Journal Entry:
Turned in a load of laundry, went by the pet shop (Amy wanted to buy a present for her cat - feeling guilty for leaving her at home). I left Amy and Kerry, dropped off some film, checked email, then met the girls for a Chinese buffet. Had a huge, good lunch and returned to the pad. We were going to rent a boat and I go explore the coves to the west of town. I spent some time looking for a waterproof bag for my camera - I saw one in Lagos but I couldn't remember where and ended up buying a disposable waterproof camera. Unfortunately when we got down to the beach it was to windy for them to rent us a boat - so we had to sit on the beach again - poor us.

Later in the evening Amy and I went on a boat trip out to the grottos and coves that we were going to explore earlier. It was good, but the guide didn't speak English and wouldn't stop to let us take pictures. There's got to be hundreds of arches on the coast here.

Kerry wanted to get a tattoo so we tried to find the parlor, but by the time we got there it was closed. Had diner and then went out drinking. Ended up being a pretty major night and tomorrow is not going to be good - especially since we have a morning train to catch...
