Wreck of the Eduard Bohlen on Namibia's Skeleton Coast

Wreck of the Eduard Bohlen which possibly personifies the loneliness of Namibia's Skeleton Coast. The Bohlen was a steamer that ran aground at Conception Bay, 100 kilometers south of Walvis Bay, in 1909. Its rusting remains lie partially buried in the sand, now 100 meters inland due to the buildup of sand washed in from the sea. The interaction between the cold air coming from the sea and the dry air of the desert causes immense fogs and strong currents, causing sailors to lose their way.
