Once again we woke up to a damp grey day. Anne started work on sewing projects while Stephen went off on various chores around town.


Signs that the world is small and we have been in Lagos for too long:


1. Stephen met Tom our sailing instructor who is here on holiday.

2. Walking back from the boat yard a Portuguese woman (very attractive) said “hello do you remember me!” It turned out she was the lady in the shop who sold Anne’s Crocs (shoes) and in addition her husband works in the boat yard and Stephen had just been talking to him about some Teak repair work!


Anne has all the curtains and cockpit cushions cut out now. Tomorrow I expect the sewing machine to be working flat out!


This evening we had our neighbours from Amy Rose round for a drink to say goodbye and then it was out to the South Bar for the Navigators net social. It is slowly dawning on me how many people actually listen to the net I broadcast (it’s a lot). We did meet an American couple who have sailed through the Great Lakes so we will meet up with them again to learn more about their experiences.
