A Trip To The Beach


I had been pining for the beach and its waters for quite sometime now. it really didn't help to know one of my friends reside near the place i consider heaven. so you can imagine how i jumped at the thought of visiting the beach, not Vizaq but closer home. samik is on a leave so we had planned not to make a big deal on Christmas and new years and take a day off to visit the beach.

despite the aching limbs and eyes that are dying for some sleep, I'm up trying to pen down the beautiful moments i spent today. we had decided that we'd call it an early night yesterday, but as usual we both went to bed really late, after a lot of hassles arranging a car on rent to drop us to the bus stop at an ungodly hour. moreover sleep never comes to those excited and surely not when it is so required. having gone to bed at 1 we both had to wake at 4am to get ready for the cab to arrive. i got picked at 5.30 and by 6 we were at the bus stop. damn our luck the bus got delayed and we left at 8 instead of our scheduled departure at 6.30am. imagine our luck when we reached at 12.30 we inquired of the time for our return journey back home we heard that contrary to what we had planned and had been told by the Volvo bus provider, the departure was at 1.30 instead of 3.30 as we had been told. samik was furious ready to explode however things turned around eventually.

now surely we dint pay a fortune to just travel to and fro and not spend time at the beach at all... so we kinda did a little fuss, called up the service provider of the bus and finally we were refunded our ticket money for two seats in a bus that left at 3.45! with that managed we proceeded to this nice little seaside restaurant where we ordered sea fish for lunch. which was rather sumptuous and then we went on to the beach. and my my what fun we had! to sample the beach fun click here for my photo blog.

bus ride home wasn't too comfy because we were sitting near the door, the TV was put on full blast and the chill coming through the door really killed us. i sat through 5 and a half hour journey straight. we had to change another bus then take the metro and then walk all the way home.i can almost drop dead here and now but the beauty of the trip and the fun moments i spent with samik is something worth all this trouble we took. today one of my dreams came true, i always wanted to visit the beach with the one person i value the most; samik.

PS- will surely come back and reply to the comments and go to your blog to comment too but that has to wait till tomorrow. please bear with me.don't forget to visit my photo blog..
