    Underneath much of our beach is the remnants of old forest lands. The ancient trees, roots, leaves and other organic matter has turned into peat. Here and there along South Walton beaches it is exposed, especially in the Seacrest area. It's often mistaken for seaweed when it is under water. In some places you can also see old stumps that are uncovered on occasion.
