In the evening we joined with some other marina bound Lagos sailors and went Carol
singing around the marina and bars – and we were sober! We also collected
money for the local orphanage. Although it was just a bit of fun, we ended up
raising over 250 euros. We are now feeling a bit more festive. We keep
forgetting how close Christmas is with the weather being so warm and sunny.
After the singing we all went to the local bar for a well

they arrived in 2000 and are still here. We really need to leave in spring.
They came back to Wandering Dragon for a drink (and to have a look round. Boaties
are all very nosey so when we get the opportunity to look round a different
type of boat we jump at it).
After they left Stephen asked where Yoyo was. After looking
around and calling we realised she was no longer down below. So we opened the
hatch and called – she came bounding back. She had managed to creep out undetected
while we were saying goodnight to our guests.
