salt water cure: Belize

" 'Do you know of a cure for me?'
" 'Why yes," he said, 'I know of a cure for everything: salt water.'
" 'Salt water?' I asked him.
" 'Yes', he said. 'in one way or the other. Sweat, or tears, or the salt sea."
--Isak Dinesen, "The Deluge at Norderney," in Seven Gothic Tales

We just returned from a week in Belize.

There was salt water in all its forms on this trip. But mostly the salt sea.

And it was just what we needed. A perfect balance of adventure and rest, laughter and serious discussion. Our marriage needed it, our souls needed it.
