Row, row, row your boat, originally uploaded by anitabora.

We headed out to the river pretty early in the morning to beat the heat during our stay in Mangalore. In the early morning, caught these fishermen taking out their nets and casting them in the river.

This is the view of the river from the old fort, Sulthana Batthery. From there we headed north toward Kaup Beach, Udupi, St Mary’s Island, a village called Paladka and Moodbidri and back south to Ullal Beach for a beautiful sunset. My camera unfortunately failed on me towards the end of the day but I did manage a few pictures before that. Will put them up online shortly.

Meanwhile, hope to see some of you at the Bangalore Marathon and even more of you at the Blog Meet on Sunday.

  1. Anita, you will be there at the Marathon? Cheering? 🙂 Watch out for runner(walker/crawler!) #6603 in the celebration run.


  2. Technically they are not fishermen, but “sand collectors”. There are many middleman who buy the sand and they are sent for glass factories etc.

  3. wow, by all the description you have posted on your blog, it seems to me I should visit this place at least once. Nice picture. Reminds me of the cover of the book, “Hungry Tide” by Amitav Ghosh.
