Waiting for the Ferry boat to fill-up with Pax, to go to Bet-Dwaraka

3rd September 2005: 6:45 am Checked out of Dwaraka Hotel and headed North to Bet-Dwaraka at the tip of peninsula. Reached at 7:30 am and waited for a boat to start for the island of Bet; but as enough pax load were not there, decided to drop out of that boat ride and started back south to go to Jamnagar. 


Left Porbandar at 10:30 am and continued north-west up the coastal road to Dwaraka. Arrived at 1:30 pm and checked into Hotel Gokul at Rs 250 for the non-AC room. In the evening did local sights in a autorickshaw.
