These dunes are a main tourist attraction in Namibia. They tower to 1500 ft. above the surrounding landscape. Some people snowboard here. We spent at least three hours out in them. They were strange and profound. I had excellent meditation there and saw a lizard disappear before my eyes.
We ate lunch under an acacia and headed to the coast. I thought I wouldn't see the ocean until Kenya, so I was elated to find out we were going to the beach. I also wanted to get some sand and dust off.
