We All Knew It, Of Course....

....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.

You can read more from Dr. Beach here.

    A local radio station (I live in Chesapeake City, MD, but we listen to Del. stations) reported on this this morning. My daughters and I cringed and moaned when the djs mispronounced 'Ocracoke' as "Oracoke" and Okercoke" and said they had never heard of it!!

    Good news, bad news w/ the Dr. Beach thing...but it appears he did go easy on ya'll. "Only accessible by boat or plane" w/out any mention in print about those nice guys who shuttle folks to & fro! Unless the TV media outed them? I gave up TV this year cause it getting a bit too weird out there.

  3. Hi Philip. Yes, we knew it all the time. Congratulations from someone who longs to come back again. Glad to see you on the web! All the best. Marty Tennant the hammock man.
