It's Conoor time today . We had a 9:15 train to catch from Ooty to conoor ..yes....the toy train !
One more first for Y .. His enthusiasm to see a real train , station , guard uncle and the tunnel was immeasurable.. He could put lives within the otherwise bookish pictures.
We had a beautiful journey .. viewing the tea estates, the pine forests, the lil colourful cottages, mountains and tunnels.
We shouted our throats out when in the tunnel matching our kids excitement..
We de boarded in Conoor where our cab driver was waiting for us .. We went to the Sims park and enjoyed the paddle boat .. Another first for my kiddo. We fed the fishes with moong dal and it was mesmerising how all the fishes flocked to eat them ...
Next we had a sumptuous lunch at Jharokha. Regaining our energy levels we went to the Lambs rock..... Nice view points and a rocky path ..
After winning over a few cranky tantrums we went to our next destination .. the much awaited tea estates ... and it was worth the wait.. lush green bushes and the lovely mountains ! Then we marched to our last point for the day the Dolphin nose point where we had our lil adventure with the monkeys ... Notorious monkeys wanted the candies in our bag and we were amazed !It even photo bombed us ;) Then we came back to our resort and rested.
