Go here: Bethany Beach is part of the "Quiet Resorts," a seven-mile stretch of beaches including South Bethany and Fenwick Island, just north of Ocean City. Thanks to a beach replenishment project, there's more sand than ever for lounging, but there's also swimming, fishing, surfing, sailing and raft-riding. The boardwalk is lined with shops, restaurants, bars and video arcades, and Captain Jack's Pirate Golf mini-golf course is just two blocks away. Its proximity to Ocean City makes it a popular destination for high school graduates in the spring, so be wary of large crowds in May and June.

From the foot of their driveway, Leslie Kopp and Chuck Coltman's three-story, seaside retreat is as imposing a Victorian structure as one is likely to encounter along the shores of Bethany Beach, Del. The exterior is as formal as a portrait of a great-great-grandmother but is tempered with lace-like, gingerbread wooden embellishments. Narrow in width, yet almost five times that in its depth, the 25-foot-wide-by-121-foot-deep structure could easily take its place with the well-kept, mid-19th-century townhouses found in many cities.

One of the best things about Ocean City is that some things never change. Families visit the same restaurants, year after year. Kids experience the same rides their parents rode when they were kids. The wild horses of Assateague stay wild and the gorgeous ocean view never wavers. But even the most stalwart lovers of tradition enjoy something fresh once in a while. This summer, thanks to tons of openings and events, both veteran beachgoers and O.C. newbies will find plenty that's new to love in and around Ocean City . Dining & nightlife Everyone has their favorite beach restaurants and bars - but it's fun to try new spots, too. This year, there are plenty of new places opening - and some major renovations to old favorites - making it easy to add a little variety to your dining schedule.

Bethany Beach's dedicated residential-community culture has thrived for decades, subsisting primarily on its permanent beach-house folks and condominium residents. Its few hotels typically impose a minimum-stay requirement. There's no frenetic boardwalk fanfare; the town's picturesque wooden promenade provides strollers and joggers with a stage for views of spectacular oceanfront scenery. There are occasional benches where visitors can perch and people- and pigeon-watch. The laid-back vibe inspires lazy beach days and long, serene dinners.

Not so long ago, Labor Day was the moment the cottage door twanged shut. For rentals at the beach, the long season began on Memorial Day, the short on July 4. But long or short, it was over on Labor Day, just before school started.Like many travel patterns in America, this one is changing. While no one has created the endless summer surfers dream of, September and October have become beach time for many.On Cape Cod, in New Jersey and at shore resorts elsewhere along the recreational vehicle flyway, officials all say yes, yes, there is a post-Labor Day influx of retired people, especially those taking a leisurely course to Florida.

BETHANY BEACH -- You should talk with Martha Jean, people say to people poking around town. Her full name is Martha Jean Addy. Her full age is 85, which commands a certain local perspective:Bethany Beach is only 12 years older. On the north end of this beach, the summer hotel named Addy Sea is 22 years younger than Martha Jean. The hotel -- now a bed and breakfast -- was born and raised in the Addy family. And, in 1959, Martha Jean and her husband, C.E. Addy, ran Addy Sea themselves."Well, I never considered myself a businesswoman -- but I became one," Martha Jean says.

Susan Burke's recent letter was ill-considered ("Gansler's comments reflect 'boys will be boys' culture," Nov. 11). She voiced false assumptions and assertions about Attorney General Doug Gansler's presence at his son's high school graduation week celebration in Bethany Beach this summer. Her use of the word, "attendance," deliberately implies participation and revelry when, in fact, Mr. Gansler only briefly stopped by to check on his son. Ms. Burke states that Mr. Gansler paid for his son's house at the beach.

How much damage could that teen party in a Delaware beach house do to Doug Gansler's campaign for governor of Maryland? Hard to tell. I've heard three reactions: •Righteous indignation: Gansler is the attorney general. He publicly opposed but privately condoned underage drinking. He had no business joining other parents in renting a house where teen drinking would likely occur. The photos from the beach house are outrageous - a bunch of Landon School boys spoiled by their affluent parents.
