Beaches

Written for Theme Thursday - Beaches


Sunsets, Sunrises,
The feeling of wet sand under bare feet
Bucket and spade
Sandcastles
The sound of the sea gently lapping the shore
Or the roar of the waves crashing on the beach
People walking at the edge of the water
Ice cream and bhelpuri
Palm trees and Coconut water
Camel rides and Pony rides
Bollywood movie shoots
Cricket matches
Collecting shells and watching the crabs scuttle across
Jumping in and out of the waves

These are some of my beach moments experienced over the years.


Warm Regards

  10. Beautiful imagery. It makes me want to go to the beach!! Lately we have been plagued with rain, so not very good days to go. I am hoping to get back there this summer. We went in May. It was a bit cold but beautiful just the same!

  11. Sand , sea and bhelpuri are irresistible combo. The Juhu beach is not clean . Love the beaches of Goa and Tarkarli beach.

    1. Thanks Kalpana. Was relatively clean in my younger days - of course we played off the main beach near the bungalows. The beaches in Goa are also very commercialised. When we were young we often went to Dahanu and that was beautiful.

  12. ohh bhelpuri!!! why do you have to mention it... now I have craving for bhelpuri and not one shop sells it here. You described some of my favorites things about beaches too.

    1. Thanks Rajlakshmi. We make it at home - you can get all ingredients at the Indian shops here. I'm sure you can get it there too but of course nothing like the bhel back home.
