Me: What is the one place you want to go to when you come to Chennai/Madras?
Cousin [over the phone from Delhi]- The Beach
I rest my case!! 
When she was here, one morning we all rose early[5am] and drove down to the beach, not just any beach, but The Marina Beach…  Spent about 2hours walking along the shore, while some played in the water a bit before joining us… What a fun morning that was! 
Did you know that the Marina beach is the longest in the country?
yes, it stretches for over 14kms…. and one has easy access to the
water as well, unlike in other places where you cannot get your feet wet

These were fishing boats resting before the trip into the ocean. There were a few fishermen sorting out the fishing nets nearby. They had done one round of fishing early in the morning [3-4am] and will go again in a while… What a life!!
