The Ooty trip
Got together with two other couples for a road trip from Friday early morning to Sunday night. We left early in the morning on Independence day and after a lovely breakfast just out of Bangalore. We stopped at the Ranganthittu Bird Sanctuary (near Mysore) and caught glimpses of some lovely Night Herons and other exotic birds in the rains.
In the afternoon we took a longish break for lunch and rest at the Bandipur National Park and saw deers, monkeys, and elephants….but alas, no tigers !
We then reached Ooty by evening after passing through the dense madhumalai forests by evening.
Next day we travelled through Ooty and Conoor, especially Sims park and Dolphin Nose in the pouring rain…it was beautiful.
Next say, Sunday was actually a sunny day !We left Ooty early and stopped on the way at Mysore for lunch and landed at Bangalore, again in pouring rain at 9 pm !
