With six more weeks of winter, I can’t help but start to think of the warmer days of summer. But then it occurred to me that many of us, like myself find the beach a challenge to access – especially when a wheelchair is involved.

so I am curious how others navigate sand. My family came up with a very creative way to do just this by creating a rickshaw

out of one of my old wheelchairs.

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.

    Same here. Winter sucks. Winter is tension and pain and a lot less mobility. However I seem to have found a way to navigate in snow with crutches by shifting my weight and using what core muscle I actually have. As for walking on sand a lot of beaches have blue wheelchair paths in a particular spot in summer. I have seen a few of them and they are helpful to me. I also know how to walk on beach sand using almost the same weight shifting technique that I use with crutches in snow.
