ADVENTURES AT THE SEASIDE
In the early summer of 2005, travel writers Chris Marais and Julienne du Toit set out on an extended trip that would span the 3,200 km coastline from Alexander Bay on the southern edge of Namibia to Kosi Bay on the Mozambican border.
On their three-month journey, they met the weird and the wonderful, the criminal and the crazy elements of seaside South Africa.
Shorelines is all about diamond divers, surfers, skippers home from the sea, fishermen, smart baboons, dodgy developers, Rastafarians, Cadillac collectors, forest adventurers, Xhosa nannies, sushi chefs, Zulu shield-makers, abalone poachers and a modern-day Robinson Crusoe.
It’s a generous slice of South African life, with all its foibles, squabbles and the occasional homicidal oyster. Come in, the water’s fine – for now…
