Travelled from Bhuj to the port town of Mandvi where huge wooden ships are built for Arab merchants and camels give rides on the beach.
We had a room at the Seaview Hotel and guess what?? That’s right. To see the sea you had to stand on a chair from the roof and use your imagination. HOWEVER it was a corner room with windows on both sides which looked right out over the river and to the huge ships being built. It was a very busy corner in town and we spent many hours just looking out of the window in both directions watching the world go by.From sunrise to sunset it was go, go, go.
Six donkeys every morning headed off around the corner and later returned loaded up with bags of sand.
Decorated camels, reminiscent of Pushkar, headed to the beach in the mornings and returned after sunset.
Buses loaded with Indian tourists emptied and filled hourly.
And of course mama dogs and their puppies were everywhere. Mia and I had great fun watching one mama dog with eleven pups. Poor old mama tried to get away from them for a bit of peace and quiet but they were persistent and kept following her not giving her a minute’s peace.
