This place is about 35 km from Bangalore, on the route to Mysore. The idea was to chill out in the pool, play cricket, badminton, table tennis, squash and whatever tickled our fancy. 18 of us turned up, including three spouses and one cousin. (Came to know later that the cousin was actually the CFO of a company, which probably explained why he brought along the Economic Times for the trip and didn't play anything apart from Scrabble)
The bus drive was irritatingly slow and ardous both ways, mainly because the bus seemed to have just two gears - the first and second. It refused to switch to higher gears and simply didn't acknowledge that it could move in reverse. It took a lot of coaxing from the driver and the navigator before it agreed to chug its way up the road to Eagleton.
Once there, we started on cricket and then moved to the pool. Cricket was good fun, the match ended in a tie between the two teams we had formed. Pool-time involved walking on the pool floor, throwing a ball around and splashing water on everyone else. Sindha spent a bit of time throwing a frisbee and then switched to scrabble
Lunch was pretty good, which forced us to take a small nap afterwards. There was a tree strategically located so that its shade spread on the grass, giving us enough room to lie down and sleep. Played a bit of frisbee after that followed by a short round of badminton, on Sindha's insistence.
We were dead tired by the time we reached home. But the day was fun.
