Out toward Pensacola yesterday it was clear as normal. Barrancas Nat'l Seashore was beautiful. Not sure about Henderson. Still pretty close to FWB and the Bay where the runoff from excessive July rains is staining the waters.

Did you ever find clear water? We usually go to Destin and this was our first time in FWB. We are a little bummed by the water conditions. :(

It is gross. Everywhere I've been. We drove down as far as Destin Commons, and across to the water. This morning when we drove down (From Fort Walton) it was gorgeous! This afternoon all the way back up the coast line it is brown, like tea stained, and full of muck. It's the same brown from shallow to deep. First time I've ever seen it that way in the 8 years we've been coming. Anyone know how long it takes the brown stain to go away?

We drive from fort Walton to the beach beside the backporch in destin. It was beautiful there. Granted we left by 230...... When we got bac to fort Walton it was just as we left it ... Looking like a dirty lake.....

We were in Ft Walton on vacation July 20 to the 27th and the water was brown like that then. We were so disappointed. So if its still like that in August , I say it will take awhile. Has it still been raining a lot there? That is why everyone told us was causing it. We went to Navarre and it was brown also. Drove to Pensacola and it was clear.
