Did you drive towards Avalanchi and Emerald lakes? Also did you pass by the Good Sheperd Residential school?
The panorama there is very nice.

I had been to Ooty lake last year. Did not see many people there. But the ride was pleasant. I did not notice this train though. Where was this area with respect to the entrance gate?

TB. It was on right hand side of the boat house entrance. To be precise, it was near the exit point of the boat house.

@ampere. No, we didn't visit those lakes and school.

Day 12 Ooty sigt-seeing pics continuing..

Children's park and Views onway to Conoor.

Thanks laluks. Will meet sure whenever we revisit BLR. Yes, she enjoyed thoroughly whenever we were in open, I mean out of vehicle.

Thanks ampere and Gansan. Yes, am finding it difficult to be on the same pace with the story due to workload, but shall pick-up soon. Getting home system rectified in couple of days. Then things will move fast.

Till then more pics..

Day 12 Ooty sigt-seeing pics continuing..
Views at Lamb's Rock View point

PS: Last but 1&2 pics are from children's park and Onway to Conoor, respectively. Got posted by mistake. Sorry.

Nice pictures. I stopped at the very same point for Lamb's rock when I went to Ooty a couple of months back . More mist/fog this time though.

Junior reports that the Pamban bridge video failed to upload to Youtube. May be it is too long and needs to be edited. I will attend to it during the weekend.

The restriction is for time. No video which is more than 10 minutes long. I fell into that trap last week.
