Summer is here, and Mumbai is sweltering hot! This is not really the best time to travel, for its hot everywhere, but this does not seem to stop us from travelling!! I just returned from two short trips - a week long trip to Gujarat, where we visited Somnath, Junagadh and Gir Wildlife Sanctuary, and another shorter break to Alibag. There is lots I have to write about, and hopefully I shall get started soon.... Meanwhile, another good news is that I have finally upgraded my camera!!! I am now the proud owner of Nikon P510!! Those of you who are wondering why I didn't finally switch to a DSLR, the reason is that I decided that Samhith was quite enough to handle for now! I didn't want the additional burden of lenses and stuff that had to be cared for at all times! The P510 seemed to be the perfect compromise, and I set off for Gir with the new camera in hand..... I have been agonising over which images to post first, and have finally decided that these sunset scenes over the Mumbai skyline would be the best place to begin, for they marked the beginning of a wonderful trip!
I clicked these images from the Catamaran which took us to Alibag from the Gateway of India... We would have liked to go in the morning, but Samhith's school ensured that we could not leave before evening. We caught the last boat to Alibag, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise, for we caught the sun set over the concrete skyline of Mumbai...

Alibag is the perfect getaway from Mumbai. It is accessible by road as well as by sea, and though many prefer to drive over, I always prefer taking the boat, for I get to see such wonderful sights along the way!!
