Skywatch Friday..... So many shades of blue!

We were on the ramparts of the Dansborg Fort at Tarangambadi, when Samhith excitedly pointed out the clouds looming low over the sea. "Amma, look at how many shades of blue there are!" he exclaimed......


Tarangambadi in Tamilnadu is where the Dutch first landed in India, and this little town was once a Dutch colony. Today, it is a sleepy hamlet, with the restored fort the biggest attraction, and the sea a constant reminder of nature's vagaries. The Tsunami of 2004 washed part of it away, and the scars remain, making the sea not very safe for bathing or swimming. It rained through the two days we spent there, and we enjoyed the experience of just sitting, listening to the pitter patter of the raindrops, and the roar of the waves... no wonder the name of the town, in Tamil means "Land of the singing waves"

I am posting this as part of Skywatch Friday... Lots more pics and stories coming up about Tarangambadi soon!

  1. "Land of the Singing Waves" what a beautiful name for a beautiful place. I would love to sit and hear the waves and feel the fresh air blowing through my hair and enjoy the warmth of the sun on my back. You posted an excellent image this week.
