Southport will always have battles.....

I just got through spending the day there last Tuesday and played tourist. Fairly busy for a mid-week visit. Southport is an okay place, but doesn't hold a bithday cake candle to Beaufort, NC and never will. Southport is a quaint little town. The only town I'm aware of that uses vinyl siding on "historically preserved homes" in a historical district. The shops are cutesie with most of the same things one will find in any flea market only at 4 times the price. You can go through all of them (that are still open) in less that 2 hours. The seaside restaurants sport local seafood on paper plates at a very premium price as well. Some of those are closed now also.

Well, Southport, you did one hell of a job pushing the port out of your backyard. From the looks of things, you would have done very well with a boosted economy to help keep those shops open and you really wouldn't have lost that, "quaint lil' fishin' village" image you THOUGHT you had. It's only a small mentality village at the very best.

Now, you can go back to arguing with each other over who can have a sign in front of their store or who can have a sidewalk bench to sit on.

We all have our priorities. Now, we know where yours are. See ya in another 15 years...
