Winding down in Lagos
We got back to Lagos a few days ago and we're starting to clean and tidy the boat before we leave it next week. Yesterday Sam did lots of work on the engine and we emptied and scrubbed out the big cockpit locker. It rained in the morning but cleared up by the end of the day. Today we cleaned the cushions in the main cabin and hoovered out all the disgusting crevices below, did a huge lot of washing, polished the metalwork and cleaned the safety lines. Then we went to the beach for a delightful swim, drank a jug of sangria in Linda's beach cafe, and came back to the boat for spaghetti with fresh cockles. It's a tough life here, but we're doing our best to cope.
