When I tell people that I'm headed for the beach in North Carolina, the response invariably is something like, "Oh, I just love the Outer Banks -- such a wonderful place."

For I have found, after more than 25 visits to the Wilmington area, that it's the best-kept secret in North Carolina.

Millionaire entrepreneur Alan Fabian strode from the main house on his North Carolina beach property last August to deliver the bad news to a colleague vacationing in a guest cottage. In a brief conversation, Fabian told employee Greg Barr that he was leaving for a few days to face an indictment for fraud in a Baltimore federal court. But he assured Barr that things would be OK. "He was supremely confident and saying that it was basically a misunderstanding," said Barr, who worked for Fabian at a Maryland nonprofit.
