Seen working for all of uss ED CRUMLEY and his son Peter who realized that the bottom step at Mimosa Beach had risen so far above the sand that anyone shorter than seven feet tall with the legs of a sprinter simply had to resort to pitons and ropes to get from the beach to the first step on the way back to the wooden walk* The Crumleysframed in an additional step and filled it with sand so that we do not have to leap so high.
