|Walking to the main road to catch a taxi who's late arriving. This is the lane where we live.|
|This is Carolyn bitching that the taxi is 40 minutes late and why doesn't Gopal call and harrass the driver.|
|We arrive at the Ooty Lake, ready for a boat ride. (Carolyn is now smiling.)|
|Everybody in these two boats knew each other, and they were having so much fun bumping their boats against each other.|
|Many improvements had taken place since we'd been there, apparently for the Ooty Flower Show. We ate on this new deck. It was really nice, right by the water.|
Then on to the Botanical Garden, which we love.
|The trees here are really wonderful. So many varieties and so large and mature. This may be the Monterey Cypress of all things.|
|This is a Monterey Cypress.|
|The sun was extremely hot that day, and this photo pretty much shows how we were feeling as we made our way back to the entrance.|
|On the way home, the driver pulled over at this view point.|
We had a truly wonderful day. We had been to the Botanical Garden and to the Boat House many times, but this time was particularly special.
