Our day of rest had come. We lay in intil nearly eleven before wandering out for breakfast and a swim. At the southern end of Goa, Palolem Beach is slightly less busy the the main beaches further up the coast. Concrete buildings have been banned on the waterfront and now a line of wooden buildings offer the good life to anyone with a few rupees to spend.
We swam in the warm Indian Ocean. We ate calamari, pakoras, humous and naan. And, we tasted our first ever Indian wines. A sav blanc and a sav/chenin blanc blend. Neither were at all bad. Rich joined us for a sunset glass and Ollie and Squirrel disappeared having found a lorry to transport them and their tuk-tuks 800kms up the coast!
Our four poster bed felt like a nest. It was lights out as soon as our heads hit the pillow.
