“Who forces time is pushed back by time; who yields to time finds time on his side” ~ The Talmud

Early morning last Saturday my wife and I drove off to spend time with nature’s bounty. What a fantastic feeling to just shut down the routine week-end activities and break out – for an appointment with nature. Our destination was a friend’s farm I’d rather call it an eco-park 25 Km away from the hustle-bustle and pollution of the city. The view of the Khadakwasla Lake is beautiful and the farm has quite a few exotic plants. I’d love to share a few pictures.

The weather was just fine with a light drizzle and we relaxed under a  large covered sit-out enjoying the beautiful view of the lake. Yes we did some light reading – no laptops no music. You have great view of the Sahyadri Mountain range with the famous Sinhagad Fort (The Lion Fort) in the middle. It is situated on a hill rising 800 metres above the country side. The fort has been the site of many important battles dating back to the great warrior king Shivaji. In the picture you can see the fort engulfed by a necklace of clouds.

We enjoyed a light lunch (packed) and after resting a bit got back home – fully relaxed.

Cheers!
