05/06/09 Off again
We left Lagos feeling a little more positive towards it than before. The free Wifi access was intermittent but better than Ayamonte where you could pay, which Peter and Joyce did, but they had found that the signal was not brilliant unless they were in the cockpit but got better at night or 4am in the morning. We had gone to the Lotita bar run by an English couple. They had lovely big comfy settees and a big screen for the Six Nations Rugby and free internet if you bought a drink, which sadly was a little more expensive than most Spanish bars.
Lagos had been very lively and the noise from the various bars went on well into the early morning hours which did not bother us as we are night owls and were sometimes in one of the bars but not responsible for the noise. Most noise came from the South bar and Lazyjacks where they had "Live Music" every night in a bar which in warm weather was completely open so the sound travelled easily. One night a week they had an "open mike" session - no comment! We went to the Portuguese Amuras bar which had lovely décor and comfy seats with a band on Friday and Saturday nights but the noise was minimal outside as it could be enclosed. However I would not like to be on a pontoon so close if I over-wintered in the marina as it could get irritating.
We set off westwards again planning to drop in briefly to provision in Ayamonte
