This is an aerial view of Corbyn's Cove at Port Blair. It was named after famous Henry Fisher Corbyn. The scenic cove can be seen here as an innermost indentation of the sea into the island touching the beach. This is the nearest beach area located within Port Blair city but has a circular approach from Marina (the zig zag road can be seen next to seashore going to the Corbyn's Cove). Corbyn's Cove beach is a small arc of smooth and soft white sand supported by impressive veil of palms which is very safe zone for those who are interested to swim or dive into the clear waters of sea.The water is warm and the surf mild. Location: Latitude 11.3836 N, Longitude 92.4449 E

Refer: Henry Fisher Corbyn (1833-1903)

A cove is a circular or oval coastal inlet with a narrow entrance. Colloquially, the term can be used to describe a sheltered bay.

Corbyn's Cove is a serene and unspoiled soft sandy beach in Andaman near to Port Blair. This beach is set in picturesque backgrounds of lush green coconut palms and pleasant sea. There is a pristine tourism Complex, which offers all kinds of facilities for an enthusiastic traveler.

This is an ideal spot for sun basking and sea bathing. The main attractions in this beach are the inviting water sports activities. This beach and the water closed to the beach are perfect location for surfing, scuba diving and boating. Many pill boxes and bunkers established by Japanese add the attraction of the beach.

Seeing the waves from above give me many thoughts. I studied waves and q1uantum physics just for something to do a couple years...wave theories abound...and I enjoy the almost chaotic nature of them...as if we could ever put them together in a pattern or an equation~! HA!
Excellent lesson plan good sir!
