We do like to be beside the seaside

Day 94… Wednesday 5th July

Drove to Swakopmund on the coast a mere 1 hour 40 minute drive time.  Lovely smooth tared road. Very little traffic except the occasional lorry.  Our chosen campsite was fully booked due to the South African holiday season but they had a self-catering chalet available so we decided to treat ourselves to some luxury for 2 nights.  Walked along the coast and pier and stopped for sundowners with views of the beach and town.  Dinner tonight was steak and boerewors on the indoor open fireplace. 

Day 95… Thursday 6th July

Walked into town and spent the morning in the museum.  Swakopmund has a fascinating colonial history with German settlers arriving in 1892.  The town is geared up for tourists with holiday accommodation, restaurants and shops.  A huge amount of sand was blowing in from the desert and walking around was difficult as it stings the eyes.  Found an indoor meat market with springbok, Kudu and pig trotters for sale to name a few.  The sunset tonight was incredible.
