7-10 on the June Grass Grossness Index

The. June Grass. Will. NOT. Leave!

I attempted to go swimming this afternoon. Unfortunately by the time I got to the beach the wind had switched to the South and there were small waves. What is left of the June Grass is rolling up to shore and is the color of old over-boiled green beans/strained pear baby food. It is ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING! It doesn’t seem to smell at least and it isn’t the same kind of slimy as the summer blooms but now it’s decomposing and is still SLIMY AND DISGUSTING! I waded out int to waist deep water to see if I could get out of the cloud. No such luck. Eww eww eww! I saw one small pompano. The June Grass remains are mostly piling up on the bottom, so instead of wading back to shore I swam/body surfed over the nasty mess. The water is still a nice temperature. I only recommend swimming when the wind is coming from the North, which is usually in the morning. The water will be warmer than the air but that won’t last for too much longer.

In the future there will not be June Grass Reports on red flag days because I don’t encourage anybody to go in the water on a red flag.

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 e 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.
