Today’s journey was a long one. I departed from the hotel at 5 am and returned at 10:30 pm. We easily spent 14 hours on the road traveling to Trivandrum District and back. we witnessed many areas of rebuilding from a severe cyclone that hit this area in the summer of 2016.
On a journey this long there are frequent and welcomed breaks for tea or coffee. Fresh banana chips are also a favorite. Much laughter and conversation filled our day.
On the return back to the hotel we stopped for about an hour at Kovalam Beach in Trivandrum. This beach is on the west coast and the body of water we enjoyed was the Arabian Sea. Waves were rough but people were enjoying the waters. I rolled up my pant legs as much as I could and enjoyed the water for awhile. As fate would have it, I turned my head for a moment and was soon wearing drenched pants.
It was a blessed day. I was so thankful to enjoy God’s creation with my dear friends at the Arabian Sea.
