Let's assume you're reading this at work. Stuck in a cubicle the color of kitty litter. If you were to leave-just leave!-and get in your car rightnow, you could be soaking up sand, sun and slushy drinks by nightfall. On an island. No, not Mackinac-not that we have anything against tooling around in horse-drawn carriages. These four islands, all within driving distance, are a bit more obscure-from the one that serves beer in beach pails to the one that serves up quirky Canadian-isms (and a whole lot of local wine). Trust us, you won't miss the palm trees.
