Alighting the BRT at Marina, I boarded a bus headed for Lekki while staring at Google Maps all through (I didn’t want to get lost). The second leg of the trip lasted for a couple minutes and eventually, I alighted again at Lekki Peninsula Scheme 1 or Phase 1 for a bike ride to Bics Garden and Boat Club.
