Better beach access

North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina was lauded in a recent editorial in the Sun News for installing improved beach access for the disabled. The planned ramps will allow wheelchair users to get beyond the dune line in their own chairs. As someone who likes to hit the beach, I'm hoping more beach municipalities and hotels will follow this lead and work toward making all beach accesses wheelchair accessible. Truly all it would take in many cases is some additional wood -- and of course the realization that it's truly important and useful.

By the way, nearby Myrtle Beach was recently sued over the state of its public accesses.
