We spent a day on a houseboat cruising Vembanad Lake and docking alongside a backwater canal for a lovely night. We were the only guests on a houseboat that had three staff on board - skipper, cook and assistant. We were served a lovely fish lunch, had time to snooze in the afternoon while cruising the lake. Later in the afternoon we took a smaller launch to explore the backwater canals, full of abundant flora, a variety of birds and the local inhabitants going about their life along the banks of the canals. We stopped to buy shrimps and beer for dinner on board our private houseboat and when the moon rose and the sounds along the banks of the lake made us sleepy we retired to our private stateroom with huge bed and private bathroom. Morning comes early on the water and the sunrise, the birds flying and diving for fish alongside our boat made for perfect companions to breakfast on the water. We reluctantly said by to our boat crew after a wonderful experience on a houseboat on the backwaters of Kerala.
