    I am not at the beach but have noticed a lot of dark stuff in the water on the beach cams. Is it sargassum?

    June Grass has arrived but it's not too bad yet because it is patchy and easily avoided. But could escalate quickly depending on weather and waves.

    Surprising how quickly the June Grass appeared pretty much everywhere today. There wasn’t a trace yesterday.

    It is fascinating to watch the ebb and flow. It lingers in patches and when surf builds it spreads and then when things die down it forms patches again. A very heavy surf will push it onshore or offshore, or both.

    It is beautiful today at Seagrove - lots of June Grass patches and open, clear areas. The surf is going to pick up this week so it will likely get ugly before (maybe) getting pushed on to shore.

    I don’t remember seeing June grass when I visited the area in the sixties as a child.

    I saw a video taken today of a big,happy sea turtle munching away on grass right off the shoreline. It may be an aggravation for some but for him it looked like "fine dining":)
