staff reports

OKALOOSA ISLAND — Locals and tourists enjoyed a green flag day as calm surf invited swimmers to wade in the Gulf of Mexico behind The Boardwalk and Ramada Beach Plaza. 

Clouds crept over the beach in the afternoon due to a chance of rain coming on Wednesday and Thursday. June grass was absent from the water on Tuesday.
