A free day in Swakopmund!
A leisurely breakfast at 8.00am. The owner of the b&b runs a shuttle service the couple of kms into town. Jude and I caught the 9.00am shuttle.
We walked along the jetty and around to the lighthouse, stopping at the local markets. I didn’t buy anything at the markets because the sellers were so aggressive that you couldn’t stop to look at anything. We had no plan for the day – we wandered in and out of souvenir shops, had a lovely schnitzel lunch, went to the supermarket for more water and snacks for the next truck journey, and had an ice cream while walking back to the shuttle pick up point.
We were back at the b&b around 2.30pm and I spent the rest of the afternoon catching up on loading photos and writing the blog.
After six very long days on the road today was a much needed recovery day.
