Better beach access at Hatteras

Blogger and Emerging Horizons editor Candy Harrington recently reported on an exciting development in one of my favorite places in the world -- the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Thanks to the efforts of Dave Mims, whose daughter is a wheelchair user, there's now a ramped beach access at Frisco, the first on Hatteras Island. I applaud his efforts to raise the almost $4,000 needed to fund the improvement. Let's hope the national seashore that includes the island doesn't see this as all the access that's needed and that park officials continue to fund more of these improvements even if determined people don't step forward to raise funds for every project.
