17 December 2009 | Lagos
Apparently last night there were a sequence of earthquakes south-west of here, off Cape St Vincent, the strongest of which was 6 on the Richter scale. Although the strong one was felt in Lagos town, we slept blissfully through it, insulated from earthquakes by the water surrounding our floating home. Another good reason to be liveaboards!
This evening we are the organisers of a carol-singing tour of the pontoons and quayside bars, so I'm taking along my little ukelele guitar and headtorch, so I can see the words of the carols. This is an annual event here, the proceeds going to the local children's home.
Tomorrow the Christmas dinner organised by the marina. Last year's was great fun, with the conga line snaking round and round the restaurant and the music going on unbroken well into the small hours!
More anon. No further forward on the boom yet, but our bimini is in place, and looks great. Photo to prove it!
