Meeting our car again on Walvis Bay lagoon
Tents and extra tank have been fitted well by Namib Off Road center, but my fridg doesn't work any more. The fuse is burned. But even with a new one, the compressor still doesn't engage and the led still flashes red. It's a Waeco, not distributed there, so no spare parts. And we have to go tomorrow. No choice, I have to buy a new one and leave the old one there when I think it could be fixed quite easily. A pity!
Head up to Pelican Point.
A quite odd «ranger» (was he one?) told us to follow the gravel track up to the see and turn right up to the lighthouse. So do I. Few tracks on the beach, I follow them. But we will not go far in this sand full of water. So we get stuck on the beach. Thanks to the three diff locks, I only had to deflate the tyres to 1 bar to get out of there.
We find the good track (very sandy but doable with a good 4x4) and here is the goal!
It stinks, but my stuffed up nose helps me…
When we approach, they run to the see, but babies stay…
One could believe they're dead.
But they are not. They wake up eventually.
Hmmm… Not all of them.
Today we fulfil an old promise to Gauvain: quad biking in the dunes!
A pity that the sky stay cloudy and the weather quite cold. Gloves would have been useful!
Thursday, we leave Walvis Bay.
Who need large tyres for his 4x4?
A few green, but the desert is still… a desert, even in April.
The afternoon with the flu…:-(
Thanks Walter for your offer that really helped me to be operational again the day after!
Hard life in Africa…
Walter and family's small estate… What a nice place!
Storms will follow us the whole day.
Picnic break. Weather is not so good.
On the road again.
A nice walk at Koiimasis farm that will end under the rain.
First camp with our new tents.
Dinner between the drops, and go to bed!
It's pouring with rain during the night. A good test for our tents: good news, they are watertight!
Koiimasis is 20 km from the D707.
We are at the entrance of the ghost town of Kolmanskop at 12:20 when it closes at 13:00. Too late. A pity, but this is holiday, I didn't want to move everybody too fast this morning. I should have…
Shark Island, Lüderitz.
Nothing again red eyes on this camera?
Garub feral horses. Land must be enough for them…
8°C only at Klein Aus Vista tonight. It didn't take much time to get under the duvets!
