Default Last 2 photographs

The last two photos are less compressed and hence will take some more time to load. When is the next meet?

Nice pics, Dr.Pull & muneem! Thanks for the quick upload

It was a great meet, my wife and I enjoyed it very much. It was nice meeting you, srijit!

I had a gala time on the way to Cherai and back to the city. The stretch of road from Pathalam to the church immediately after Varapuzha is real fun. The roads were pretty empty and I made it to the South Rlwy Station 15 minutes ahead of time.

Nikki, you have a few snaps too, don't you? Upload them, please

1. Who bought a new Soda?

2. Who used the new Soda as a dining table?

IMHO BOTH should be shot.

It must be the effect of the salty air on him I'm sure Hydra meant Srikant instead.

Amby crossing a weak, wooden bridge that was acting up as the bottleneck, with the heavy weekend traffic

The roads are narrow, and traffic slow moving, but have pleasant vistas.The surrounding water and evening twilight makes it even better..

We stopped en-route for a small pic-break

That prompted some bazooka-wielding BHPians to get to the other side of the road and start shooting

The beach was crowded with lots of kids enjoying their vaction.

Cherai Beach Family Meet on April 26, 2009 (Sunday): Calling all BHPians-img_3288.jpg
While nobody cared a hoot about the beach, planing was on to get some kites to amuse a certain BHPian who missed all the action ;p

Crowded or otherwise, it was impossible to ignore the beautiful sunset.

This was captured by SILVERKNIGHT, and christened by muneem as 'the sun behind bars'

The sunset painted the horizons with a crimson hue, while the sea was a glowing golden pool.

A marquee that attracts all the attention in the forum,was the main attraction off the forum too.

The new SKODA Superb

Cherai Beach Family Meet on April 26, 2009 (Sunday): Calling all BHPians-img_3307.jpg
It even came with umbrellas.We had a good laugh imagining the cost of mending them at a skoda A.S.S.

The meet was really enjoyable, despite some delays and kabab-mein-haddi experience in the restaurant. Thanks to Vivek/Muneem for hosting us at his home/organising the meet.Thanks to all the BHPians and family who made it,I am really looking forward for the next one.Driving down to cochin nowadays on weekends have almost become a habit for us Thrissur guys .

Aravind, Great pics. The dynamic range of the 'sun behind the bars' is excellent. Shot it with that S5 IS?

@Steeroid.

It's Skoda's testdrive car and I was the 'owner' for those few days only. Forget pedestrian friendliness, forget impact protection, forget aerodynamics, that bonnet did pass the test as a beautiful dining table. If anything it was also keeping the food warm.

Now perhaps you could spare me and use that bullet for someone else.
