Goa again: Palolem

We decided to spend November in Goa and to revisit beautiful Palolem.

The idea was to get a lot of work done in tropical surroundings, with a swim in the ocean every now and then.

That worked out quite nicely most of the time, though finding a (more or less) reliable internet connection was harder than expected.

We also met up with Abhideep (here in pirate look),

went on another dolphin tour

checked out spices at the market

and spied on a fancy Indian wedding at a nearby beach resort.

Our lovely home. We live between Manly Cove (in the front of the picture, facing Sydney Harbour) and Manly Beach on the Pacific (in the back).

View of Manly Beach and neighbouring beaches from Sydney Harbour National Park.

Manly Cove

Little Penguin. There are a few penguin couples who spend their nights under the boardwalk of Manly Wharf.

A lot more numerous than the penguins: the beautiful and noisy rainbow lorikeets.

A short walk from Manly Cove along the Corso...

takes you to Manly Beach.

Beach fun with Annie and Steph

and Ruben.

Manly Beach is great for boogie boarding... (with Vincent)

...surfing... (Richard)

and celebrating Christmas (at the Manly Pub Crawl).
