Kannur - Calicut

Started from Bangalore one Friday Evening.. breaked at Hassan and then continued on to Kannur

This is in Coorg on the way to Kannur.. we are taking a break.. Carl , the dog is as usual freaking out ...

Just as we were coming down the ghats.. we came across this lake which was absolutely paradise.. a still lake if you ever saw one,,,

Thats us and Carl In Hotel Savoy in Kannur. This place is a nice place to stay...Rooms are cheap and food is good..  beaches are also nearby.. 

Thats Payambalam beach not far from the hotel.. it was nice to walk the dog here..

I found this shot absolutely adorable.. LOL.. Cral reflecting on his doggy thoughts and framed in posterity !!!

This is the sunset from the Mascot Beach House in Kannur where we stayed... if you dont mind spending money.. you could stay here.. the tarrifs start from 850/- per night.. but food is real cheap... and the view is spectacular... we were put up here by a friend whose wedding we had gone to attend .. there in the second snap shot you see rain clouds covering the horizon !!

Memories from Coorg

These photos are from my trip to Coorg....

Here we are on our way to Coorg we have almost reached Hassan and took some time to bask in the sun...

The first one is at the Namdroling Monastery Gates and the next one is inside the monastery. Absolutely peaceful ambiance and one could just sit in front of the statues for a long time letting life pass by... without any worries..

We arrived next at Nisarghadhama.  Here we are walking through the bamboo grooves and the next one is at the hanging bridge which you have to cross to come to this island.

 This is the Wayanad forest we drove through...  Its a 20 kms stretch of forest where you can spot a lot of animals. The second pic is the watering hole where all the animals come to socialise and quench their thirst.. :)

Dubare Elephant Training Camp where you can take elephant rides at your leisure .. Of course there are timings. During monsoon when there is enough water rushing by you can also do white water rafting here... The second pic is where we got to meet Durga Parmeshawari .

As we returned from Dubare the sun was going down slowly and we could not help take advantage of the time of the day... The elephant there is getting ready for rides .. thought it would be a good shot for the camera.

As we reached Valnoor the sun was setting and we also met people who had been fishing for the whole day.

Thats the Baruas at the trying to climb up 360 steps to the top of the hill at Talacauvery.  The other one is at Bhagamandala, where you get to see the confluence of three rivers, Kaveri, Kunnike and Sujyothi.

This was taken in Harini's estate where we stayed. The peppers are being dried here in the sun.  A last shot before we leave..

Harini's dogs who became great friends with us.. did not feel like saying goodbye to them.. hope to see them again...
