Marina Beach at Chennai is for sure not the most beautiful beach I have ever seen but I have to say it is going to remain very special for me always. It was the first time when my daughter saw sea here. Initially she was a bit overwhelmed. But by the second day (at Besant Nagar Beach) she was already demanding to go further and to be left alone! We did neither but that is another matter as the sea was very choppy.

It is difficult to click pictures with my daughter around but I still managed to click some. The bright colored saris caught my eye and hence I took this one.
Merry Go Round at Marina Beach, Chennai
My daughter had a nice time at the merry go round and I had some time to try and capture the moon! She went on it twice, but the additional time I had, it still did not improve the quality of my pictures!
A Fortune Teller at Marina Beach, Chennai
My dauhter was attracted by the parrot that the fortune teller had in the cage! As I was walking behind them I got an opportunity to click the picture. But she soon got distracted and did not demand that we engage with the parrot or the fortune teller!

And finally this was clicked at the underpass when we were walking back to get an auto to our hotel. I have to review that hotel but that is a tale (rant is more like it) for another day.
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
