I had some success and finally chose a pair of Havaianas after looking at thousands. The stores are everywhere and they seem to have separate stock. Back to the beach for one last swim before we walked all the way back. One sure way to try and work off all the hotel breakfasts. I think we are both losing the battle with our waistlines.
