  2. Nice. I saw a similar one in Gokarna. A coconut tree jutting from the rocks.

  3. 17-miles drive is beautiful! Lone cypress at sunset is one beautiful sight!

    • Yeah it is. We did the drive twice. I'm sure anybody who loves the sea (and seaside drives) will love the drive. I'm sure Lone Cypress looks great at sunset; must see that sometime. You have pics, Kusum? I'll come by and look for it. 🙂
