'Twas a full moon when we arrived in Grunau



Goggas and all



Meeting up with PS, Colleen and JT at Ais Ais



Wasn't aware that they had such nice indoor pools there



And then it was off to Useb via Canyon Roadhouse - plenty of storms all around us







But we made it in bright blue skies (pic refused to rotate)...



but within the hour...





After lunch however it cleared for a dust free journey to Useb campsite



The next morning JT & I were at the canyon view site to watch the moon set and the sun rise





Then onto Duiseb Castle and 'restaurant'.





The Naukluft on the way to Sosussvlei



Sosussvlei





Lynn at the vlei - "I thought this was a desert?"



Colleen  and her EyePods



The Boys set off to climb the dune...



...and make it to the top!



Fairy Circle meditation



And a beer at the Lodge to wash the sand down



After two nights camping it was off to Swakopmund via Walvis. Lots of full rivers.







Then out of the Naukluft and onto the plains - still followed by storms. We never drove though any but the roads were nice and damp and a dust free pleasure to drive







It was about here that Fips called to say he was leaving Swakopmund as he had been sitting in the rain for three days and that the salt road north was impassable - bye, bye Fips. Sorry we missed you and thanks for taking the bad weather with you.

Entering Walvis



Oysters and tequila at the Raft



The next morning we awoke to a blue sky'd Swakopmund and set off on the impassable salt road north to Messum via Cape Cross









Stone desert you say! Why is it green?







Our Messum Crater campsite - beautiful!



JT and PS sundowning...



The evening was chilly...



...and so was the next morning



JT fixing (almost) my fused window master switch



And then it was off to Palmwag to meet the rest of the group - but that's Part II.
