Images of Georgia: Batumi and the Black Sea

I was happy with my first and only visit to Batumi, the coastal city of Georgia,  in April of 2011.  Though the tour was just for a day and it was still cold, it was the first sunny day of the year and I joined the locals in celebrating the glory of spring.  It was also a realization of a long-time dream to reach the Black Sea — a moment which I greatly savoured  by simply sitting on the empty beach and staring at the dark blue waters of the sea very early in the morning just minutes after I arrived.  It was also historically significant since Batumi was undergoing a rapid tourism-driven facelift (see The Trump Tower and Other Rising Structures in Batumi”) and the place may look very different when I get back.

Below are some of the photos about Batumi and the Black Sea which I featured in a series of posts in March this year.
