Unveiling Goa-Day 3

It was around 7am when i opened my eyes in same feeling,blue beautiful ocean and captivating silence.
We have really enjoyed our cup of tea more than ever seeing that emerald blue.Talking a lot about how life is in daily routine which start with a rush,literally running to the kitchen for making tea in the morning and mind kept occupied with the thoughts of making our breakfast and lunch.But here it was suddenly all different.We made our way to Havana and ordered  tea which took 20min to come but we were in complete peace so busy seeing the majestic ocean where caring for passing time is pity.When tea came we enjoyed every sip with all talks of past,present and future, shared our dreams and many more.




Again we did our morning swimming routine and got ready for the next trip which was a boat ride to see dolphins from close distance(we were already lucky to get their glimpse from valley),covering few islands and enjoy small-small beaches which lies behind those rocky islands......We were punctual so out boat started making its way onto water and in no time we were off shore amid the sea.It was roughly 10 min we spotted a dolphins swimming a bit far from our boat,then suddenly other side there was a couple of Dolphins very close to our boat.We were more focused to capture their snap and they disappeared.....

BOULDERS @ COLA BEACH-MY REGULAR BOULDERING GROUND
Then taking boat around monkey island and butterfly island we landed to Honeymoon beach(whose name really surprised me because i did not find any resemblance with the name) .It was indeed small beach and water was not that clean,only good part was gigantic boulders which kept me running and climbing on most of them.After spending sometime there,we headed back to the Palolem.
@NOON-THESE BIRDS WERE ONLY HABITANT ON GALJIBAGA BEACH



In beach we took our Lunch and headed for next destination that was to uncover all hidden or less explored beaches in south dead end of Goa.Target first Patnem beach,which was hardly 10 min drive from Palolem.A big stretch of white sand,comparatively less crowded and had really beautiful restaurant chain.

AMAZING SUNSET AT COLA BEACH

Next one was Rajbagh Beach another 20 min drive but very scenic,quite and amazing.We loved everything and kept walking there ..


ROMANTIC TIME WATCHING SUNSET

OUR DELICIOUS YUMMY FOOD



Next destination was Talpona beach.The way from Rajbagh to talpona was very scenic .Roads were quite elevated and narrow.They passed through small cottages of local Goan family.We crossed Talpona without stopping and headed for Galjibaga Beach with thought of covering it while way back to Palolem. Roughly after 30 min we were again on breathtaking beautiful beach which had rows of gigantic trees on the shore.Beach was absolutely clean and dedicated for rare species turtle nestling.I inquired from lifeguard about turtles, he answered "they only come in night".So we made our walk on long stretch of white sand and climbing on beautiful red boulders which eventually was  dwelling place for all size of crab.After Cola beach if we loved any place most it was this one.We could feel a complete trance,peace and vista of another kind.We kept relishing the beauty until our stomach started reminding us for food.Though it was BIG ?????????? if we get anything to eat here.We walked to the beach side which looked like some temporary structure but once we kept our demand to Surya(name of the restaurant boy) he nodded with complete hospitality that your order will be ready in 10 min.Hospitality was something in which Goa out shined Thailand in my opinion poll.People of Goa are really heart winner.In right 10 min our order was on table and we took as much as time we could take to eat that super delicious food spiced with love and hospitality of Goa .Surya kept talking to us about his business,tourist and other places to visit in near by area.That's the specialty of Indian people,we open up our heart very soon and eventually stranger become a friend.With complementing for his delicious food and tons of thanks we waved our bye but perhaps both of us made our mind set that this place is going to be our next stay very soon.We departed from Galjibaga and made our way to Talpona beach,which was again beautiful,unmanned,peaceful beach.We enjoyed sunset here and then started our drive back to Palolem.........,,,
