    Damn, that was a tough night!

    Everybody visiting the coast should drive up to see the seals at Cape Cross. At it's most there is more than 200000 seals in the area! The smell is terrible, and it is hard to describe how bad it really is, but I'll try. Fill a bathtub with urine, close the door and keep the temperature at 35 degrees celsius for a month, then run in and take a deep breath! Then vomit.
    There is actually a pretty new restaurant close to the beach, and the food is quite good.

    The Cape Cross Seal reserve is rather unexpected. A fur seal colony in Africa was a surprise. There are thousands of seals here. You can get quite close.
