Envision escaping to a secluded island destination where even your iPhone doesn't roam. Paradise. Images of idyllic, uninhabited beaches and authentic local fare instantly flood your brain. Then you start thinking about long flights, passports and pricey accommodations, and the idea quickly flees your mind. Wait — come back! Did you know that there are exotic islands just off the coast of Maryland? Yes, really. We've uncovered three remote retreats, all within a three-hour drive from Baltimore, where you can unplug, recharge, and, blessedly, not know a soul.

A movie of unforced nobility and quiet pleasures, "Butterfly" works on all sorts of levels: as a rationale for why good people do bad things, as a condemnation of political movements that forget about the people they're leading, and as a testimony to the value of a good teacher. Set in the days just before the Spanish Civil War, "Butterfly" unfolds through the eyes of Moncho (Manuel Lozano), a young boy deathly afraid of starting school because he's heard the teacher hits people. One look at Don Gregorio (Spanish actor Fernando FernM-an Gomez)

DOBBINS ISLAND - These steep, sandstone cliffs form the great memory bank of the Magothy River, holding within them centuries-old tales of buried treasure and budding romance. Throughout history, boaters have flocked to this crescent-shaped wisp of land across from Pasadena where an 18th-century Dutch ship reportedly wrecked and wild goats once roamed. As the shoreline around it rapidly develops, Dobbins Island has remained unchanged, the sort of place where a newcomer could be forgiven for half-expecting TV's Gilligan to emerge from the carpet of greenery for a marshmallow roast.

Editor's note: Searching for Captain Flint's buried treasure, a noble group of landlubbers mistakenly hires Long John Silver's treacherous crew. The two sides try to outsmart each other as they race for the gold. Dogs are the main characters in this retelling of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic.The pirates bounded through jungle like mindless pups until they stumbled upon one of Captain Flint's weather-beaten markers -- the remains of a skeleton pointing toward a nearby tree."That's a strange way to mark a trail," observed Long John.

There's not much we miss about South Florida. For nearly five years, we put up with the traffic and the crowds, the tacky strip shopping centers and the constant sense of danger from sun-crazed criminals and 80-year-old drivers retired from Long Island.But there is one place we truly miss -- a little-known spit of sand and sea-grape trees called Hutchinson Island on Florida's Treasure Coast, a two-hour trip north from downtown Miami and about 45 minutes from Palm Beach International Airport.

IN THE BEGINNING was the Word . . . and also the dogwood tree, gnarled with the years, that rose in a tangle of branches and blossoms to loom high above our backyard.I was 10. A fifth-grader in Tallahassee. The year was 1953, and I had just discovered the magic of books. Home each afternoon from school, I raced through my chores and then carried "While The Clock Ticked" out to the flowering dogwood.In a flash, I climbed to my perch on one of the upper branches.Safe at last, I leaned back against the scarred trunk, stretched comfortably . . . and flipped to the beginning of Chapter 5. The Hardy Boys were in serious trouble!

Would you entrust your life to a sea captain with Ping-Pong balls for eyes?Sure, if he's Kermit the Frog, one of the stars of "Muppet Treasure Island." You know nothing terribly bad is going to happen, even when mutinous pirates are aboard. There's not quite enough of the traditional Muppet humor in this latest film, but it's sweet and fun, especially for kids.Tim Curry is the obligatory human star, as the deceptively friendly buccaneer Long John Silver, who plots to take the buried treasure that cabin boy Jim Hawkins (played by a winning young actor named Kevin Bishop)
