It was 5:30 AM in the morning when I woke up hearing Amma doing some work in the kitchen. I went to see her and she made a cup of Chaa for me after which I put on my shoes and went for a walk outside to do some birdwatching. I saw many beautiful birds but couldn't capture them due to very little natural light available in the morning. Later, I went ahead and saw a herd of cows and buffaloes going in lines towards the far side which I hoped that it would lead me to the beach. The shepherd was a very nice man and took me along with him, through the hilly forests and then the sight of this beautiful Velas beach. There we saw a Brahmini Sea Eagle flying above and Mohan Upadhaya had told me that it was a rare sighting these days and there was only one pair of the bird in the whole belt of three coastal villages. We were on a big rock on the hill and couldn't find any good way down to the beach so he suggested we should climb down this big rock that leads to the beach. I was a bit reluctant as it was a very high and steep rock but with his motivation I slowly climbed down with all the energy left in my body. This big hard rock had some bird nests on it which were made by the bird's sliva as what the shepherd told me.
This beach never fails to impress those who love nature. Beautiful birds flying a few feet above the sea waters was a bliss to see and the bubbler crab on the beach!! Bubbler crabs find their food in the sand and they make very tiny sand balls as a record to know that they've had that batch of the sand.
Went to Amma's home after that and there after bathing and getting ready Amma cooked me and Mohan Kanda Poha with fresh coconut garnished over it. It was so tasty that I had two full plates of it.
