Re: How old?
There is a lot of history on here so here goes some of mine. Born and raised on Cape Hatteras N.C we didn't have electricity, paved roads,water was caught in cisterns from the rain. All freight and mail was bought in by boat. During WW2 we could hear the explosions and see the fires from the ships that were torpedoed by the Germans. It was a great Island then but now the NP Service has closed a lot of the beaches for a few birds nest and fishing has just about gone by the way side. I left in 54 and put 20 yrs in the Coast guard came back in 74 and commercial ed fished for 25 yrs.
