A walk on 3rd Jan

Is anyone around to do a nice simple walk on Thursday 3rd Jan?

I am thinking of Gale Beach to Armacao de Pera along the beach then back via the Salgados boardwalk.

If anyone is interested then I will post directions to the meeting point. 10am start and a gentle flat walk of about 2 hours.

Re: BT Sports

If you have BT Sport home in the UK then get the BT Sport App on your iPad or laptop. Once you have that working (you will need to access it via a username and password) you can them chromecast onto TV or link laptop into TV. You will need a VPN and one I use is Free VPN.
