OCEAN CITY -- Diane Hafferman figured she was safe -- she was outside, after all -- but as she stood along the windswept beach here, cigarette in hand, she began to wonder if a place where people come to relax would continue to be so easygoing about her habit. Maryland residents are just getting used to a smoking ban imposed Feb. 1 in restaurants and bars, but the public debate over lighting up may not end with inside spaces. A small Delaware town is preparing to ban smoking on its beach and boardwalk, and other municipalities along the coast are taking notice.

Soon after Bob and Delores Wardwell finished paying off the mortgage on their home in Ellicott City in November 2001, they came to a painful realization. The tax break they earned with a mortgage was gone. "That's when we decided that we'd be better off buying a second home," said Delores Wardwell. They settled on a cozy duplex priced at $190,000 near Bethany Beach, Del. The Wardwells are part of a new wave of consumers helping to make a hot real estate market even better by investing in vacation homes.

The state of Delaware and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' $22 million answer: They plan to build a 16-foot-high artificial dune - with a 150-foot-wide swath of sand behind it - along a two-mile stretch of shoreline.

BETHANY BEACH, Del. - Bethesda resident Jean Holland's dream of owning a home by the ocean had been fueled by the decades she and her family had vacationed in Bethany Beach. It was a dream she never thought would come true. "Then, I made some money in the stock market, and my aunt left me some," recalled Holland, who retired last year after 22 years working for Talbots Inc. "My financial consultant told me to go ahead and follow my dream." Knowing the importance of staying within a budget, Holland knew she couldn't afford an oceanfront home.

A New Jersey company is proposing to build about 200 wind turbines, each taller than the Statue of Liberty, in the Atlantic Ocean or Delaware Bay that would whirl within view of some of the region's most popular beaches. Officials with Bluewater Wind of Hoboken hope their $1 billion offshore wind farm will be the first in U.S. waters. Similar proposals are pending for wind farms off Cape Cod, Mass., and Long Island, N.Y., but they have drawn protests and lawsuits from homeowners who say their water views would be defiled by the towers.
