Our next morning at Palolem beach was as bright as the beach huts we stayed in. They were called Sai Valentines, Sai meaning Saint in Hindi as a combination Sai Baba and Saint Valentine. What an invention! hehe :) We used to adore this view with bushy palm trees at the back.
Here is the first hut we got - colorful, simple, perfect for seaside vacations. We tried to lie in hammock too, but it wasn't comfortable to get out of it.
Of course that one of the main aims of ours was to SWIM! I was taught swimming by my parents when I was small, my D learnt swimming himself about 2 years ago, going to the swimming lessons in early morning, 5 am! I am happy that he got such determination to do it! So we enjoyed warm water of the sea immensely... amazing experience, so much of joy.
I couldn't stop from collecting few seashells - one of the beauties of the sea. Now I regret I didn't get more of them, but may be next time.
After pleasant water procedures we were very hungry and wen tin search of breakfast. On the way I took the picture of the ad board - 80 % written in Russian! For those who are not aware, Goa is an abode, for some a sanctuary, of Russians! I was so happy to see many of such boards, menus and other written words in Russian there.
Finally we settled in one of the cafes with a wonderful sea view just in front of your eyes. That morning we felt we were taking a long awaited rest. I was so happy sitting there and doing particularly nothing!
Our breakfast arrived - it was yumm! My D had English style, I - Spanish style breakfast as they call it. Don't know whether they actually look like this, but it didn't matter as soon as we liked what we got!Then we had a walk back to our huts. There were many boats on the shore at that time of the day, later fisher men would rule them to the sea to catch seafood for restaurant dinners.
As I had mentioned already, Goa has strong Christian influence and here we found small church facing the sea.
Goa has MANY dogs who keep on lying here and there on the sand and then ask for food from tourists in the cafes. But this one was a dog of an Indian woman who used to come every morning to clean this sand and if needed, hotel rooms.
Time flew while we were relaxing and feeling happy to be in such a beautiful place. The sunset at the sea is a special one... I love this pinkish sky and other people in no hurry.
In the evening we again went to try out local eating points and the moon, which turned this way in India, was the witness of our happiness. The next day was going to be not less great but even adventurous.
Good night, my friends and I appreciate your kind comments and wishes! Blessings and hugs to all of you!
