See the Sea

See the sea through my eyes. Feel my experience through my words.

Introduction:   Malpe  a small town in South Karnataka is renowned for beach, fishery. Has a small Port. Forms a part of the enchanting konkan coast, which I did mention in my "Gokarn Visit" post too.  St.Mary's Island that stands few kilometres away from the shores of malpe is a heavenly place. About 20-30 minutes by ship[passenger trips twice a day] from the shore. Each visit to the island lured us for more. Never to cease natural beauty that attracts a  decent tourist crowd.

Regular city buses carrying local and outside passengers is a common scene. A conductor is seen dangling at the bus-door,  calling out for passengers, by whistling loudest, screaming at his highest vocals and constantly beating the sides of the bus as if it were his drum for the day.

Zoomed in view-St.Mary's Island from Malpe Shore.

Silhouette of little figure
Ecstatic rush, splashing waves, a happy run
Teeny weeny gal greets waves with  fun.

Waves- Malpe Shore
Roaring waves hands clasped with the cloud
A rhythm they make as they sing aloud
Waving at every human eye pointing at them

Beckoning you with its ultimate charm

Recent developments in the Udupi district did throw Malpe in the limelight with its new traveller's Bungalow. One lasted for more than a decade in its ruined state with some doors and windows in its vestiges. As children, during our visits we had named it "bhooth bangla". Parking lots more organised now. Also the eat out stalls where fresh "fish fry" is served too!

P.S:- If you happen to visit don't forget the fish fry. Vegetarians you have the "Churmuri" that is puffed rice fully spiced with scrumptious spices, onions,tomatoes,coconut oil garnished with coriander leaves]
