The next day morning was no different. It was gloomy and raining. In the news there were reports of massive floods in northern Karnataka. By noon it stopped raining for a while and i decided to venture out and enjoy my wet vacation. After a hearty meal of fish curry,rice and clamps i headed to the beaches. The closest ones were Anjuna, Vagator and Chapora. One of the locals at the tea stall told me that there’s a fort near Chapora. By the time i reached the fort, it started raining again :(.

Vagator Beach

I was determined not to let the rains ruin my vacation. So instead of running for cover, i went to the fort and sat there on one of the walls facing the sea. It kept on raining but by now i was immune to it. Finally around 4:30PM it stopped raining and a couple of White Bellied sea eagles came out. It was as if someone had finally run out of water!!!. I made a quick trip to Chapora, Vagator, Anjuna, Candolim, Calangute and Baga beaches. Had dinner in Baga with lots of Kings beer. For 20bucks a pint you just cant beat King’s beer.  Finally a DRY GOA.
