[Tangent: I realize I look horribly uncomfortable, but I really wasn't. The chair was slightly ill fitting for 90 lb me, so I had to prop myself up with lots of pillows and towels. Between that and my chunky "fall at the beach sweater" - my sister said all she could see was Barbara Hershey's character from Beaches. I tend to agree that I am just a floppy hat away from hearing "Wind Beneath my Wings" start playing in the background.]
|see what I mean.|
|Dad-I know you are probably yelling at me from the afterlife for putting your naked torso online, but it's helping illustrate my point. Sorry, daddy.|
|it's much easier to find a pusher.|
There are a ridiculous number of incarnations of a beach wheelchair, but the tie that binds all the designs together is the lightweight frame and HUGE plastic wheels, that act kinda like buoys. [Tangent: It's basically PVC pipe with little lawn chair slings. You can run these suckers basically down into the water and they float like a dream.] Hope that clears some things up and for the love, if you are in a chair and love the beach, save your pennies to rent one. They are a game changer.
