This house has probably been sitting on this Nags Head NC beach for 60 years or more. A house a quarter of a mile away has been there 100 years and within a stone’s throw from an often violent sea. Yet now this one is jacked up and ready to move further inland. The house I live in was 15 years ago just yards away from this one and now nestled on safer ground. Those of us crazy enough to live here on the Outer Banks know there really isn’t any totally safe from hurricane ground. We live on shifting sands. Glorious.
