It's beach season! Time for a week, if you are lucky, on the coast to enjoy all that the Maryland and Delaware shores have to offer — including some really great shopping. With a built-in captive audience of second-home owners, the Mid-Atlantic coastal towns offer a variety of home furnishings and accessories boutiques with merchandise that suggests a laid-back lifestyle without being overly beachy. For me, no trip to the shore is complete without stopping into my favorite shops to see what's new. Here are a few that are worth a beach detour: Boxwood Home 39 Baltimore Ave., Rehoboth Beach, Del. One of my new favorites, Boxwood Home is perfect for home decorators looking to create a calm, sophisticated look.

Leo J. Beachy's photography has deep roots in the rocky soil of Western Maryland, where he worked as a youth on the farm called Mount Nebo. "Here it is I learned what it is to plow and sow and till and reap," he writes in his brief, engaging autobiography. And here it was that he took pictures of the people and countryside with great, homey affection and subtle, playful art. He photographed the awkward graduates of one-room schools, farm families a-haying and at vast family reunions, maidens in white with their bow-tied beaus and barefoot children at play at harvest time.

When Bill Beachy started teaching music at Mount Hebron in 1966 at age 21, he earned $5,500 a year and the current high school was a middle school. Thirty-five years later, what were open fields are now full of houses. And many of his previous pupils have become educators, Beachy said. Former school board member Stephen C. Bounds took seventh-grade music from Beachy, who has spent most of his career teaching elementary pupils. "He was a good ambassador for the Howard County music program," said Bounds, who has high praise for the county's performing arts curriculum.

Lying in a hospital bed as a teen, Mark Andrew Beachy settled on what he wanted to do for a career. A bout with a sinus infection that quickly escalated to fluid in his lungs left the then-15-year-old Beachy thinking about how much a visit from a performer means to sick children and adults. Now 24, the Ellicott City resident has launched the Baltimore Children's Theater's first big production at Howard County Center for the Arts. "There hadn't been much children's theater around here," Beachy said.
