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

      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. 🙂

      Pretty amazing, right?
      The lone tree has also been braving the sea winds all these years.

    Wow! That is one long life!
    At times like this I strongly wish trees could speak.

      Yeah, pretty long life. What's interesting is that it has lived this long in that rocky area and fought all those strong ocean winds.
