The Ghost Cottage at East Seagull

The “Ghost” cottage stands as the lone survivor of a row of  several summer retreats that stood on East Seagull Drive in South Nags Head, swept away by high water and winds.     Years ago it stood well  back from the water's edge thanks to extensive beach replenishment, but erosion swept away the protective sand barrier , and now high tide brings wave action well up under the building.  Today it offers welcome shade to beachcombers and bathers,   and one wonders if it  will survive to do so  again in the coming summer  season.
