Yesterday I posted the weekly photo challenge and mentioned that the ocean was green due to sea grass, and that this is the reason why the Florida coast is known as the Emerald coast. Well, a couple of people asked for more pictures of this phenomenon, so I thought I’d oblige!
The sea grass is usually around only in June. We went once in July and the water was a beautiful blue. The grass is usually raked up along the beach as it washes up on shore. Two years ago when we went, a walk along the beach revealed pockets of sea grass so deep that when I stepped on it, I dropped down to my hip. I had to climb out of the hole which wasn’t easy and a little scary. After that we did not step on anything that was sea grass because there was no way to know how deep it was.
