    Beach wheelchairs at Stinson

    We are coming up on September and October--often the most lovely, warm and sunny months in the SF Bay Area. Which makes me really want to get out to the beach!  But how to do it with my rickety old mobility scooter? That's usually the issue.

    Here's a resource I just heard about that I am going to look into: special beach wheelchairs available at Stinson Beach. Find out more here: http://www.nps.gov/goga/planyourvisit/beach-wheelchairs.htm

    I have heard that pushing the chair is smooth-sailing on wet sand, but does take a lot of effort for the person pushing once the chair is on dry sand. Also, transfers can be somewhat tricky as the foot rests and extra large wheels tend to get in the way. Still, these chairs can get wet, which means you have salt and sea water and sun at your fingertips.

    We could be here

    soon!
