June Grass Update for Walton County 7/8/13:AM

June grass update for Walton County  7/8/13:AM

on the June Grass Grossness Index. 

I was on the beach before 7 this morning. The waves were, and still appear to be, nice for boogie boarding. However, the water is still very turbid and dirty and I don’t recommend getting in. Some sargassum came up onto the beach overnight. There were a lot of ~6″ fish jumping close to shore. They may have been Atlantic bumper feeding on smaller fish, but don’t quote me on that. There was a man kayak fishing the Stallworth outflow out past the second sandbar. I also saw two dolphins just out past the second sandbar. There were quite a lot of ghost crabs on the beach, which is a good sign. No June grass in sight yet but it may be lurking just offshore. Time, wind, and waves will tell.

At the time this report was made the beach flags were yellow, 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!
