Konkan Trip - 1/Jan/2010

I had a perfect start for year 2010 on Murud beach of Konkan :)

 Weather was awesome as this is ideal time to visit beaches…

We 8 friends were out there for the sole purpose of having a blast...

Evening time was lovely...

And the sunset was awesome... Crowd was there, but who cares when you are with 7 old friends, and actually crowd was much lesser than Baga and Calangute beaches of Goa..


This is if you don't know what does it mean by "I had too much" ;)

I went to beach early in the morning to have some good captures...

Snails... Have you ever seen them in a quantity like this!!!

And I always thought camel is something you find in deserts...

A lonely bottle on beach...

Well, I also tried my hand on photography with my new Olympus SP590 UZ :)

For the people who wish to visit the place, it is simple. Go to Dapoli in Konhan, if you don't have own/hired vehicle, lot of transport is available to this place, from there it is a 15 km run to Murud. There is lot of beach side accommodation available, we stayed at Sagar Tara hotel (+919271147003), the place is not hi5, but good for a group as well as family, they provide mosquito mats, good knight and other basic necessary things, service is also Ok. All this in RS 600. Lot of good food options available around where you get Konkan type food, especially sea food, I am a vegetarian, so I am not talking much about sea-food, particularly fish.... Veggies can still have Ukdi che Modak, Tandool Poli, Solkadhi etc.. :)
