View of the harbor
Wednesdays, Lagos seems to come alive. No longer can we park wherever we want ... had to hunt for a parking space.
On our way into the center, we stroll thru the fish market
The men head to their favorite wine shop; MF & I explored a few streets ... on our way to the bead shop. We discovered the bead shop a couple of days ago - found locally-made ceramic beads and cork ropes for stringing beads. Now we're on a mission to make a cork brooch, using the cork rope.
Scenes along our walk
An hour or so later, we meet up ... Skip is wheeling and dealing with a sunglass hustler. The hustler started his pitch at 180 Euro; by the time we arrived; Skip had him down to 5 Euro ... but only if Mary Fern could come up with 2.50 of the Euro...apparently no one had change for Skip's new best friend.
We off again - to find Euro Car ... need some info.
Main drag of Lagos
Euro car's not open; it's time for lunch. O Camilo's is highly touted; beautiful views on a cliff. We're off ... guy at the wine store gave directions. We make a wrong turn off the round about. I haul out my Blackberry Maps app ... not much appreciated ... heard lots of front seat grumbling about how those darn apps send you the shortest direction but not necessarily the most direct. Nonetheless, we arrive. The view? OMG ... I'll let the pics speak for themselves.
The meals ... best - so far - in the Algarve
I wish I'd turned on the video for the drive home ... we knew the way, didn't need my GPS app, almost immediately made a wrong turn. Spent the next 15 mins going up and down almost impassible streets - most weren't wide enough for 2 cars. Poor Skip - our auto is a stick shift and we were either going straight up or straight down or about to go into a wall. Highly entertaining ... if you weren't driving. We have a great wheelman.
Another great day!
