The day started heading north up the skeleton coast. The road was salt watered down with diesel and there wasn't too much sea fog so the views were nice. Still quite cool so jacket liners back in. A quick stop to photograph a ship wreck and then a refuel stop at Henties Bay. We then headed inland away from the Atlantic. The roads were quite good although it was getting hot again. Lunch in Uis was a pleasent change as we had missed out the last couple of days. Pete, Mick, Darren and I were very happy to have Irene back riding with us again. Rick and Jim swapped postions with us all day.
A final refuelling stop saw us on the sealed roads for 70 km until the turn off to Vingerklip. A bit of sand was fine and we arrived a bit after 4.00. A quick dip in the pool and a lager and then the climb up to our dinner location. The restaurant is on top of a 30 metre high mesa with awesome views of the the valleys around us. Check out the pics.
After dinner we watched some beasties come into a waterhole to drink while we had a rum with John and Valerie.
400 kms tomorrow with a sealed road option the whole way. Might be taking that I think!
Lots of animals about now.
