As a Cape Elizabeth resident and dog owner I am writing to express my gratitude to the people of South Portland for sharing their beautiful Willard Beach with us and our puppy. We regularly join our South Portland friends for early weekend morning walks there. The beach sharing system now in place just makes so much sense, as it takes into consideration everyone’s needs and still manages to promote the concept of sharing. I know how pleased I have been when folks from other towns have expressed gratitude to me as a Cape resident for being able to use Fort Williams without fees – a different example of sharing. Please know that as we scamper off the beach by the 9 a.m. deadline, we do so with much gratitude to all of you in South Portland.
