Good morning.....
In Swakopmund one isn't always guaranteed a sunset because of the fog banks that sometimes roll in earlier than expected. This evening we were fortunate and although you can see the fog we did get a very pretty sunset overlooking the pier which was built in 1911. There is a very nice restaurant at the end of the pier.

Have a nice dayGrinGrin
