Skeleton Coast

Fisherman’s world here on the Namibian coast. Fishing rods everywhere.

They say there are over 1000 wrecks on this coast, rough seas and few harbours. But the coast isn’t named after the shipwrecks, there was so much whale hunting here that the beaches were strewn with whale bones. What a pity, they suspect that whales can live a 1000 years, and that the giants who were caught a few centuries ago were ancient. That also being the reason that there are no more of them now..
