I spent one month in Namibia and moved slowly from one place to another. However, I did noticed one thing-There’s Loads of Flamingo by the Ocean everywhere! When I was little, I always though Flamingo can only stay in a lake or Lagoon. But the fact it, they can live by the sea even with Seal and other animal around! Below are my “love” stories with the beautiful Flamingos:P
I stayed at a place called Long Beach. It’s by the coast between Swakamond and Welvis Bay in Namibia. I was told that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt had stayed at a place closeby when Angie was carrying her baby! It’s called Burning Shore.I didn’t stayed there, but I did have a very nice dinner(Kudu meat:P) over there.
I was there for 4 days and I tried to find out why Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt would picked this place to have a rest while carrying their first baby:P Then I found out WHY….The Flamingos……:P
I watched them since early morning…….
till they all went to SLEEP!!
It’s such a beautiful day…:P
Then the other day, I watched them again….and sea gulls….and I discovered they are eating Mussels!!! Well, I was wondering whether I could do the same! So, I picked up some mussel along the rocks…and eat them RAW!!!
Then on the third day, I moved to another area by the coast to watch the flamingos ..AGAIN:P
And I discovered flamingo actually like to clean themselves!!They literally diped their bodies into the water!!!
And they liked to fly from time to time..and move to other places to eat, bath and fight:P
It’s one of the most amazing place I have ever been….truly! Next time when you visit Namibia, do spend some time watching them,:P Cheers
