Cape Hatteras

 

                This Hatteras Island fishing village on the Outer Banks was settled, it is said, by shipwrecked sailors from Devon, England.This national seashore extends some 70 miles,encompassing the southern end of Bodie Island and nearly out of Hatteras  and Ocracoke Islands.Visitors centers are at both the southern and northern shores.Open only during the summer season.The Hatteras Island Visitors Center is open all year around.  The Devon accent is indeed heard here and on the islands of Ocracoke and Manteo. The Outer Banks they say is one of the grave yards of the Alantic ocean.Because of the rough shallow water 600-2000 ships have found their watery grave here.A scuba drivers haven.
