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...

Re: Walk Monday 28 May 2018 : Casinhas. CLOSED

A lovely day for walking , our last of the season. Mike & Su came and we were able to give the 149.5€ for their ADL charity, collected from CVO walkers during the past year on our walks, mainly from those who had lunch, but also from other contributions : another 5€ was added by those who lunched la...

Re: Walk thursday 24 May 2018 : Pescadores

Who would have though that pouring rain at 0600 would be followed by blue skies and sunshine, with just a bit of breeze, when we let at 1015, due to some lingering over coffees. The new part of the walk was a bit overgrown : must bring machete or secateurs next time! However, everyone managed it Ok,...

Re: Walk Monday 28 May 2018 : Casinhas

Please note that Casinhas is unfortunately shut, so we will be starting from the little cafe about 500m further up the road, please see directions above. As we are going to a hash that evening, we will not be organising any lunch either, just a drink at the cafe at the end. There are plenty of othe...

Re: Walk Thursday 17 May 2018 : beyond Funcho

A beautiful day, 11 walkers, 9 lunchers , Colin bravely came, despite dropping a door on his foot. Unfortunately, the water levels were high which meant a bit of extra tarmac, but some lovely views and some walking by the water: Image00001.jpg Then the hill....with Colin resting his foot at the top ...

Walk 14 May 2018 : Barragem de Funcho

This is the second walk lead by Wendy : please sign up and support her. It's a just over 2.5 hours and it has a couple of steady inclines, but is otherwise predominantly flat(ish)......unless you want to detour to the trig point ( which 5 of us have done in the past, and adds about 15mins).....and g...
