Key Largo is turquoise, peach, ceiling fans and palm trees -- very beachy and a great place to go for a hearty and flavorful vacation meal. Just allow plenty of time in case you get stuck with the waitress we had on a recent visit.The menu promises steaks and seafood. We started with a tasty shrimp and crab casino ($5.50), beautifully presented on a silver shell of a plate. Baked in herb butter, the crab and shrimp were covered with mozzarella cheese and crisp bacon.Our other appetizer was the soup of the day, Manhattan-style clam chowder ($2.95)

KEY LARGO, FLA. 100 GREATEST TRIPS Travel + Leisure Books / $34.95 So many destinations, not enough time. But that doesn't seem to have prevented the editors of Travel + Leisure magazine from assembling a list of what they call the "100 Greatest Trips." Given the sophistication of the magazine, it is not surprising that the suggestions veer on the side of the classy, the urbane and the chic, with an emphasis on the arts. They write about gallery hopping around New York City, a culinary tour of Brittany, France, learning to draw and paint in Florence, Italy, a cinematic pilgrimage to Rome and much more.

Q: I seem to recall an ex-research station in the Florida Keys that was turned into an underwater hotel.Do you have any information on it?A: The place you have in mind is Jules' Underwater Lodge, a 50-by-20-foot white steel capsule that was once used for scientific exploration off Puerto Rico. Guests enter the hotel through an opening in the belly of the capsule 20 feet below the water and must therefore be able to scuba dive.The structure, which sits in 30 feet of water at Key Largo Undersea Park, contains two suites that rent for $295 a person in double occupancy for a full day and a night in the Luxury Aquanaut Package.

Bogart and Bacall may have put Key Largo on the map with their 1948 movie of the same name. But, in fact, their battles against gangster Edward G. Robinson and a hurricane were characteristic only of the tempestuous action the island had seen during the previous two centuries.In 1763, the British swapped New World territories with Spain -- Havana for Florida. Along with the Florida peninsula, Britain got a string of islands to the southeast, the Keys, a challenging property to manage. British fighting ships constantly ran aground on the shallow reef; British intrusion was challenged by native Calusa tribes.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- When international explorer Robert Ballard dives the reefs off Key Largo in April, nearly a half-million students from around the world will be watching.Many will be able to ask questions of Ballard and his team of scientists -- while they are underwater. Some may be able to push a button on a computer to maneuver one of Mr. Ballard's famous submersibles.The $6 million high-tech learning adventure, dubbed "JASON Project VII: Adapting to a Changing Sea," is designed to study South Florida's coastal habitats and determine man's effect on the sea.The project began last month with scientists, students and teachers exploring the Everglades and Florida Bay. It will culminate April 15 to 26 in the Florida Keys, with exploration of reefs and an as-yet-unexplored shipwreck in about 400 feet of water off Key Largo.

KEY WEST, FLA. // Only one road leads from Key Largo all the way to Key West, so you'll get wet before you get lost. For the directionally impaired, that makes things easier. Yet the 100 or so miles between Key Largo in the north and Key West on the southwestern end cover a lot of territory. The Keys comprise 1,700 islands, after all. Harry Truman visited 11 times between 1946 and 1952. Ernest Hemingway spent 11 years in Key West. I had two days to take it in. For the most part, U.S. 1 is two lanes -- sometimes highway, sometimes city street.

KEY LARGO - Tourists and mobile-home residents began fleeing the Florida Keys yesterday as Hurricane Ivan, the third storm to threaten the state in a month, took aim at the fragile island chain and perhaps the mainland as well. The specter of a triple whammy worried Gov. Jeb Bush, who said that, beyond preparation, there was but one thing to do. "We can all pray," he said in Tallahassee. "And I intend to do some praying tonight that it redirects itself." After leaving the tiny spice island of Grenada in ruins, Ivan was on course to pound Jamaica today and pummel Cuba tomorrow.

Each year, thousands of boaters venture into the coastal waterways of the eastern United States. Most have uneventful trips, but some have emergencies and must rely on a fellow boater or the U.S. Coast Guard for help in making it safely back to shore. In a few cases, a boater disappears without a trace from these waters. There's no report of a radio transmission, of a "Mayday" call, or of a distant flare spotted in the night. Boater and vessel are simply never seen again. Following is the story of one such disappearance.

Snorkeling wasn't enough for 68-year-old Polly Lamartin.She didn't want to view the ocean underworld from above; she wanted to be among those thousands of little-seen, little-known sea creatures. So she and her 70-year-old husband, Fred, tossed away their snorkels and donned respirators and air tanks."There was no way I could get down to see the things I really wanted to see, so after about a year I finally convinced my husband to take a scuba diving course with me," Mrs. Lamartin said.After eight weeks of intensive classroom and pool training at the Annapolis Scuba Center, the Annapolis couple was ready.
