During the conversation, Nomad learnt that these four friends were from Bengaluru and were on a long weekend drive trip to Haliyal - Dandeli - Castlerock - Dudhsagar. So it was agreed that Nomad and they would do a convoy drive back to Bengaluru.
after a while everyone consumed the biscuits and water brought by them and conversation continued about everything under the Sun.

The three people board the train by 5:40 PM. Train was jam packed with all the sunday visitors to Dudhsagar waterfalls.

it was a well spent day with Indian Railways, Mother Nature Dudhsagar waterfalls.
Nomad reconfirmed his beliefs that Nation moves on Railways.
I was happy to welcome Nomad back, Nomad even though was bit worried, how he will drive 500 plus KMs to home with sore legs and tired body. But he was very happy to see me again.
Nomad was fully wet from rains and sweat. so he changed into fresh clothes. One of the four frineds joined him in his car. It was decided that all five will stop somewhere near Dharwad-Hubli for dinner before the home run.
Last click prior to driving out of Castle Rock, more expploration can be done when Nomads re-visit this place some time in future.
I thank Mrs. Nomad for helping me post these pictures and story while Nomad is away.
Coming up 550KMs Home Run....
