8.10am and we were on our way. Not that early but early enough for us. Parking was hard in Lisbon so we needed to be gone before the inspectors started on their rounds. Quick crappy breakfast and out the door for the last long haul in Portugal. Well when I say long haul I mean 300 k's, just down the road really. I did most of the driving with my own thoughts as Jac slept away the journey. I sat under the speed limit to try and save fuel. The stupid hire car mob we went through charges you for a tank of fuel and tells you to bring it back empty. Just a cash making scheme. Well you can be sure I am going to have it coughing and spluttering as I drive it in through their gate on return. But being diesel I didn't want to run it out before I get there obviously, so I had to put €10 in just to make sure we do make it. So when I return it in 2 days time I may have to drive up and down their road a few times before handing the keys back. But anyways back on topic. We are now in Lagos. We arrived pretty early so went for a drive into the centre which was all narrow alleys, so got out as quick as we could. Missed an old lady as I turned a tight corner but scrapped the car. Thankfully it did no damage and managed to buff off the marks. Big win!! Rental car excess still intact. We then detoured via the supermarket and stopped at the beach. Here we had lunch, then walked on real sand. First one in a long, long time. We had a bit of a splash in the ocean, then relaxed on the beach for an hour allowing the sun to turn us a beautiful shade of lobster. Feeling rejuvenated, we checked into our apartment. It's a basic little studio with million dollar views, all for 19 euros a night. We have views right over Lagos, with the ocean on all sides. A great place to spend a few nights. Especially as the town is sleepy and relaxed, just what we feel like. So we left the car and wandered in to town looking at all the shops and restaurants. Tonight though we are going to cook (well when I say we, I mean me). It gives us a good chance to dose up on veggies, something that is surprisingly hard to do when travelling. So we wandered through the historic part of town, down to the marina, then back along one of the inlets watching the abundance of fish and crabs feeding. As we turned for home, we found a small bottle shop where I bought a bottle of Beam for €14. How awesome is today? Then we stocked up on food for the night. We cooked a well needed meal of steak & veggies with limited utensils, all washed down with a bit of bourbs, all set to a beautiful backdrop. I'm really liking Lagos right now.
