Here we honeymooned—Los Brisos Hotel—view the same, room the same, private balcony, hammock perfect for lovemaking.   Pacific waves carried us, tossed us, filled our swimsuits with sand.  I can afford more at the bar today, order Margaritas at the pool—going back, back through the dark labyrinth, so many detours to the sun—face older, body thicker, feet more tired.
