[Pic-Blog]~ Of just another day…

10 Aug

To begin with…got up (early???) morning and as usual stood by my bedroom window!
The pic below is the view from the window of my 3rd floor apartments in Adyar
I love this site every morning, especially during spring season!! This collage of leaves and flowers happens to cover the ever-busy road below….Lovely! ๐Ÿ™‚

And ya yesterday…along with a few friends, I had been around the Besantnagar Beach here in Chennai, TN, India. It’s called the Elliot’s beach, but putting all complications aside…we prefer to call it the Bessie Beach!! ๐Ÿ˜‰
Here are a few pics of that!! ๐Ÿ˜€

The structure you see in the center is the Karl Schmidt Memorial…This memorial is named after the Dutch sailor who lost his life in the process of saving a drowning swimmer.

A closer view of the memorial…sad to see its almost in ruins, with couples coochie-cooing and lazy butts lying down amidst theย  wide clearly visible cracks…sigh!!!

The view of the memorial from the road…

It was cool to see the beach cleaner (it stunk the last time I went there)…though I don’t think it would remain the same for long! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Can you imagine…thisย pic belowย was shot at 12 45pm…the sun no where to be seen, cool breeze, hard hitting waves…just amazing weather!! Hmmm….right time for the young couple to get along! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Till next time…signing off!! ๐Ÿ˜€
