On a popular episode of Seinfeld, Kramer says he wants to make a perfume that re-creates the smell of the beach. Now, British scientists say they have effectively bottled that unmistakable fragrance - in a test tube filled with bacteria. "It smells, that's for sure," scientist Andrew Johnston said of his laboratory at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, about 115 miles northeast of London. Johnston and colleagues wrote about their study in today's edition of the journal Science.

On a sizzling day, one of Maryland's premier summer getaways turned ghost town while an Army bomb squad exploded World War II-era munitions that had washed up at Assateague Island National Seashore. After two muffled explosions late Tuesday morning, a portion of the park reopened, including the main drag, Bayberry Drive, but ocean access and parking were limited, said a park spokeswoman, Rachelle Daigneault. "We are taking our time to make a complete assessment, but we're not anticipating any further issues," said Daigneault, who did not expect the public to cancel plans to visit the island for July 4. Campers milled about and took refuge in the cool darkness of the visitor center movie theater as an ordnance disposal unit from Aberdeen Proving Grounds collected rusted relics - more than 100 pieces - piled them in a pit dug in the soft sand and covered it with blast mats.

BEIDAIHE, China -- Step off the train at this seedy seaside resort near Beijing and step back into old China -- the determinedly socialist one where the state ran things and ran them into the ground.Paint peels off the cracked walls of the buildings downtown, a stagnant green pool sits at the bottom of a dry water slide and the city's main clock tower always reads 4: 30. At the beachfront hotel for foreigners, the stench of dead fish rises from overflowing trash cans. The grass tennis court is dirt and weeds.

Santa Rosa Island, in the Gulf Islands National Seashore off the Florida Panhandle, does not look like much of a battleground, even though the 170-year-old Fort Pickens guards its western end. But this tiny stretch of sand has become a new focus in a long-running and intense debate about how people can coexist with nature on the coast. The island is a flat sandy barrier whose dunes have been virtually destroyed in recent storms. Its lone road, County Road 399, had to be moved after Hurricane Opal in 1995, and it was damaged by subsequent storms.

The wild beauty of vast expanses of sand and water are the main attractions of the Outer Banks, a series of about 20 barrier islands that traverse the 300-mile length of North Carolina's Atlantic shore.Mingled among them is an eclectic mix of living styles from exclusive communities offering the most comfortable and expensive of accommodations to rows of funky cottages and guest houses, constructed on foundations made of wooden stilts to protect them from the at-times moody ocean a few yards away.

OCEAN CITY -- After an anxious week of weather watching, merchants and city officials at Maryland's beach resort think they have dodged another Atlantic storm.Now they are beginning to turn their attention to the bottom line -- how much the gray skies, high winds and pounding surf churned up by wayward Hurricane Dennis will affect the turnout for Labor Day weekend.Yesterday, as Dennis was downgraded to a tropical storm and meandered south, again threatening the North Carolina coast, Ocean City officials relaxed their vigil.

Just back from a lazy week at the beach, I recently found myself considering coastal style and couldn't help recalling some of beach houses we've showcased in ChesapeakeHome Magazine. I even drove by a few of them on my way to lunch or en route to that new shop I was heading to check out. And of course I have favorites. Over the years I've visited and considered hundreds of coastal homes for publication, and the magazine has published dozens of seaside residences where the architecture, decor and locations were truly special.

You could say the Outer Banks has been in the tourism business since 1587 -- the year early settlers attempted an unsuccessful colonization on Roanoke Island. Ever since, the mystique of these sandy barrier islands has grown, luring generations of families and friends to its charming waterfront communities. More than 100 miles of soft sand embody the peace and quiet visitors crave and expect in the Outer Banks. A thriving surf community adds thrills as surfers catch gnarly curls at Rodanthe Pier.

By August, temperatures are soaring in inland Massachusetts, where we live, so we find refuge on Cape Cod with good friends who have a small cottage near the water. Our hosts love to cook and eat as much as we do, so we always go to a nearby fish store together to purchase each night's supper. Since scallops are my favorite shellfish, I am taking with me this year a new recipe that features these tender morsels. The dish -- Pan Seared Scallops and Tomatoes with Basil Beurre Blanc -- takes only a few minutes to assemble and makes a striking visual impression.

You're back from the beach with that marvelous manana feeling. But it evaporates the minute you return to your fast-forward life. You may not be able to prolong the weekend, but you can re-create that beachy, kicked-back feeling -- in your garden. Of course, it won't be exactly the same, partly because growing conditions on the salt-sprayed dunes are so different from town. "For one thing, it's much windier at the beach," notes Sylvan Kaufman, conservation curator at Adkins Arboretum in Ridgely, "which is why many of the trees and shrubs are so short and sculptural."

Veedor the Andean condor spread his wings to their full 9 1/2 -foot span yesterday and took to the air over North Baltimore. True, he soared no higher than 6 or 8 feet above the soccer field at the Friends School on North Charles Street. It was hot, after all, much hotter than the cool Andean crags where his kind evolved millions of years ago. But watching Veedor sweep across the field and land at their feet was thrilling enough for almost 1,000 cheering Friends students and faculty. Veedor was the highlight of the school's observance of Earth Day. "Awesome!"

If you want beach hair, but you can't spare the time to drive to the shore, Nolita has the answer. The hair-care line inspired by the area of New York City just north of Little Italy includes Grit Gel, a hair gel with a sandy feel that gives you a bit of that windblown look you get after a day at the beach. Plus, it has great hold to boot, and it doesn't make your hair feel dirty (we gave it a test-drive). Other products in the line include a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner designed to counteract pollutants' effects on the hair, molding clay for "extreme texture and hold" and firm-hold aerosol hairspray.
