Negative Tide at Half Moon Bay

Went to Half Moon Bay on Sunday thanks to utbt. She told us about the negative tide. We parked at Pillar Post and walked about a mile and half to the reefs. It was worth it. Lot of people with children. The young ones were having fun picking the starfishes, mussels, hermit crabs, etc. People were allowed to harvest some mussels upto 3-5 pounds by the ranger. We saw some guy catch this 2 foot long eel. Super cool! Though bad for the eel. The weather was perfect. Apparently this event occurs a couple of times a year. I was completely awed by the Sea Anemones and starfish.
Here are some pictures.

Aadhavan(ஆதவன்)

Filed under: movie — Tags: , , , , — yaadayaada @ 5:15 pm

Watched Aadhavan last night with husband and a friend. The friend and Surya were the motivators for hitting the theatre. It is a typical “leave your brain at home” kind of movie. Hope Surya chooses better in future. Coming back to the movie. The first half is good even though it takes a sudden turn from being a hard core action movie to a comedy. Clean and entertaining comedy. The second half is a drag.
The songs were misplaced and not needed. The costumes in the song were lesser said the better. I am pretty sure Surya is reusing Jyothika’s costumes. I pray that he start wearing man clothes.
