Everyone who can afford it must vacation in Swakopmund at one time or another. The weather was cool, breezy and damp. The beach is beautiful. Our hotel served excellent German cuisine and pastry for breakfast and lunch. (Closed for dinner.) The service and staff were wonderful and eager to help. Even UCONN Barbie loved the view from our room. Across the street was the president’s summer house and a historic lighthouse. And between those two structures and the beach is a communications tower. How I ever noticed it is a miracle as it is disguised as a palm tree. Now that’s a first!
Our dinner at The Tug was perfect and we faced the crashing Atlantic at sunset. Raw oysters! Vodka and rum! A beautiful walk on the beach. Guinea fowl were everywhere and the hotel had a courtyard with parrots. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swakopmund
