Arrival in Lagos

We had a leisurely breackfast in Sagres before pulling the anchor and having a fun sail along the coast in flat water to Lagos - Sarah helmed all the way and coped really well with the gusty conditions. After months of being in the swell of the Atlantic Andrew and I were delighted to be in the Algarve even though we could see high rises on the horizon..... 

Askari loves these calm seas and just flew

Interesting kayak tour!

On the waiting pontoon for Lagos Marina
We got a great berth at Lagos in what we have called Oyster ally as there are 6 other Oysters all around us. We asked Rui one of the marineros where we should eat for Fish for Sarah's last night - surprisingly (not) his brother had a restaurant so that's where we went and we totally treated, including getting to sample grandmas homemade fig desert and local moonshine called Medronho, which is a fruit brandy not commercialyl made, it was surprisingly delicious. It is apparently an honour to share with friends and cannot be bought.

Trying Medronho and grandma's desert

Sarah's off back to Lisbon -6.30am!!
Sarah left us early the next morning - the train station is just behind the marina so it's very handy.

Now onto boat jobs and a bit of exploring before the next visit - Andrew's son James arrives at the end of the week.
