Guys, watch out for the new checkpost that's come up on the beach drive. you would not be able to reach Bella Ciao by car if you are coming through New Beach Road.

You can always walk though.

@Mi10 . Saw Singam last night @ Prarthana with my wipers swishing !!!, absolute paisa vasool.

I guess the 9 PM meets are right-timed for me

Had been out, and by the time I returned Bakiya's call it was time for wraps in an hour or so !

Oh yes, awesome weather during the weekend. I don't remember the last time it felt so pleasant at the beach at 5PM in the evening.

Ofcourse, after setting the rendez-vous at 5PM, our D-Bhpian lands at close to 7PM. But it was good coming to a meet after 2-3 years. Me and Bakiya were the first to come. Followed by madan8878 in his new Fiesta 1.6 - sweet car. Followed by nitrous, petrol_head and nitrous' friend.

Yep, learnt it the hard way. Having never been there, I left the car at the checkpost and walked it down. Not bad. Nice stretch of beach - hope the ChennaiCorp guys develop it on the lines of Besant Nagar beach.

missed this one despite staying across the road and getting the "SCAM" -D-BHPIAN's sms.

I was referring mainly to the road running parallel to the beach, which could be done better. Currently, the sides at many places are not tarred and are sandy. Infact, they look sandy enough to bog down the cars parked in it. As we were talking, a guy parked his Ikon with all wheels in the sand - wonder if he could get the car out.

P.S.: Ofcourse, nitrous parked the car such that both the LHS wheels of the mistress were on the road to provide traction.
