August 30-Sept 5
Had a great day today, met two guys from South Africa last night who were staying in our backpackers, Adam joined them for a whiskey and we got chatting. They were really good guys who kindly invited us to join them today to go dune boarding and quad biking in Nambi desert.
The dunes were amazing, I have never seen such a big desert and we only saw 1 tiny section, the dunes carried on as far as the eye could see. Then on the other side there was the ocean. The drive there was surreal with huge dunes on side and the ocean on the other.
First we waxed our board to help give us more speed (I was not sure I needed to go any faster), we had our quick lesson from Yan, then away we went. The walk to the top was hard work but the ride down was worth it.
Being in the middle of the dunes was beautiful, sitting there with no-one else in sight, with an amazing view, not a sound to be heard (apart from Adam screaming like a girl as he went down the dune) what
else can I say look at the pictures
Next was quad biking in the dunes. I was a little nervous, complete opposite to the testosterone filled boys behind me. After trying it by myself for a little while I then hopped on the back with the instructor so we could do some more exciting riding. It was awesome! I could look behind and see the boys all trying to go that little bit faster or higher, luckily everyone finished in one piece!
Then to end the day, we had a drink and some food in Walvis Bay in a raft on stilts in the Ocean, so it was Jeagermister watching the sunset. What a great day, beautiful place to be, fun activities and great company!
The car should arrive tommorrow, fingers crossed! If not it will be Monday.
The car is here, but it cannot dock until Sunday so we pick the car up on Monday. Staying in Walvis Bay for the next few nights while we wait.
