The variables involved in planning a Caribbean family vacation can be daunting enough to send the weak scurrying back to a condo in Sarasota, Fla. Ideal for honeymooners or stressed-out grown-ups, many Caribbean resorts are designed for those who need to get away from it all. Yet children seem to need something to do other than lounging on sunny beaches. Picky teenage travelers need something to do other than sneaking into casinos. (At least, their parents think so.) And the deal-breaker is that many remote Caribbean destinations require changing planes.

A Memorable Place One small spirit still burns brightly By Jenny Chrest When I left for a two-month backpacking trip through Europe two weeks after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, the world was a complicated place. The ugliness of hate, the horror of impending war, the unbelievable loss of life -- all this, along with fear, hung over my head, even though it didn't dampen my excitement. This trip, a sort of freeform wandering through Western Europe, meant many things to me. I was searching for ideas about the world, for inspiration, for a respite from trying to figure out what to do with my life.

After a morning of snorkeling at the Marinarium nature preserve in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, in July, a storm was fast approaching. The darkness of the looming skies and the reflection of the sun off the water really made the turquoise water pop. It was a beautiful scene, and this picture captures it perfectly.
