Working from Tiru

This week I will be working on some projects from Tiruvannamalai. I have actually taken a few days off from my full-time work in Chennai to have time to recharge my batteries at home. For the record, last Friday was my 51st birthday and my husband and I went to Mahabalipuram, about a two hour drive from Tiru. It was nice to sit by the ocean, watch the fisherman far out on the horizon, and splash around in the ocean that had a surprisingly strong undertow.

We actually stayed at the Ideal Beach Resort, which was a huge treat since we tend to stay close to home unless we head overseas to visit family. It's a bit pricey so I consider it a romantic place for a special occasion. The food was good, the service was wonderful and the staff even surprised me with my own pink and white birthday cake  and sang 'Happy Birthday.'

The resort is about an hour's drive south of Chenna, so it's a good place to get a break from the constant activity in Chennai if you work or live there. Here's the link to the resort: Ideal Beach Resort
