AS I finished one more Eastern Shore tomato salad, I couldn't help but smile about the day my younger brother Eddie went into the vegetable business for himself. It was about 40 years ago, hot and August, at the corner of Maryland Avenue and the Boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach, Del., in the days when families spent the long summers at the ocean. My father arrived on the weekends, his Rambler station wagon filled with mail from Baltimore and, on this occasion, several bushels of tomatoes donated by a commercial grower friend in New Jersey.

At some point, four people sharing two double beds and one bathroom gets old. The maid service doesn't compensate for the stale muffins in the lobby and coffee you have to make on the desk. It's time to look into renting a house or condo at the beach. "Having a house makes all the difference," says Samuel Penn, a retired executive from Pikesville who rents a house in Rehoboth Beach, Del., for two weeks each year. "It's a home, as opposed to a room. " Most vacation rentals require reservations for a full week, but they may cost less per night than a hotel room.

For those who enjoy boardwalk frivolity and beach serenity in equal measure, Rehoboth Beach, even as its commercial appeal rapidly expands, remains a reliable vacation choice. Some visitors may choose to spend their days reading on the beach and evenings playing Scrabble on the screened porch of a rental home. Others may bob in an ocean of retail possibilities by day and haunt the amusements of Funland by night. Or they may opt to kayak beyond the breakers, brave Dewey Beach's youthful nightlife and meander through nearby historic Lewes.

I was away this weekend in Rehoboth. As usual, I experienced one of the best parts of travel: unexpected pleasures. On Friday I rode down with a woman I've known all but 10 years of my life.  Being with a friend of so many years is like travelling with family.  Nothing needs to be held back. Honesty of opinion is expressed. Differences are known, understood, and generally appreciated. Still, it seems that new ideas and thoughts are always discussed. This and shared experiences are part of what keeps friendship fresh.

1. The main food groups are seafood, candy and beer. Though Rehoboth Beach is justifiably well known for its seafood restaurants, homemade fudge and taffy, and the excellent ales at the Dogfish Head Brewing and Eats, the culinary scene offers much more. In recent years, several restaurants with a farm-to-table focus have opened, and more are on the way. Ethnic food is also gaining popularity. For example, the Cultured Pearl Restaurant and Sushi Bar (www.culturedpearl.us/) serves Asian food, Dos Locos (doslocos.com)

Patrick Reid O'Brien knew at the age of 6 that he wanted to be an artist — art flows through his family tree — but everybody warned him he'd never be able to pay his bills with his art. And for a long time, everybody was right. After graduating with an art degree from St. Mary's College, O'Brien designed insurance forms and then sold hoses and couplings for a while to support his family. He got close to making a living at his art when he was doing graphics for a marketing company.
