During my stay in Namibia I frequently took trips to the coast, typically for rest and relaxation. If you have been following this site you certainly know how often this has been. I aimed for the sea every two or three months. It is hard to imagine that I will not soon be heading down that lonely road across the desert to a place that has become so special to me.

Here is my last set of coastal pictures for 2008 and possibly some time.

The famous Raft restaurant in Walvis Bay.

Enjoying the calm waters yet extreme winds of Walvis Bay.

Fishing vessels spotted while out at sea on a boat trip.


This boat has been completely taken over by birds. It was eerily quiet as we approached. Very Hitchcock’esque.

An exceptionally bitey seal boards the boat!!!

Walvis Bay oil exploration is presumably starting sometime soon.

The little boat at left tows the rig at 5km an hour.

The South Western African Coast will always hold a very special place in my heart.
