Letter: Come to play

We were recently in Inverness as part of a family trip to Nova Scotia. We are from Ontario. Our son is a wheelchair user and, in my research, to try to find accessible accommodations and activities (which is very difficult to do), I read about the accessible beach in Inverness. I was so impressed by the community’s efforts, that I knew we had to stay there. We stayed for five nights at Cape Breton Villas (another great place for accessibility).
We just wanted to extend a heartfelt thank you to all those in the Inverness Development Association who helped make the accessibility features possible. We enjoyed beautiful scenic walks on the amazing boardwalk. We were also able to spend a few days on the beach (for the first time in a long time) thanks to the beach chairs. Special thanks to the gentlemen who volunteered their time at the beach helping us with signing out the chairs. Thanks to all your efforts, we have some wonderful memories and my son was able to splash in the ocean with the rest of us! This means more than you know.
Your forward-thinking efforts have helped create a beautiful inclusive area that provide enjoyment for everyone! You are truly an example to other communities. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.
