dear friends, thank you so very much for bearing with me as this travelogue continues. i promise to try to keep these posts short and share what may be of interest, as well as to keep documenting our trip here in this space.
would you like to see something that came home with me? this hand stitched giraffe and ellie fairly jumped in my bag. the elephant tusk is made with a porcupine quill. LOVE. :)
here is a well worn old friend, our trusty map. i was the navigator and know this paper very well now. we started our trip at the two dots in the middle right (windhoek), the dunes were at the lowest dot (sossusvlei) and now we are headed to the coast, walvis bay, swakopmund, cape cross and the skeleton coast . we're hoping to see white pelicans, migrating flamingos, shipwrecks and cape fur seals. but to see anything is a treat.
we noticed first the huge amount of sand, and then random signs here and there, this one says fog.
sharing the road. driving in namibia is mostly a solitary experience, you might be alone for miles. every so often passing another vehicle, or a home, small round huts. and a few times we saw something that looked like this:
thank you for coming along, lori xxx
