The previous post made me realise that most of my outings this year were water-related. The almost-rough monsoon waves of the Arabian Sea, the mighty Ganga, the only reservoir meeting normal capacity levels this year – Khadakvasla Dam, cold water at Tamhini Ghat, and the incredibly serene Mulshi Lake. The one thing that links all these trips for me is rain. While the trip to Rishikesh in May saw random summer rain, all other trips were made in the Western Ghats and around the Konkan belt during the monsoons between June and August. The drawback is the unexciting sky in pictures that I managed between any given two spells of rain.
I am still to see a white sand beach. If things work out fine, I might visit one before the end of this year. Keeping fingers crossed!
This was Khadakvasla. Rains were at their heaviest worst. And so was the traffic. I only managed to click from inside our moving car.
Mulshi Lake was the most spontaneous and fun drive ever. Planned and executed in a snap, this was a perfect little trip I managed to be part of!
And did I have fun or what!
