Posted in this Carteret County News-Times story, here's a commercial fishing vessel sitting on the side of Shell Road in Atlantic on Sunday. Said thoroughfare is about 1000 feet from the shore, says Google Maps. Did we mean Atlantic Beach? Nope, that's the community of Atlantic, an unincorporated community in Carteret County along the Core Sound. What's there? Notes this Wikepedia page, Atlantic was the location of the first public high school in the county. It was incorporated from 1905 to 1920. There's a satellite airfield there, operated by the Marine Corps. And they have a fire department.
