The sea pronounces something, over and over, in a hoarse whisper; I cannot quite make it out.

Hiiii Everyone!

Finally, we are back home!

Yes, we were supposed to return 3 days ago but we ended up overstaying and came back only just yesterday!

Goa always has that effect on you. It is such a lovely place you just don’t want to leave.

The night before we were supposed to return, we all got very depressed that our vacation was ending. Just one more day is what we kept wishing for. And then we realised we can just simply stay back.

Everything was in place - the resort was available for a few more days, Mum and Dad didn’t have to report back to work because, as you know, we are all leaving for Delhi anyway. There couldn’t have been better excuses to overstay.

We are glad we did because it was on the last day of our stay that we got some perfect sunset pictures. All throughout our stay we spent our evenings on one beach or the other, hoping for that perfect sunset.

But it was elusive. Even during the evenings the air was thick with humidity and combined with the already soaring temperatures, it made the sunset a hazy, orange affair. It was very enjoyable but never made a good photograph.

But on the last evening of our stay, the sky cleared up. We were in Colva, one of the southern beaches in Goa.

The air was cooler, the tides seemed stronger and the sun set on the horizon making a perfect picture.

It was a beautiful evening.

We went for a long walk along the shore, chased crabs, played chase and after one last swim in the sea, came back and packed our bags.

No more regrets this time that the vacation had ended. We have had a truly lovely time and collected memories for a life time…


We are linking to SKYWATCH FRIDAY. Please do go over there if you want to sky watch!

Such beautiful pictures you were able to capture. M says there is nothing more peaceful than being by the water - it bring a tranqulity to otherwise hectic lives.
