Dawn broke over the Sea of Cortez with a glimmer of sunlight, then cast its shimmer over the waters that lapped into the San José del Cabo Harbor. Tiny forms in the distance made themselves known as fisherman, boats and then buildings; mountains emerged in the far far distance, while the omnipresent palm trees took on form and detail nearby. Before the mist could disappear, the sun threw down a dreamy golden layer, ethereal and temporary, really just a brief promise of cool air, until the full-on sun would bring the day’s tropical still heat. ♣
