Monsoons don't seem to be easing off!

View from my back balcony, above
Its been a wet, wet, September till now. The rains don't seem to be stopping anytime soon.
As I write, its pouring outside.

The only thing interesting is this bulbul, (picture below) which has made a its nest on my clothes drying lines, on my back balcony.
Both mother and father bulbuls' take turns sitting in the nest.
Expect the chicks - baby bulbuls soon! maybe just in time for the kayaking season?

Just a month left of the monsoons!

Hi everyone!

Its been a long time - 3 months since I last posted here.

We, at Goa Kayaking, are just itiching to get our feet wet and start kayaking in the glorious sunshine expected from next month.

Its been a wet season now for sometime - though Goa Kayaking members did venture out in the Zuari river - twice last month.

Had to turn back once due to high wind speed and heavy rain.

So do check the blog and keep in touch - we intend to start at the earliest.

Goa Kayaking has lots of surprises in store - 14 new routes in the Mandovi, 3 in the Zuari, 2 new passages thro' the mangroves in the Nerul river.

All this in addition to our regular 16 trips in the rivers and back waters of the state is what makes Goa Kayaking the best way to see and experience Goa!
