Interesting read. Everyone here should check this out.

Here's a sample:
Coastal North Carolina is
undergoing an unprecedented
redevelopment. The family beach that
generations of tourists visited each
summer is fast disappearing. Condos
are replacing the fishing piers – there is
now only one on Bogue Banks. There were eight
10 years ago. The modest beach bungalow will
soon be relegated to those coffee-table books with
the pretty pictures of beaches past. Eight- and 10-
bedroom rental machines are taking their place.
Beachfront homes in Carolina Beach listed for
$500 a square foot last year. That’s Beverly Hills
prices.

Please Jeff..

As someone who has been coming down since 1970 and living here now,I have seen what it used to be and what it is now... It is just a shell of it's former self.. The rich saw a profit,and a chance to close the public off from "thier personal beach".. Just take a look at the beaches of Duck through Nags Head,very little public access.. Soon these beaches will all be thier's,except for the ones with NPS stamped on them,and someday I expect that all NPS lands will become "game refuge",with no human admittance as well..:mad:
