WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, N.C. - For the better part of a decade, Mason Inlet, the turbulent wash that separates this Atlantic resort island from Figure Eight Island to the north, has been on the move.It has been creeping steadily south, sweeping away with eons-old impunity both mighty sand dunes and the fragile nests of shore birds.Wrightsville Beach residents have watched warily as the inlet has come closer and closer to their beachfront hotels, condominiums and cottages, but not so warily that they have been impelled to retreat to safer soil or halt the construction of more hotels, condominiums and cottages.

And TV pictures from the beach yesterday morning convinced him he'd lost his house, too."But we're alive," he said.Not everyone fared as well. Of the 17 reported storm-related deaths, 11 were in North Carolina, two in South Carolina and two each in Virginia and West Virginia.

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." When I explain that no, I'm headed farther south, to the Wilmington area, the reaction is just as predictable: a blank look that suggests at best a vague idea where Wilmington is, and no image of what it is like.That's too bad. For I have found, after more than 25 visits to the Wilmington area, that it's the best-kept secret in North Carolina.
