Samurai San, Amazing capture of emotions !! excellent pics !!

Hari, I was looking forward for the Belur - Chikamagalur drive in daytime but then the circumstances were more critical and it called for more unity and I salute each and every one specially the small kids who took every moment as it came.

Anyway there is always a next time.

Abhi

That was the reason I was little reluctant in the beginning to wash the car. I had my bath and ready for the next agenda. Infact my whole family was ready by 6am hoping to have some stroll in the resort.

But, no option was given and so Srini was also pulled in. Ofcourse to clean his own suppose too be Shiny ford

I should appreciate you man. I can see the "hard work[wash]" in the pictures.

Thanks for compliments. You know after Goa trip and the comments I got of my photography, I made up my mind and immly bought a new camera. But it certainly not as good as Luke and Samurai.

Ok here I go,

This was one hell of a trip, and again like the recent Bangalore Family meets, we had different kinds of terrains, incidents and experiences all 'rolled' into one.

This is among the best of drives I've had in my limited driving experience.
Thank you all for making this trip worth it, I and my family will cherish this for ages.

This trip gave a new meaning to bonding and friendship, I never felt I was with people I hardly know, it was more like one big family out to have a whale of a time, and boy! that was exactly what we had.

Now since the initial report is already put up, i'll just post some pics from my camera.

Say me that. Btw, we need to get a BUS to have all the family member in one vehicle And still its growing, wondering what would be next

One more thing. I need to remind the car to refer anyone to my wife or kid now. They also easily recognize the person when I refer them by cars than by handle/names.

The fun in the water is well documented by Samurai who arrived to be greeted by Bhpians who were back in their childhood days.

Once we came out reluctantly, it was time to dry and change and shift into party mode.

"Thailavar" & "Big Boss" : well named!
