It is Sky Watch Friday again! Or there are 40 minutes left of it actually! The day went in a whirl. One thing is certain, I do not like to pack. We are leaving for a short mountain trip tomorrow and as usual nothing is packed. But then we are going in the evening. So there is time to do a sky watch post quickly. While I was thinking about the post, I realized that I do so many mountain collections but I hardly ever do beach collections for Sky Watch. So I am setting it right today. The first picture in this post is from the Mandvi Beach in Gujarat.
The Lone Tree, Havelock Beach, Andaman Islands, India
Isn’t it a thing of beauty? Havelock was a memorable destination for me. The first where I went scuba diving. Even otherwise, it is stunningly beautiful. This was just behind my hotel, Sea Shell. I remember that they used to put coconut water in water containers! And what fun it was. I will also remember Havelock because it was the place where my camera met a very watery grave!
Heysham Beach, Lancashire, UK
I visited Heysham and Morecambe because they were close to Lancaster where I used to go for work. UK is the only place I have visited where beaches are cold! All my walks were done wrapped up lightly even in what they call summers! But those were pretty walks!
Koggala Beach, Sri Lanka
I saw a stilt fishing photograph on the cover of a HR text-book first! And then I went to Koggala where stilt fishing is done. It is quite touristy. The fisherman ask for money upfront if you wish to take pictures. But I still enjoyed it a lot.
Byndoor Beach, Coastal Karnataka, India
I saw the beauty of coastal Karnataka on my recent trip to the region in May. This was also a first, when I saw sea meeting the backwaters.
Maafushi Beach, Maldives
My most exotic beach vacation has been to Maafushi Island, Maldives. It was stunningly beautiful. I wish I get to go back to that enchanted land once again!
