. We are on Holiday Isle for the week of June 22. Water looks beautiful. High waves, red flag. And purple flag, probably for sea ice.

  2. we are staying in Santa Rosa Island, and this morning (06/23/2013) we swam until the rain came. There were a lot of ‘blobs’ of june grass that varied from the size of golf balls to the size of baseballs. There were also some jellies not as many as yesterday), and my nephew actually got stung once. Even with the june grass and jellies, we stayed in the water because the temperature was perfect and we only get to the beach once a year.
