Re: Wedding

Marco from a Tascina in Lagoa does outside catering, might be worth getting a quote from him. We had our flowers done by a florist in Messines, cheaper than the CVO ones.

Re: Attempted Burglary

Interesting....we were advised that thieves don't tend to break-in when no-one is there these days: there's only TVs etc to steal, and they are cheap these days. Apparently they prefer to wait until the place is occupied & then take phones, wallets & credit cards : easier & more lucrative to sell on!

Re: Planning for next year's trips

Wish I'd seen this earlier, how did you find out?
I saw the advert in the paper yesterday & my daughter booked for half term, but prices rocketed during the day!

Re: Wedding

Our daughter was " married" at the Tivoli : great setting on the coast, but it's a lot pricier now.
Expect you know that you need to have the legal ceremony separately.

Walk Monday 5 November 2018 : Cafe Casinhas

I understand this route was spared any fire damage, so we will walk it earlier in the season than we normally do. Track is fairly undulating, nothing (too!) steep, with minimal loose scree. The final descent is a bit steep. Lovely countryside, plenty of orange groves, nice views from the top. It is ...

Walk Monday 29 October 2018 : Western Funcho

A lovely walk by the Western Barragem do Funcho. Most of it is flat(ish) but perhaps 20% is hilly.....nothing too severe, but it probably merits a "3" category for that part. I believe that this area was spared the worse of the fires ; if I am wrong, then we will do the Vale Fuzeiros walk , same sta...

Re: Walks in October/November/December 2018

Hi all We've heard about the terrible fires during the summer, and they appear to have affected a lot of the walks we usually do. I'll be checking when I get out there as to which ones are still viable, but will only be publicicing details of the first few walks, which should be OK. There will be wa...

Re: Support for Families in the Algarve

Many thanks Su, but most of it needs to go to Wendy, whose original idea it was to save the small change from the walkers' lunches : to the CVO walkers who generously donated, including those even if they didn't stay to lunch: to Linda & Russell for carrying on the scheme in our absence...but mainly...
