that is one of the many perils of living directly on the beach.
there are a list of things that can go wrong when you want that ocean front
view, that the normal house owner would never experience.

Sounds like the question should be "was their anything left to sell"?

I guess that would depend on which storm got them, Floyd or Fran. I went down there after Fran as my BIL lives in Rocky Point and 3-4 months after the inital storm, it appeared that a bomb went off in the places right on the water. If I wanted to get any closer to the coast, I would probably stop at Rocky Point in Pender County. It is about a 20 minute drive to Wilmington and we have talked about some. But Chris works for the town and he has 10 years in which means he could retire when he is 64 on a full pension in 20 years. And I guess that and the fact that he has "transplanted" to Greene County and grown a "long tap root" that I am not usually seeing in people that are not originally from down here is why we haven't acted on it. Heck he knows more people than I do and I was born here.
