Mr. Sun Says 'Come to Carteret'
When old Mr. Sun starts getting up early these morn
ings, it's time to start thinking about spending some of
the summer hours, days, and weeks on the Carteret
The youngsters will soon be lolling on the porch, won
dering what to do now that school is out. It's time for
Dad to start cleaning that fishing rig, for Mom to spruce
up ner summer-iun wardrobe and head lor
the beach ? where livin' is easy and cares
of the day are forgotten.
This year there are even more ways here
to pack the days with fun. Not only is there
the sun. the sand, the ever-new ocean, fish
ing and swimming ? but this summer an entirely new
"family beach" called Moonlight Bay will be open near
Atlantic Beach ; motels, hotels, restaurants, tourist
homes have dolled themselves up for expectcd guests;
three head boats will be sailing to the deep water in

wonderful days awaiting the Carteret va
cationer. There are all kinds of fishing. Lodging to be

appetite-whetting meals in marvelous seafood restau
rants; every kind of wmter sport for the younger set
including safe beaches on the ocean; dancing and all
the hoop-la any vigorous vacationer wants.
For the vacationer seeking peace and relaxation, Car
teret cannot be bettered. Strange as it may seem, al
though Carteret was among the first lands to be touched
by European explorers, it la yet new. Many parts of It
are wild, breathtakingly attractive in their native state.
Wide expanses of beach, undeveloped, are
accessible to p*ve4 roads; and just a few
miles away are shops and stores and the
hustle and bustle of persons going about
the everyday business of living.
No matter what yeu My cho?0?, ? vaca
tion of "living it up" or "living it dowa", Carteret is- your
answer. Many have come here "just for a few days"
and have never left. So any newcomer should be aware
that a wonderful spell may be cast over him.
For those who want to spend the rest of their lives
here, there is beautiful land available, much of it by
water. Carteret is virtually a little Florida. A few lucky
ones have discovered it.
