Garas Park - Pt. 1

Garas Park is a very basic camping site 20km north of Keetmanshoop in southern Namibia - I sometimes overnight here on my travels.

Set amongst weathered dolerite dykes and a Quiver Tree forest, it's a stunning spot. The owner has created these figurines from scrap and it makes the whole scene strangely surreal.


The Fleet Returns

On a trip to Cape Town in December I visited Hout Bay harbor when the local fishermen were returning with their Snoek catch.

The boats are immediately winched onto trailers and dragged out of the water.

The offloading begins.

Most of the catch is loaded onto waiting pickups, covered in ice and transported to local markets or storage facilities.

Some people buy the Snoek directly from the fishermen and take it home to clean themselves.

For the squeamish, a group of ladies is on hand to clean the fish for them - at a price of course
