Thanks for the comment or letter about all the transplants, I agree totally, I love all the locals ...I am friends with most all of them I come from near Pinehurst, NC area, but the locals are great here, except for the Northerners, some are ok, but most part they think they are doing Topsail Island a favor by being here..I make Topsail my home now and never regret it, except for the times we spent all summer here, and it was peaceful, fishing, going on the beach, NOT LIKE NOW, it is traffic, rude people, filthy language on beaches and stores, drugs everywhere, it is like all the northerners and young people want to come here and party. I miss the old days of peace on a small little town. I still find the local people old timers we call them and find a peaceful place to visit or eat. I miss the old times, but as you say..the storm will come and wash all the million dollar homes away...and the northerners will run for cover..the island is getting smaller due to growth, too much of it, and the ocean is taking over the island, a lot of people say no it isn't I can see it..sad..
