....But Dr. Beach (Dr. Stephen Leatherman) made it official at 12:15 pm this afternoon. Ocracoke is the Number One Best Beach in the country. As most of our readers know, we have sixteen miles of undeveloped beach. No boardwalks, no hot dog stands, no cottages, no high rises. Ocracoke is the perfect place for that minimalist vacation. If you are reading this and are not familiar with Ocracoke be sure that you enjoy the simple pleasures, such as biking, swimming, kayaking, fishing, reading, and just plain relaxing, before deciding to make our island your vacation destination. If this is your kind of place, we welcome you. Stroll on down Howard Street and pay us a visit. You might even want to sit on the porch for a spell and soak in some island flavor.
