WalkAcross Lekki Peninsula - Day 3 in Tweets

Passed the night before Day 3 at LD's place. It was a drive of about 15km from the checkpoint at the end of Day 2. Rested well and was re-energize by a sumptuous meal and a hot shower.

Take off time was approx 08:00 and I got to Igando Oloja 25 minutes later. At this stage I still had about 24km to cover on the last. The day started of as very cloudy and cool.
