If you're planning a New England vacation this summer and get anywhere near Cape Cod, be sure to stop at the Dancing Angel and the Ryanharrt Gallery in Sandwich, Mass.These delightful shops are new additions to the Cape, thanks to an adventuresome Baltimorean Sheryl Ryanharrt, who many of you will remember from her days of acting in dinner theaters/soap operas. This is a bold move for Ryanharrt. She was at loose ends after the death of her husband, Richard Byrd, so she packed up her life's belongings in March and headed to Cape Cod to begin a new life.

Third in a summer series highlighting dream homes on the water. When Wendy and Alex Haig set out five years ago to find the perfect weekend retreat, they were torn between two different bucolic areas: the rolling horse country of Middleburg, Va., and the wide expanse of the Chesapeake Bay. "The bay very clearly won out," Wendy Haig says. Alex Haig, a lawyer and son of former Secretary of State Alexander Haig, and his wife, a managing partner for a marketing strategy company, wanted a place where they could relax with family and friends and escape from the pressures of Washington.

From: Donald DunnEllicott CityI live approximately three minutes from the Waverly Mansion and drive on Marriottsville Road on a daily basis. The proposed development called Waverly Woods is of special interest to me.However, my interest transcends the emotion of being a resident. I am in favor of the proposed development for the following reasons:* I want my children and grandchildren to have the financial means to live here. The price of a 3-acre lot near $200,000 is not even middle-class affordability.

The longtime Towson resident was 87. "We got to know the Farbers through the Gilman School connection because our kids were there, and we did a lot of things together," said Richard W. Sunderland, a longtime close friend of Mrs. Farber and her husband. "Patty was a wonderful person and so full of life.

WELLFLEET, Mass. -- With help from an extremely high tide and an overcast sky, volunteers yesterday rescued 21 of 27 pilot whales that became stranded in the marshes of Chipman's Cove.Since 1986, only five of the approximately 142 other whales that have beached on Cape Cod are known to have survived, so officials were trying to avoid hasty declarations of success yesterday."The whales could still turn around and beach themselves again. We'll have to be on alert for several days," said Vicki Corliss, spokeswoman for the New England Aquarium, one of fourorganizations involved in the rescue effort.

THE VAST majority of rockfish on this side of the continent were spawned in the Chesapeake Bay, and on a recent visit to Massachusetts I saw some of that progeny on their summer vacation. There's no way to be certain, but scientists tell us there's a 90 percent chance that the fish I saw were from the Chesapeake. So I think I'm safe. All of which provides a premise to describe a scene:A tidal creek on Cape Cod, a serpentine stream in a wide, lush marsh. The wind has picked up at midmorning, and across the sand dunes you can see whitecaps on the ocean.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Bob on Cape Cod, visitors who head down the Mid-Cape Highway this fall will be struck by a dramatically altered landscape. An early fall has struck, with shriveled brown leaves beginning to drift from trees and shrubs ZTC -- the result of the fierce, salt-drenched winds.Many of the fast-growing, shallow-rooted locusts planted in groves 60 or 70 years ago have been uprooted, while the frail survivors dangle overhead; groves of oak, maple and pine have been "pruned by nature," as the professionals put it. Many Cape Codders are left with unaccustomed sunlight and a decade's worth of firewood.

In 2001, Mike and Mary Landavere were renting an apartment in an old Victorian home in Catonsville when, after five years, they decided to search for a home of their own. "House prices were climbing every month," Mary Landavere, a freelance decorative painter, remembered. "We had to [make our] move." For the 40-year-old artist, the area and style of house seemed a clear choice. She had grown up in Catonsville and always appreciated older houses, especially their interiors. "The house had to be old," she continued, "but Mike wasn't sure, because [he]

Nancy Short considers herself a blessed person and calls her little brick Cape Cod in Catonsville - the first house she has ever owned - a divine gift. "The house was on the market for $365,000, the only one I looked at," the 44-year-old physical education teacher recalled. "I was approved for a $300,000 loan and then apologized to the [former owners] for wasting their time." The owners, whom she refers to as "an angelic couple," understood how hard it was to buy a first home and sold it to her for that amount.

On Cape Cod, a mecca for lovers of locally dug shellfish, the menu board at JT's Seafood Restaurant boasts an unlikely message: "All our clams come from Canada." Normally, owner Bud Noyes would be hawking only the freshest local products. But not this year. Not with the red tide. Although it is still early in the season, fewer people seem to be lining up for fried strips and bellies at Noyes' clam shack in Brewster, and those who come ask the same question: "What's going on with the red tide?"

Right now, we are being urged to complete and return our census forms. The government's lighthearted ads illustrate some of the benefits of participation in the decennial count for us, our families and our communities: appropriate representation in Congress, equitable funding for schools and adequate public health care. As someone engaged in historical research, however, the census — along with past censuses — provides another benefit for me: the ability to reconstruct the lives of Americans who lived in past decades — in some cases, more than 200 years ago. As a preservationist, I use the population schedules of earlier censuses to learn more about the owners, architects and builders of houses, schools, churches, factories, farms, bridges, cemeteries and gardens — all of the physical remnants that represent the social and cultural development of the United States.

The water is chilly. The parking prices are steep, at $10 a day, and so is the climb up the 30-foot dunes to get something to drink. When the weekend sun shines and the wind dies down, the sand is packed virtually blanket-to-blanket with people.And White Crest Beach in Wellfleet, on the outer reach of Cape Cod, may be the best beach you'll ever set foot on.It's not a beach that coddles you like the warm bath of the Caribbean, or spoils you like your favorite resort. It takes a sort of dizzy determination to even get your head wet.But arrive at low tide on a clear, warm day, when its sandbars and tidal pools nestle each other in a curving yin and yang of beige and blue.

ORLEANS, Mass. -- Not a whisper of doubt or even tentative skepticism is uttered about Mark Teixeira, who is scrutinized by a demanding jury of scouts sitting in almost daily judgment of his ability and potential. They search for flaws -- trying to find what he can't do -- but everything is overwhelmingly positive.He continues to record high marks on their report cards. This is the most impressive prospect and the fifth youngest among 222 players in the Cape Cod League, composed entirely of college athletes.
