We took a road back to Vyrithi (Wayanad) to bypass Calicut, we came across a large number of fishermen selling tons of freshly caught fish to traders who were packing them in ice . The drive was dotted with cold storage facilities and a lot of commercial activity here.
Once we got on to the Calicut bypass road, we bid good bye to the sea, and said hello to the backwaters....yes please!
Backwaters of the Arabian Sea....banana plantations, coconut grooves and what have you....wow ...great drive till we once again ascended on the ghats region.
We got stuck in our first traffic jam and that too on the hair pin bends?? But, fear not, not one vehicle tried overtaking from the wrong side, the traffic police came in later and got the mess sorted. The self restraint of the drivers here was commendable, definitely not the Delhi way of driving :\
Back to the resort and end of one more adventurous day.
Highlight of the day....The Kappad beach and drive along the sea on the Mangalore road. This road takes you all the way to Mangalore besides the sea.
We planned to go all "touristy" today, sightseeing in the district Waynad. To begin with we drove towards **Banasura Dam**
