Goa 11.07.13 Vagator beach and Chapora fishing village

We had to get food and a few household goodies so John helped us explore the delights of a local supermarket poor guy had to translate and describe every other item for me – hopefully he won’t get too fed up with my incessant questions! Afterwards we went for lunch at Hindu restaurant, i had ‘fish thali’ (fish curry); the veg or fish thali seems to be the standard basic meal here, the curry has an unusual bitter taste to it, which is possibly the type of limes they use but it was nice.

Then John took us on a mini tour to Vagator beach (below), the picture doesn’t do the experience justice, for a start the temperature was 27 celsius and even though it looks really windy there was only a light breeze, the sea was so rough i could feel the sound of the roaring waves in my chest, the whole scene was incredibly intense and within about a minute of taking this pic those formidable clouds burst open as they tend to do every 2 or 3 hours – it was just a stunning moment.

We carried on to a small fishing village, called Chapora, which is on a river mouth, just a 5 minute drive from Vagator beah. All the bigger fishing boats are all anchored because of fishing restrictions during the monsoon.
