Andaman Adventures - The early bird catches the Sunrise !

Everything about the resort we stayed in at Havelock Island spoke of relaxation and chilling out. 

The resort was very green and very peaceful. The only sound was the gentle murmurings of the sea interspersed by the occasional canon like thud of the coconuts falling from the trees. 



The cottages were right next to the sea with hammocks and beach chairs strewn about. 



This is what the view from the chair looked like. 


The sun rises very early in tropical areas and at Havelock the day used to break as early as 4.45 am. 
Even through well drawn curtains, it was impossible to keep the sun out. I am not sure I wanted to ! I used to get up with the first streak of sunlight and make my way to the beach to see the sun come up.

It was very quiet at that time in the morning.The only sound  was that of the sea and the early morning wind whispering through the trees. 

It was just me and the sea and the trees and the sun rising over the horizon. It was indescribably beautiful and incredibly peaceful. 

I clicked a few pics while sitting at the beach .. 

At first the sky turned a pale pink ....



And then there it turned golden with a tinge of pink and  red at the edges. It looked beautiful, as if the gods above were in a playful mood and had decided to strew some colors on  a palette. 


Then the sun peeped out, fiery and golden .. as if giving us an indication of the hot day that lay ahead, in spite of the clouds. 




Finally it hung in the sky, like a great orb of fire ! 



The colors disappeared and the sky was just a bright gold. The sea was suddenly a play of light and shadow. I caught these fishermen going out to the sea. Perhaps
to catch our Dinner !
