Continuation of my previous post Monsoon drive 2014

Day 2 ( July 12, 2014)

Woke up little late in the morning after a tiresome ride yesterday. It continued raining. Walked out of the room and entered the cafeteria for coffee and breakfast.

Castlerock is a village in the Uttara Kannada (North Kanara) district Indian state of Karnataka, The town is located in the Western Ghats on the state’s border with Goa at an elevation of 621 m (2,040 ft).
