The goal of my ocean vacations as a teenager was light hair and dark skin (baby oil and lemon juice). I'd plant my sticky, slithery self in the sun--careless and ready to toast.

The goal of my ocean vacation as a mom: searching the hot sand for shells with holes to string on a rosy strap and around the neck of my daughter's pale neck.

Wouldn't you know that the second scenario produces a pretty good tan, too?
