Short trip around Pune

We made a short trip last Sunday to the Lohgadh Boat Club. Nice place for 3-4 hour visit.

IMO the boating's a bit on the expensive side - we paid 1400 for a ride on the speed boat. No peddle boats available (my favorite kind). There's a restaurant providing a fantastic view of the sunset. The snacks we were served was pretty good, onion bhaji & omelette. There's also a random collection of animals (peacocks, ducks, cats, horse-ride) which would definitely excite the kids (me as well :). The 3 kids we had with us definitely enjoyed the visit.

The shortest road via Somatane Phata is not good, it took us hour and a half from Chinchwad. I recommend taking the road from Kamshet, which we took while coming back, and was much better.
Recommend stopping at Kinara Dhaba, Sunny Dhaba or Tony da Dhaba for dinner while returning via the old Mumbai-Pune Highway.
