WalkAcross Lekki Peninsula - Day 1 in Tweets

Just woke up, still I got some aches on my feet but they are easing. I managed to complete 17km on Day 1, 55km to go.

Day 2 is Environmental Saturday and the time now is almost 08:00 so I have a couple of hours before setting out. Some updates on Day 1 below using tweets from yesterday. I got a few pictures which I'll upload later.
