Gentle Gaints

The bond towards the beach and the sand takes me often to the prominent Mandvi beach. Mandvi is another princely town and a wonder in itself. Everything from buildings to sidewalks are ancient .Whizzing past the the old city through the narrow crowded lanes over taking camel carts,rickshaws,hand pulled carts and donkey carvans we reach our destination Mandvi on the west coast of  Gujarat flanking the Arabian Sea. The beach holds a twisting stretch of white sand dyed by blue waters with the ancient windmills standing tall on the other side.This beach is characterized with it’s distinctive camel and horse rides on the dunes . It is enlivening to fancy the ocean periodically. While the ocean is cool the lure of a swim fills my mind, during which it is the flash back and the terror to an horrific incident that keeps me away from water.I will surely testify the horrific incident in my next blog which pedestals the miracle of my Saviour.

Here in my blog you can glide across few additional pages displaying the beach,camels and our locals.

The pleasure of camel ride on the beach is incomparable !!


 

The waters here are shallow and thus one can visit the place right round the year. Mandvi is an hour down the road from Bhuj
