Out and about
17 May 2009 | Lagos
We are enjoying the sun and company here but are a bit disappointed with sailing conditions which seem too reminiscent of our experience sailing through the Med when we took Kaivalya home to the UK - too much or too little wind. Sue warned us not to go out if we can hear the waves breaking on the beach in the marina as it can get very uncomfortable sailing in the bay as waves seem to funnel into the bay and reflect off the cliffs.
Shopping here easy as there is a Ecomarche over the bridge about 500m away and a Pingo Doce in the opposite direction a little further away. Elsewhere in the town there is Lidl and Intermarche. There is a covered market on the front and another smaller Saturday one, next to the Bus station opposite the bridge.
There are lots of twisting and often steep streets in the town filled with bars, restaurants and small shops selling all sorts of things. Steve visited the chandlery in the boatyard - expensive of course but there is another useful DIY/iron mongers up the hill from Lidl. Fortunately there is a book swap here in the Marina Laundrette so we can change some of our books.
