Thumbs up More of the pine and lunch.

While we were at the pine valley, it started drizzling again and this time it was a bit in a bat & ball kind. We quickly decides to walk back and try to get my children safe from the rains. But they seem to be in their own world enjoying the beautiful atmosphere around (JayD will post pics soon).
I somehow manage to get them and make our way back.

We reach the resort and see that the Kaar o baar is still on and happening.
Bombatt, Patchyboy & their families were inside having a small rest in the lobby sofas.

Soon, the lunch was ready and it was asked that they arrange a buffet setup for us. It was a nice and tasty meal and we enjoyed it.
Now, the big table in the middle which was occupied by most of us where now recalling last night's events and having hearty, loud and screaming laughs. The other guests were staring at us and wondering with their mouths wide open. Some should've thought of us as some crazy hispanics!
Ishan was happy because he got something other than Kerala food while Mrs. Patchyboy was upset that she didn't get to eat some good Kerala avial, appam, fish curry etc.. Sorry folks. Blame it on that crazy drunkard Chowdhary from UP for this.

Now, JayD will post some pics and then I will be back with the rest reports.
