There wasn’t enough time to explore Surathkal Beach because we had to save some time to visit the more famous Panambur Beach which is a short drive away.

The Panambur Beach was a picture in contrast to the Surathkal Beach. It was crowded and noisy with almost all the space on the shores taken up by visitors and businesses of all sorts.

The ship of the desert was the cynosure of all attention. It was funny seeing him on a beach though, that too amidst the hullabaloo. His owners seemed to be lost in a conversation.

Amidst all the noise, one dog seemed to be enjoying a sand bath.

A man was offering rides on a horse cart and was desperately scouting for customers.

Motor boats were a big draw with lots of adventure-seekers heading for them.

I have for long been nursing dreams of taking pictures of the sun setting on a beach and was hoping to fulfil it that day. Alas! That was not to be. The clouds spoilt my party :( . Mercifully, I managed to take some pictures of sunny boy long before he sank into the sea.

Once dusk fell on the shore it was time to move. Someday, I wish to return here, spend more time and take better pictures.
