When I came from the North a few weeks ago I camped-over at Solitaire, an outpost on the edge of the Namib Desert.
The next morning I was up before Sunrise and took a route through the Nauklauft Mountains.
I was heading for Büllsport, a Guest Farm on the eastern edge of the mountains - the 55km journey took ages because I kept stopping to take photos in the cloudy morning light.
I ordered a much-needed coffee and then walked around to view the reason I was here:
These long flat rocks occur somewhere on the farm and the owners have used them to construct very attractive walls, or fences. I'd seen them before but I wanted to take another look.
Some of the rocks are over 2 meters tall and I would love to get my hands on a few - to build a Stonehenge type rock circle on my lawn - but, I'd been told on a previous visit, a few years ago, that there were none available for sale.
While drinking my second cup of coffee I was chatting with the owner and hopefully asked her if she had more of the rocks and, any for sale - to my delight she said yes, she had a small stockpile of them right there.
... I grabbed my tape-measure and bought two on the spot.
From now on I'll be taking that route every time I head north.

After I'd left Büllsport I saw quite a few of these rocks standing on farms I passed so I guess they must be abundant in the area.
I'll tell you what, if I had a few thousand Bucks in small change, I'd hire a truck, cart a few loads of the Rock to my home in the north and start building another Dwelling with them ... after completing the Stone-Circle of course ...
