Goodbye 2017

It is that time of the year, when you invariably look back at the good and bad times of the year gone by.  This post talks about, just that.

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 …
