Re: Walk 26 October 2020: Vale Fuzeiros, Sharon @ 50: CLOSED

All ten stayed for lunch al fresco on two tables of 5.  We had a very enjoyable lunch and Wendy provided home made cake and candles for the birthday girl.  A good time was had by all.

It was only a short walk, even though we tried to extend it at the end.  But plenty of hills to keep everyone busy.

Re: WALK - MONDAY 12 OCTOBER - ODELOUCA CLOSED

Sorry no photos this week as the camera went wrong.  10 walkers and 4 dogs enjoyed the lovely views down to the river and into the hills.  The path along the ridge is very overgrown now as the path has changed as the electricity board have moved their fence and they are installing solar panels on the other side of the fence.  We also had an incident by the river as Keesha fell into the water and struggled to get back up the steep embankment.  Luckily the guys managed to drag her back up.  Seven of us enjoyed a very nice al-fresco lunch after at Ourique restaurant.
