Day 2:

Leisurely day! Looked through the bookshelf and selected a couple of books. Started a re-read of The Da Vinci Code , while Ammu was happy playing with D’s daughters who had come visiting πŸ™‚

In the evening, we all went to the Mysore Palace!! The magnificent sight amazes us each time we visit.

One of the gates..
Balloons πŸ™‚
The Dasara Jumbos!
Gate.. from inside the premises..
One of the temples in the premises
A part of the palace.. up close..
Another portion..

During Dasara, almost every evening is a cultural evening at the palace, with dance or music programmes by renowned artistes.

We strolled around for a bit. Then,Β sitting on the lawns,we munched popcorn and churmuri. Later the kids played for sometime while I sat there and clicked away πŸ™‚

Shimmering gold πŸ™‚
With the Chamundi hills’ ‘Welcome’ in the backdrop
Blueee…
The main entrance.. as seen from inside the premises..
Petunias..
All set for the D day. Seating arrangements for dignitaries for watching the Dasara procession that starts from here..
Just like that πŸ™‚
The illuminated circle.. on exiting the palace..

Exhausted but full of excitement, we left for home. And, the icing, literally, was an ice cream at the end of it all !! πŸ™‚

Hope you all liked the pics πŸ™‚

I’m sure most everyone is busy with preparations for Diwali! Have a fun n happy weekend folks!!
