Kings Beach, Tahoe

A wide sandy beach, cool water lightly lapping at our feet, bright, warm sun, and a holiday weekend.  Sounds like the perfect beach day.  What surprised me was that the beach was not on the Atlantic ocean, Pacific Ocean, or even the Caribbean.  It was on the north shores of Lake Tahoe, a beautiful lake…

Travel in a 100 Posts

As I was putting together posts from my most recent trip, I realized that I was about to hit my 100th post. I started this blog as a way to record a month long trip to India for my children when they get older. But now, 2+ years later, it’s turned into a therapeutic way…

Beach Day in Asbury Park

I unexpectedly found myself with a…

Marina Beach

On our last day in Chennai, we made a quick trip to Marina Beach. Marina Beach is the world’s second longest beach at 13km long. Its also an extremely wide beach, with an average width of 300m. The beach has a nice paved walkway at the top for joggers or those who are just interested…
