As we thought, we woke up to a spectacular view…glad we decided to spend the night here.
Due to the fact, that we could fill all our water containers, from the tap we found along the way…we did not need to hurry…an extra day to explore and enjoy!
We spend hours in the water pools, looking for that something that makes you stop and admire…it was endless…a photographer’s dream!
Along the coastline, we have found quite a few different types of flora growing in many different ways…This one was quite unique.
For many years erosion took place and shaped this solid rock into a round pool, filled with smaller pebbles. High tides come and go…
Different forms of sea life, transformed this pool to a cozy little home. Being so shallow, the water warmed up in the sun, to a pleasant temperature.
This fellow was one of a few. I liked this one in particular because of his attitude. The closer we came, the higher he lifted his head, trying to dominate…
We were ready for the last stretch… another +/- 40km to the Groen River.
This reminded me of a whale, reaching out of the water. We stopped for a few minutes, stretched our legs and saw this incredible rock formation.
Normally you find the shipwreck without an engine, but this time… The engine lost it’s ship!
To explain this beauty is impossible! Not even a photo like this can bring you close to understanding what we’ve seen and experienced…
With such an unbelievable sight…fresh in my mind…we continued our yourney.
When we saw the lighthouse, we new that the Groen River must be close…we have traveled quite a distance, mainly through soft sand.
This area was nicely secured, and my plan of having a closer look at the lighthouse, was impossible..
We were still travelling in mining area – all property of De Beers.
We have found these notice boards to be very informative and looked at the coast with a different insight.
I could not help seeing a contrast in these two pathways, one made by nature…and one by mankind.
From here we traveled towards the Spoeg river , where Hondeklipbaai was our first town we visited on the DIAMOND COAST….
