Oil Drilling Rig at Skeleton Coast Namibia

When we reached the coast, we turned left into C34, and after about an hour we spotted a strange, rusted structure to the left of the road - an oil drilling rig, erected by hopeful entrepreneurs long before the National Park was actualyl proclaimed. Today, it provides a perfect nesting area for birds during the breeding season. When we came along, though, there were no birds to be seen anywhere. To us, it was just another sign of the industrial age gone wrong.
