I thought of you today!

  
“I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. 

I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. 

I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. 

All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. 

Your memory is a keepsake, from which I’ll never part. 

God has you in His arms, I have you in my heart. โค ” Miss you grandpa ๐Ÿ˜ž

I recently took a short summer vacation to visit my hometown which is near the coast. The last time I visited, was 6 months ago. So I really needed some family bonding time and a personal get away near the ocean. I had the most amazing time as usual. I was able to unwind and travel to new places nearby. For the first time, I dint go alone. My cousins accompanied me for my new ventures. We have been to the light house at the tallest hills in the city, few undiscovered beaches away from the city and for the 3rd time in my life to an estuary.


ย ย ย I must say estuaries are one the most beautiful places where ocean lovers must visit. We were literally deserted in the area which is kind of nice as I prefer the least populated beaches.


The estuary has provided habitat for many fish nurseries. Part of the bank was besieged by fishermen ๐Ÿ‘ณ๐Ÿฝhuts with their splendid canoes. A few of ’em boated down for fishing๐ŸŽฃ. The midsummer sunlight dispersed through the estuary made it resplendent, while I basked in it.๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ˜ŽI was able to envision few gliding fishes๐ŸŸ, lots of seagulls๐Ÿฆ, godwits, eagles and herons. I rode on a canoe ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿผ from the bank to the sea. We also took a closer look by having a long walk by the bay๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿš, listening to the waves. I missed diving though. One of the best nature therapies I had in a long time. We did trekking in some parts.


Also visiting the light house at the Dolphin hills was exhilarant. I was born in this city but we have never been to this place, so I guess it was a long overdue. Viewing most of the ocean (Bay of Bengal), the ship harbor, the city, the hills๐ŸŒ„,the trees๐ŸŒด, the azure sky and the sunset ๐ŸŒ…was eye-popping. I was enthralled by what nature had to offer. Vizag is still recovering after cyclone hudhud.

I visited my kith and kin after a long time. Our natter lasted with joy and laughter. We reminisced our childhood and our lost grandparents. Not to forget, my favorite food mom prepared for me everyday, the petty fights and laughter I shared with my sister ๐Ÿ‘ญ& parents๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ง, watching our favorite television together was a convivial atmosphere. Time has shortened everyday, I dint realize 2 weeks were done in a blink. ๐Ÿ˜ž Oh! well career calls but these memories are preserved. I’m grateful to God for this vacation. ๐Ÿ˜‡

Happy Place ๐ŸŒŒ

    

What is your happy place? ๐Ÿ˜Š If anyone asks you that question what comes to your mind? Just having this thought gives me a good feeling โค๏ธ. There is peace within. My happy place is the one at “dahican beach”. When I visited the place alone, I was fortunate enough to blend in with some Europeans who came for a visit as well as the amazingly hospitable locals. There was the beach, the starlit sky, the guitar one of the locals played and the bonafire. Some folks danced. I remember walking to the farther end of the beach listening to music watching the starlit sky. I fell asleep listening to the waves. The whole experience is idyllic. My happy place is this stupendous reality that looks like a prodigious fantasy.
