LAGOS JANUARY TO MARCH 2010
 

Cormorant
  Taken in Birdham Pool, I don't think Cormorants can read...
 

Seagulls
  Mike feeding the the Black Headed Gulls. All the bird pictures from here on were taken beside Emsworth Pond.
 

Coot
  A Coot with the most amazing feet.
 

Swans
  Swans, you can see the cheeky one trying to get bread straight from my hand.
 

Jane
  And here I am feeding the Swans and Ducks.
 

Ducks
  A very friendly Mr and Mrs Mallard. Needless to say there was much quacking going on, not by the ducks but by Mike.
 

Flares
  Firing flares on the beach.
 

Flares
  You can see what I mean about the smoke.
 

Flares
  Another flare supervised by a fully armed (9 mm hand gun and baton) Maritime Police lady.
 

City Ggate
  The old Lagos city wall is spectacular. This is the south west gate.
 

Church
  Church on the Lagos river front.
 

House
  A pretty house attached to the church.
 

Flowers
  Portuguese modern art. A mutilated marble woman and a dead dog in a small park by the river. Actually the dog was asleep but was a lovely counterpoint to the statue.
 

Flowers
  Between the marina offices and the marina are flower beds that began to flower in February.
 

Flowers
  More flowers.
 

Flowers
  It's that tramp again.
 

Flowers
  More flowers, this time in front of the marina hotel.
 

Flags
  One day I washed the courtesy flags of the sixteen countries we visited. On the rail is our yellow Q flag flown before clearing customs and immigration. Next to it is a 'diver underwater' flag that we flew when we were diving from the boat.
 

Station
  The lovely old Lagos railway station now unused and empty. It's a real shame because the new station is a concrete and glass monstrosity.
 

Station
  The southern end of the station. Unfortunately the back of the station is ruined by the tramps that sleep on the station platform.
