suratkal (ಸುರತ್ಕಲ್) railway station is very pretty.Stay : Hotel Maharaja International gave us a room for INR 1369 incl of taxes, post discount.
Clean Barebones AC Room.
There is a sadānanda veg hotel that we ought to have tried but we had food in some City Home Veg, which was not that great.
I could buy a spare cell phone charger and new slippers near by.
In the morning we walked to the beautiful suratkal beach. We saw new shells and snails. And birds!
We saw fisherman drag their boat in from the sea and sort out the catch. Travelling with son is always a new and rewarding experience.
We sat on a little stone bench and leaned back as we drank some majjigē.
There are frequent buses to udupi. (Rs. 43) and it is a short 45 km away.
Nice lunch at kediyoor. (Regular south Indian thālī).
