I love the beach but because of lack of wheelchair accessibility, I haven’t gone down by the waves in eleven years. This last Saturday, my boyfriend made my dream come true but using wooden boards to get me through the sand. I had the best day ever getting to feel the sand between my toes and the salty air on my face. And it’s all thanks to my loving, determined boyfriend. 3D40DDF9-CBB0-4A7B-92E4-930C6B0A8A2B
Leah, this is great. I can usually walk on the sand if I use hiking sticks or crutches, but I have to be careful. I haven’t been in the water in a long time. The waves will knock me down and getting back out is nearly impossible. Also, just hanging on the beach is hard. Can’t really sit and get out of chairs easily. My idea that I had mentioned once before is to buy one of those portable massage table. That would make the perfect beach seating.
