"You could leave 100 dollars on the main street here and nobody would touch it." Mrs. Mahan says. "But an open bottle of whisky will be gone in a second, because the liquor store is in Nags Head, and Ocracoke is dry." Housing can be a problem for new residents. Ocracoke doesn't really want to grow much and new residents who can locate property and building materials may find themselves contracting with fiercely independent island carpenters who always quit w«.c ; i when the fish start biting. » In addition, the town itself is unincorporated, without zoning, housing codes or gov- .ernment, and the Hyde County fathers are 30 miles across Pamlico Sound in the county seat of Swan Quarter. Phil and Julia Howard find the lack of government interference philosophically attractive, and when they built their home and shop Phil did the plumbing and wiring. DISCOVER A DREADNOUGHT!

But for the most part, Ocracoke isn't yet a place of trailers: it's a place of oSk- shaded sand streets, ferry boat whistles, seagull cries and hushpuppies at the Island Inn. And even if Julia Howard occasionally misses (to her own horror) the drug stores and. hamburgers of Hagerstown, she says she "wouldn't trade any of it for just being able to lie in bed and listen to the sound of the sea over the dunes." Jessica Mahan, a generation older, agrees. "I can walk my dog down and never see a car," she says. "The other night I sat out under a tree and listened to the ocean and watched the moon and stars and realized that I'm happier than I've ever been in my life." ftiltmore B E A C H L O D G F - .Sun-Fun Vacation at fciltmore .WOW!
