Re: Numbers on my walks in November & December

As indeed I do, see :
http://www.forum.carvoeiro.com/viewtopi ... 39&t=25428

I had you on my s/s but left you off the list above as hadn't seen you for some time...now included. We are also due out in November , so fingers crossed; I am currently self-isolating from recent trip.

Re: Faro Airport

Just to say that leaving Faro today was a breeze...hardly anyone at car return/luggage check in/security/cafe....plane only 25% full, left 15 mins early!
Full marks to Easyjet for ensuring masks and socially-distanced boarding and leaving.
Cold in UK though, can't wait to get back!

Re: Numbers on my walks in November & December

Thanks for volunteering to do some walks David.....the MeetUp Group are Lagos based & I came across them once at the Mia Ria...I wondered what the noise was, must have been about 50. I think they charge for walks, not sure. If anyone wants to lead an extra walk & is unsure of a route, quite happy to...

Numbers on my walks in November & December

Hi all With walk numbers currently reduced to only 10, there will obviously be some disappointment over whichever selection method is chosen. After much consideration, I think longevity with CVO Ramblers is probably paramount. Hence I propose to select on the following basis : If, after the walk has...

Re: Walk 21September 2020: Casinhas/Sua Vide. CLOSED

The early auspices weren't too good, cloudy and barely over 20C , and I was thinking we should have started at our normal time of 1000...in fact that what Colin thought it was! Matters weren't helped by the cafe being shut, with the locals explaining that madame had taken the children to school and ...

Walks in October & November 2020

Just to say that I shall post & lead walks from 26 October to 30 November inclusive. They will be mainly on a Monday, sometimes a Tuesday , depending on when restaurants are open. We need to adhere to covid rules, currently only 10 people (& not more than 4 at a cafe if within 300 m of a school!) .....

Re: Walk 21September 2020: Casinhas/Sua Vide. CLOSED

I did a recce today to refresh my mind, which was just as well as a local farmer stopped me going down his track that I used as a short cut : I realised later that there was a new bolted gate blocking the other end! As a consequence, there is a 7 minute walk along the road at the beginning and end f...

Re: Walk 26 October 2020: Norinho/Silves Windmill. CLOSED

As I understand the State of Contingency currently extends to September 30th only. If this is the case I assume you will follow the original order for the walk up to 20 people and not re-introduce a “reserve” list. Let’s hope they have the conditions that allow the increase by the end of the month....

Re: Walk 14 September 2020 : Norinho, Enxerim

It's been a long time since we only had 6 on a walk...now the legal max in England! But a relatively cool 28C as we set off on a slightly reduced Enxerim walk....no steep hills, no loop at top. But the bulldozers had been active: P1060841.jpg L to R : Marian, Sue, Ken, Paul, Richard Sue left her wal...

Walk 21September 2020: Casinhas/Sua Vide. CLOSED

Walk is now closed as we are only allowed 10. Assuming it's not too hot, we'll revisit this. I haven't done it since May 2018 , so hope I can remember it, though others have led here since. I won't be having lunch...that is, even if Casinhas is open. Track is fairly undulating, nothing (too!) steep...

Hi all
With the State of Contingency limiting numbers to 10, I will have to go with the first 10 responses I had , viz:
Geoff & Sue
David & Mieke
Mike
Colin & Sharon
Wendy
Linda & Russell

Sorry about this , but hope you understand. If any of the above can't make it, please advise.
