Date was fixed -- 28/12/08, that was last sunday. From morning itself, we started our work, since we'd a plan to take 'home-made' food with us. Our chief cook was Keerthi's father. We all were his assistants!
We started from here by around 12.30. We were around 50 in number(in a 35 seated bus!), including parents and children. Our first destination was Thumburmuzhi. Saw the garden, park and dam there. We couldn't afford to spend more than 30 minutes there and then we set out for our next terminal - Vazhachal.
Had really a good time there. The scene of streams flowing down in between the rocks looked so beautiful. At Vazhachal, we'd our food, tea and all. Played a lot in the water. We'd asked parents to take enough care of their children. But, atlast, we had to control parents too :)
On our way back, halted in Athirappilly. There was not-a-bad crowd in Athirappilly. Greenery there looked much more beautiful in the dazzling reddish golden rays of setting sun.. Waterfalls were glimmering in the sunshine. While having all our happiness and thrill at the peak, had our 'valedictory ceremony', ie, cutting cake, in prior to New year eve! Had chocolates and sweets. After having some preplanned-funs, games and lucky dip, we said good-byes to Athirappilly.
Reached back home by around 8.00 in the night. Trip was simply superb. We all had really a great time together.. Got appreciation from all for organizing such a nice small trip and were asked to think about our next tour, that too a long one!! Everyone enjoyed well.
Thank you all,
Wishing you a sweet colourful NEW YEAR,
Offerig you a piece of cake,
