Your own 'best places to retire' list

A woman with an umbrella walks along the shoreline of Lanikai Beach during a brief sunrise sunshower in Kailua, Hawaii, May 28, 2004. Hanauma Bay, about 20 miles south of Lanikai Beach topped the 14th annual ranking out today from Stephen Leatherman, the Florida environmenal scientist known as "Dr. Beach". Hawaii's beaches have dominated the number one position although Florida beaches were most numerous on Leatherman's most recent list. Hawaii's Hanalei Bay on the north shore of Kauai also earned a spot. Kaanapali Beach on Maui, last year's national winner, was excluded from the survey as was Lanikai Beach. Once a beach earns the top spot on Leatherman's list as Lanikai and Kaanapali Beach did in years past, he removes it from consideration. BLIFE REUTERS/Lucy Pemoni  LP/JDP
