If you're returning to Ocean City after a long, dreary winter, you'll be pleasantly surprised to see the resort is home to many new businesses. When you arrive in town, Rosenfeld's Jewish Delicatessen on 63 rd Street bayside should be your first stop. The menu is packed with staples from falafel and hummus to stuffed cabbage and potato latkes. This is truly a one-of-a-kind eatery in the Ocean City area, so you'll want to check it out. Walk a few blocks to 67 th Street - not too far to be tired, but just far enough to burn off some of those calories - and you'll find the TownCenter Midtown Boardwalk.

The best way to view Peck and Patti Miller's home on Assawoman Bay is from the stern of their 22-foot runabout — to slice the water across the little cove and to see the gables of their cottage in Ocean City come closer and closer as people wave from the pier. "Now this is how to experience it," said Peck Miller, a 55-year-old transplant from Towson who came to work "downy ocean" in 1973 when he was a teen and happened to stay. " Ocean City can be a noisy place. This area is called 'Little Salisbury' [because]

Anne Arundel County health officials lifted a warning Tuesday afternoon against swimming at Bayside Beach in Pasadena, as the heat index topped 100 degrees. The advisory against coming in contact with the water was issued last week after unacceptably high levels of bacteria were found in water samples. However, new testing showed lower levels. But also Tuesday, health officials issued a warning against swimming, jet skiing and otherwise coming into contact with water at nearby Rockwood Beach, also in Pasadena, due to elevated bacteria levels.

BETTERTON -- Decades have passed since the last Bay Belle steamship whistled into this tiny Kent County town. Gone are the grand hotels with wrap-around porches and white-gloved waitresses, the throngs of Baltimore vacationers on a blanket-covered beach. There is no more busy boardwalk, no more bingo, no more bowling alley -- not even a grocery store. And now the owners of Betterton's last remaining bed and breakfast, the Lantern Inn, are preparing to turn out the lights. Ray and Sandi Sparks, Upperco natives who bought the place six years ago, say the people just aren't coming anymore.

People who build illegally in areas near the Chesapeake Bay will face significantly stiffer fines under a new Anne Arundel County law. The increased fines are part of the county's attempt to crack down on building violations along its more than 500 miles of shoreline. Environmental activists have criticized the county for not policing offenses in state-designated "critical areas" aggressively. The new penalty for illegal grading in the critical areas will increase from $500 to $5,000 beginning Aug. 9. The penalties for building a pier or bulkhead without a permit and continuing work in defiance of a stop order also will increase from $500 to $5,000.

Carol and Marion Coomes' backyard view - a wide-angle shot that includes the South River and famous Thomas Point lighthouse - is one many Marylanders would kill for. As caretakers of Thomas Point Park, the couple have lived for the past 16 years in a 1920s log cabin with a fireplace large enough to roast a small pig. For most of that time they paid no rent, a good deal in a neighborhood where houses sell quickly for $1 million. But two years ago, Anne Arundel County officials decided to begin collecting rent.

The beach at southern Anne Arundel County's Franklin Point lies at the edge of 400 undisturbed acres and offers stunning views of the Chesapeake Bay. Public money has been approved to begin planning for a park there. Some who live nearby hope that history isn't repeated. They remember how plans to develop a nearby waterfront property, Beverly Triton Beach, dissolved amid complaints from the community. The memories of that controversy led some to argue that planning money for a park at Franklin Point should have been cut from the recently adopted county budget.

It's easy to get slightly rhapsodic about the North Fork of New York's Long Island and about the symphony of pleasures it offers the senses. Light does magical things here. It bounces off the waters of the quiet coves of the bay side of the fork, making mirrors of thousands of surfaces. It illuminates the curl of the breakers along Long Island Sound, which pound into the fork's north coast. And for more sunny days than practically any place in the state of New York, it makes the vegetables and the grapes grow.

When Laurette and LeRoy Simmons first saw what would be their new home in Bayside Beach, they both thought the same thing about the place. "What a dump," Laurette Simmons said. But that didn't matter. It was where that dump of a house sat that was important - on the water where the Patapsco River meets the Chesapeake Bay. The Key Bridge and the Bay Bridge are visible from the back yard of the Simmonses' home in Anne Arundel County. And out front is a pond. "It's an unusual situation.
