A Daily Journal of Island History & Culture
I will be visiting this summer and plan to take the tour...what a wonderful addition to your island. I don't suppose you would consider just charging a dime?????
Well, well, a dime?? Of course "the story of Ocracoke" for a dime was way back in the mid-1950's, an era when a modest island home on a half acre lot sold for $500.00. Today that same lot would sell for about $500,000.00. No kidding! If I did the calculation correctly that's a 1000 times increase. By the same rate of inflation a tour worth a dime in 1955 would be worth $100.00 in 2004.So I'd say come join me on the ghost/history walk. It's definitely a bargain at only $12.00. Don't you agree?
However, on the other hand, wow, only twelve dollars for an historical tour by a knowledgeable tour guide fraught with mystery...I mean, where else can one get such a deal?
