I recently stayed at the Novotel Vizag and I could see the Ramakrishna Beach right across the road from my room. The view of the Beach Road from the Novotel Rooftop was incredible too.
However, I could also see how crowded the beach would get in the evening. So, I decided to take a morning walk at the Ramakrishna Beach in Vizag.
In my daily life, I now get up really early almost every day due to my daughter’s tennis practice. But there was a time when I would hate getting up in the morning with some force! Not any longer. I am more resilient about early mornings now. And I was rewarded for my effort. Not only the beach was less crowded, the weather was nicer too.
There was agenda for this walk, I was ready to walk as much or as little as I wanted. And by my standards I remained on the ‘little’ side. My nephew tells me I travel only to click pictures and soon this walk too turned into a solo photowalk! I always knew we consider water sacred but I related it more to river or mountain lakes. But I saw people doing some kind of prayers by the sea too.
A lot of families were around and it is easy to spot who is the designated photographer of the group. I requested one such young girl to click a picture of mine.
I saw these girls on the beach and I wanted to click pictures. I did it from far and I walked a little further. While coming back the girls approached me and asked me to take their pictures and send it to them. None of them had a cell phone on the beach! They adopted me as their unofficial photographer. And we had a great time. As promised I send them the pictures, I hope they liked it.
There was a time when I used to walk with a vengeance and called it a holiday too. It has not happened in a while now. I did a short walk in both the directions and then walked back to the hotel looking for food!
