Beat the heat!!

May 1st is Maharashtra day, labor day, a HOLIDAY :) & a dry day :( (which I discovered at EOD). In scorching sun, determined to beat the heat we decided to burn some rubber and drive to The Orchard resort. Its around 35 kms from Pune near the mini Balaji Temple in Narayanpur.

Thankfully the raid gods were in mood and we had chance to see some black clouds and it showered as well at some places in Pune. So, the temperature was not at its max now. We drove down the beautiful highway on Pune-Satara road and its was a treat to drive.

I am sure the heat took a toll on our senses cause the first thing we were doing there was play in the children's park.. poor kids must have got scared as they left as soon as we entered ;)

Soon after this we changed and were enjoying the water .. It was really pleasing to be in mildly cold water on that sunny day. Unfortunately there were some broken tiles in the pool and my brother had cut his fingers with it. After giving him first aid and camera (as he was out of water & had nothing to do) I returned to water (sure after making sure the tiles were covered by mat). We played in water until we were told that its lunch time and we should continue post lunch so we followed. Although, Lunch was not very great but I enjoyed the ice creams. Then we decided against going in water and played table tennis, badminton, pool and it was already time to leave.

Following our original plan we went to Balaji mandir which is just 10 minutes drive from there & a treat to watch in the evening with the lights ON. We then returned to Pune by 9pm. It was an amazing trip as we enjoyed a lot and tired ourselves playing whole day.

Now all we (me & my cousin) wanted was couple of chilled beers and food before going to sleep and it was then we found out it was a dry day as well. We were too tired to try & find beer on dry day and I had 2 pints in my fridge. So we settled on that and concluded the day.

I genuinely thank all the people who chose to come rather than informing about their last minute cancellations ;)

So, Cheers to Orchard!!
