Smile One lazy afternoon... Into the arabian sea!

My cousins are staying at my place for the week. So, yesterday afternoon, we decide to head out somewhere. The usual choices being the beach, Neyyar dam, ponmudi and of course CCD!

From this thread, http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/street...est-night.html (GEARSHIFT CAME OFF! Inside forest-At night!) you can see that my previous trip to Neyyar dam was really 'eventful'. So decided to hard to the beach this time (as trivandrum guys often do)

The drive is relatively short, and nothing much to describe about. The roads are very good, and at point, hit 110kmph with ease. The WagonR felt very stable, though with the approaching corner being very dangerous, decided to slow down to normal speeds.

Some of you guys must be very familiar with Sanghumukham beach in trivandrum. But the beach is now almost gone, with almost half the road eaten up!

With nothing to do at sanghumukham, we went to valiathura pyre (Have no idea of the spelling ). There things were to change.

Due to the monsoons, the waves were really bashing the bridge with all its might. The whole thing was shaking.

I guess i should just let the pics do all the talking...

The sea swallowed half the main road!


Into the sea...


Moonsoon waves... with all their might!


The 'BIG-BANG'!


Their day as usual...


Whats this bridge thingy called? Did i name it correctly?


WagonR continues to delight! (after the trip)


Onto the shore...


A no non-sense car. (Have to accept its not for beauty contests)


EDIT: I guess imageshack is having some probs.
