The first edition, the one that created this group, was as memorable as this one, relive it here.
It took us 3 years to get to the second one, but it was worth the wait.
On a side note, we also expanded the group with two tiny-tots!
We had planned to meet at our place, on a 'holi'day. Good food and conversations led to the plan and the dates were finalised! Of course our star planner DJ detailed, booked and executed the plan. We were going to Diveagar!
This time Shri dropped out and Dhaval-Renu decided to become NRIs. But we welcomed two new members Vishwas and Suchitra (who we kept meeting at dinner/lunch plans but they could not make it to the last trip). So we were 8 adults and 1 tiny-tot (Shanaya) who made the trip to Diveagar on the 25th of March, to enjoy the cool summer breeze and the salty ocean.
Since the trip dates were so close to Supriya's birthday, we decided to celebrate it with a cake. Plans and re-plans later, we decided to buy a full cream cake, since we …

The travel decided to change their pick up point without informing the boarders. Luckily dad was home early and ash and my baggage got a ride through the traffic jam at yerwada. We were panicking about the bus leaving but then were waiting for almost half an hour after the scheduld hour, for the bus to start. Anyhow we thus started our 14 hour journey to the city of gardens! Pree had prepared methichi bhaji (my request) and masale bhaat (my request again) for us. The bus reached majestic at around 12:30 or so, and we were to look for platform 17 on the local bus stand. Yeah, there platforms are not only for trains but also for buses. The bus service is pretty organized there. We were hunting our platform 17. We spotted 15,…
As I mentioned in my last post, we bought an amazing camera that has increased the range of our vision. When we decided to buy a camera though, it was just with the intention of taking snaps that are better than the ones taken by the phone camera. We started out with this one basic need and then since a good zoom is always welcome, settled with the Canon SX60HS after a lot of research.
Once it arrived, we tried giving each function a try and took a few snaps here and there. The first weekend, we thought 'why not give the moon shot a try'. We went to our building parking area, where we could see the moon. We looked at it through the lens and zoomed in, as far as we could go and we were spellbound. We could see the craters, the famous (this name will seem familiar only if you are a 2001 space odyssey fan) Tycho crater, the seas, the undulations. (This is one useful image)
The moon has always mesmerized me, and looking at it up close, firsthand, is a feeling that I am not capabl…
