Our leisure at Digha:
After checking in, we hurriedly freshen up and went out for a walk. It was the 28 th of December and it comparably less crowded than normal time. But it lit and dressed up like a fairground. Both the food shops and gift shops were glittering. We were fascinated like a bee to the light but these can wait, first we rushed to the staircases that lead to the sea.
The view of the sea after so many days, so soothing. Though it was nighttime, we can see the lathers and waves. We decided to feel the peace for a moment. It was peace of mind. There was plenty of cement benches for seating. So we sat and drank cups of coffee and cherish the first break after such a long time. Then we were ready to explore the foods.
Digha has an exotic collection of seafood. The open seafood joints are just extraordinary. They have a whole lot of variety of fishes. Not only fish but also crabs, prawns, shrimps, octopus, chicken what's not there. Under fish there were pomfret, hilsa, mackerel, Bhola, chital, vetki were available. All are offered for both tandoor(roasted) and fry. We were puzzled for a time to choose what to eat first. The first day we tried some tiger prawn tandoors(Rs.30/- per pc), shrimps fry. Then we sat some more time at the seaside road. We return to our hotel after having dinner with crab at a local food-joint . we didn't like the crab that much as it was cooked like a Chinese dish, not a Bengali curry. We were a little bit tired because of the journey, so that night we went to sleep a little bit early and decided to observe the sunrise on the seabeach next morning.
