At first, Willie Coffey scoffed at the idea of building a vacation home on a marshy tract adjacent to a busy thoroughfare in coastal Delaware. He and his wife, Debbie, wanted something roomier than the waterfront townhouse they owned near Bethany Beach. He didn't see much potential in the parcels his wife had been eyeing for several weeks. Then, while the Baldwin couple drove along Delaware's Route 1 in North Bethany one day, Debbie Coffey said, "Stop the car or I'm jumping off," he recalled.

I recently caught up with Adam "Ace" Moyer, the CEO and founder of Knockaround, a maker of sunglasses that offer inexpensive and relaxed shades, perfect for the beach. Moyer is a native of the Northern Virginia, and was relaxing in Bethany Beach when we caught up with him about the shades, their design and the future of the brand. Ace, you grew up in this area and your parents also have a beach house in Delaware. How has the mix of being near big cities like D.C. and Baltimore, as well as spending time at the beach, influenced your work as an artist and a designer?

SOUTH BETHANY BEACH, Del. - Standing on the deck of his rented stilt house, looking out on the fastest-eroding beach in the second-fastest-eroding state in the nation, vacationer Matthew Slifko has a question: "What are the state and the Corps of Engineers going to do about it?" 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.

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.

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.
