    Headed to Grayton for my annual Thanksgiving celebration. Am resticted to a walker due to mobility difficulties. I recall seeing something about obtaining a temporary beach permit to allow my husband to drive me to the beach. Can someone tell me what the rule is and what I need to do to obtain the temporary permit. Thanks everyone...:cool:

    I will be there for a week and wish there was some way to get a temorary peermit that would allow me access to the beach during my stay without the cost a year's permit. I am on a walker and trying to traverse sand is a no go. It is just so sad to spend the week in the house. I can use the ramps and love being able to see the beach, but I am a red dirt girl and I just long to feel sand between my toes. I may have imagined it but I had a recollection of being able to obtain a beach driving permit with proof of handicapp status and the permit was for a week to allow handicapped visitors to enjoy and access the beach during stays.

    If you can't find any other way, I suggest going down to Red Bar and meeting some of the guys with trucks. They'd help you out. Or send someone right down to the beach to recruit from there. Locals are friendly! :wave:

    Try calling Walton County Administration 850 892-8155 about the temporaty handicap permit. And remember that the Clerk of Courts affice is handleing beach permits now, not the Tax Collectors office.
