I’VE ALWAYS LOVED THE WATER, and I have my parents to thank for that. When I wasn’t swimming in it, I was learning to sail on it during Wisconsin’s brief (and precious) summer months. Each August, our club had a family banquet to commend all the junior sailors who had spent the past eight weeks mastering basic knots, navigating the buoys, and righting tipped dinghies. For the racing students, awards like the Commodore’s Trophy were doled out to the fastest among us with great fanfare by—you guessed it—the commodore. But one year, my instructors decided to create a special distinction just for me: the Leisure Award. As the head instructor (who pronounced the word “lehz-jurr,” though he wasn’t at all British) explained to a packed dining room: “Elizabeth likes to…

I AM A REALLY LUCKY GRANDMOTHER. My two grandchildren, Jude, age 7; and Truman, age 6, have become such avid travelers and adventurers that planning new family trips is both a joy and a challenge. I never would have guessed seven years ago that I would be scouring travel magazines for more amazing places to visit. A few years ago, we flew to Ecuador and went to the Galápagos, where Jude and Truman practiced their Spanish and discovered so much about these fascinating islands. We photographed iguanas and blue-footed boobies; mourned Lonesome George, the giant Pinta Island tortoise who had died since my previous visit, 20 years prior; and learned about environmental stresses on the wildlife, which, sadly, had been much more plentiful when I was last there. The following year,…
