The Chesapeake Bay frequently has miraculous fishing, but to get to it, most often you need a boat. This has been a perplexing problem for me and many anglers - especially those who haven't grown their nest egg large enough to own the proverbial hole in the water. Travel to North Carolina or Florida, and flats that welcome boatless anglers exist in abundance. But in the Mid-Atlantic, my best opportunity to enjoy what I call Florida-style, walk-into-the-water flats fishing - for weakfish, stripers, croaker and flounder - is to head to Cape Henlopen State Park in Delaware.

Marine biologists have confirmed that a teenager was bitten by a shark at Cape Henlopen State Park on Monday, and officials said the boy had to get about 25 stitches to close the wound on his arm. The 16-year-old boy, who was not identified, was standing in about 5 feet of water at the popular beach destination around 5 p.m. when he felt something grab his left arm, according to the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control....

There's a new exhibit waiting to greet summer visitors at Delaware's Cape Henlopen State Park. And it's big. It's a 16-inch gun barrel that once roared from the deck of the battleship Missouri during World War II, and it now rests — 120 tons, 68 feet long — at the Battery 519 Museum at Fort Miles, which is part of Cape Henlopen State Park. The gun — officially known as Barrel 371 — arrived at Fort Miles last month. It is similar to the two 16-inch Army guns that defended the coast and the Delaware Bay from German U-boats.

Eleutherian Mills kitchen opensStarting today, the kitchen of Hagley Museum's du Pont family ancestral home in Wilmington, Del., will be open to the public. The kitchen and lower pantry reflect the period between 1925 and 1930 when Louise Crowninshield, the great-granddaughter of DuPont company founder E.I. du Pont, first occupied the residence. Both of the rooms have many of their original 1920s features, including built-in cabinets used to store pots and pans, two porcelain sinks which stand on slender cabriole legs, a large built-in ice box, and a 1920s Glenwood four-burner stove.

The towers hide in plain sight; there is nothing stiller or more silent on the Lewes, Del., beach. They have been part of this place for so long that people who return year after year to the Delaware resorts hardly notice them anymore. The war against the Germans, not surprisingly, isn't much on peoples' minds these days. The 11 concrete fire control towers (colloquially known as "submarine towers") have lasted far longer than anyone thought they would when they were built 60 years ago along the Delaware coast, from Cape Henlopen down to Fenwick Island.

Before you come "in with the new," you have to go "out with the old." About 1,200 old mutual funds went out in 2005, merged or liquidated out of existence. That's an increase of about 20 percent from both 2003 and 2004. Many more funds shifted gears, changing names and investment styles to swap an old image for a new one. Some dead funds leave behind haunting tales from the crypt, a legacy of lessons for all investors. So, in the spirit of year-end retrospectives that list the famous people who met their demise in the past 12 months, here's a review of the most noteworthy funds to pass on in 2005.

Who more than John's Call deserves the shades - you know, the Hollywood movie-star treatment? Yesterday, adorned with "sunglasses" protecting his sensitive eyes, the 10-year-old gelding jogged and galloped at Atlanta Hall Farm in Baltimore County in preparation for his seasonal debut Sunday at Delaware Park. Last year at 9, the ageless chestnut accomplished the improbable. He won two Grade I stakes, finished a close third in the Breeders' Cup Turf and earned distinction as one of three finalists for the Eclipse Award as top turf runner.
