We\’ve motored all but 3 hours of the trip and expect that if a sail is to be had, it will be this afternoon. The water is still cold, night time is overcast to foggy. We\’re just inside the main north/south shipping lane, so we still get about 10 vessels a day in our general neighborhood. We currently see two vessels, one is stationary about 20 miles off the coast and the other about 40 miles off the coast which are \”dredging\”. We suspect for diamonds! From the Orange River, the way up to around Walvis Bay there are shore based diamond mines. The Namibian Desert on the coast is the oldest desert on earth and it\’s strikingly beautiful. This is one of the reasons we\’ve decided to make the two stops in Namibia. The public cannot travel to areas where the mines are. No tours here! Just the red/pink sand dunes. MORE on those after we\’ve been there in the blog. I\’ll catch the blog up shortly. KIT, Scott and Off Watch Nik, motoring along the Namibian Coast…..
