Hey, Laluks, Fantastic photo of Jog falls there, thanks for sharing
it seems you are starting to get addicted to the drive to Coastal Karnataka, seeing the frequency of your trips to this region.

Great write up. You've covered it all so well. Just came across it last night and went through it all. I enjoyed it very much. Only one error. The Church you mentioned in goa as the Saligao church is actually the Church of Candolim village. You can also see it from the lighhouse.
thanks for sharing
Oh! is it. I saw the board to Saligaon around there. My bad. Thanks for the correction.

Thanks yaar.
I am from Trivandrum, and my stay in Bangalore makes me miss the coast like anything. Childhood memories never die off . So Trivandrum or Goa is the destination. It is the same distance for me.

Laluks,
The Saligoa Church is named "Mae De Deus" much smaller than the Candolim church. It also doesnt have mangalore tiles on the roof anymore. The wooden rafters were removed in 2008 May and they have Iron and Steel with the Maroon plastic sheeting.

Something I forgot to mention earlier. Incase no one has commented the huge mansion you saw on the road to the Aguada jail belongs to a parsi gentleman named Jimmy Gazdar

Your photos and write up is awesome.

It makes me want to go to Goa soon

Thanks once again for the information updates.
Goa is a destination which never bores you, I have been craving for more always at the end of the trip

Had been to the fish stall today. Boy oh Boy - the sight of huge "Kaane" (lady fish), Squids, Tiger Prawns, Rock Lobsters, Pomfrets makes me feel like driving to Goa and Mangalore coast now. But for now, its feasting time in Bangalore!!

Just went through your blog/travelogue. It was my time to work and leave for some appointments but I just couldn't tear myself away. Awesome writeup and photography. Makes me take a long leave just to keep exploring these places. I, for sure, am headed to coastal Karnataka this monsoon.

Thanks again. :-)

I was lucky to have a forced bachelor weekend in native. Mom prepared me some fresh prawns and raw mango curry with coconut milk, mouth watering taste and flavour. Believe me I had no competition for meals since wifey was back in BLR, finished 1Kg prawns in two meals myself .

Lalu, i'm sure it stimulated your taste buds and gave another push for GOA.

Siva, you too?

Don't know. Last year I hear it was too bad in September with floods.

I love the beaches in rain. Its a different kind of feeling. I can sit on a shack watching the rains and the waves blending till eternity.

I was thinking that, next time Lalu would stop over at your mom's place and consume another KG of prawns..

but as he is tied down with work, the mom as well as prawns are saved, be it in Kerala or at Goa.

Its not that I dont love the rains and the beaches. But a shining sun and the beach makes a perfect combination to me ! hey, will the shacks be still open, i thought they all break it down and bring it up during the next season ???
