on the Atlantic coast. This challenging
cycling trip was undertaken by Paul
to raise funds for OWLS (Outer Banks
Wildlife Shelter). While the trip itself
was deemed, by all accounts, as a huge
success, the fund-raising fell somewhat

mammal cage for OWLS.

counts them. Some sections of town have
one homeowner association, and others
have a master association with several
small associations representing specific
constituencies in a larger development
(see table). Understanding the history
and makeup of homeowner associations
is one way of understanding Pine Knoll
Shores. I thought I might begin with
my own section of town—Beacon's
Reach, appropriately named since Cape

Knoll Shores had incorporated. The
Mansfield family had recently built an
inn that became a Ramada (now the

Further west to where a sign for Pine
Knoll Shores is now was undeveloped
property not yet incorporated then as
part of the town.
Heirs of Alice Hoffman's Isle of Pines'
estate, third-generation descendants
of President Theodore Roosevelt,
were ready to begin a major new
development. Having implemented
