Christmas 2014 Day 4 of 11, HVK AIM 2014 Boating and Convoy

This was the day to be spent with fellow HVKians. The day started with a good breakfast in the resort.
7:30 AM The next on the plan is boating in Godavari Delta. Following is the maps of our boat ride. We went around the river and docked at a small island.

We spent some time in the island and utilised the photo opportunities that were presented to us. There is serious amount of sand mining going on near our embarkation point. There are tens of tractors which continuously load sand which is brought from the river on the shore.

Back to the resort
10:05 AM We start back to the resort.
10:40 AM We are back at the resort. The plan is to get ready, have lunch and then it is time for the Convoy drive.
12:45 PM We are in our cars and at our place in the Convoy. Following is the map that we followed for the convoy drive.

Driving in a convoy is more complicated than what it looks like. It is extremely important for each car to pay attention to car ahead and behind us. Needless to say that we get lost few times and eventually regroup and  are on track to our destination. It is an interesting experience driving lost through villages where you have never been and don't understand language. Google maps was useless because roads here are not mapped at all.
2:50 PM We reach at the final destination in our convoy drive. The destination is Perupalem Beach. The place is very interesting. The beach has pretty much no people except us and comparatively clean.  Following is the complete timelapse video of the convoy drive.

5:20 PM We start back to our resort. This time we don't make any mistake except bothering some people who were not able to overtake us because of a really long convoy. Here is a brand new Honda City that just got bored of driving behind the convoy and then overtook the whole convoy in one dangerous and agressive move.

7:10 PM We are back in resort. Time to dinner and bid goodbye to fellow roadies.
