Re: WALK - MONDAY 16 MARCH2020 - LAGOA CLOSED

Thirteen of us enjoyed an excellent lunch at El Barco Restaurant in Lagoa. He is normally fully booked as we have witnessed on previous visits. But, due to the virus, he only had 2 customers yesterday and only 4 others apart from us today. He is trying to stay open to keep up his reputation. So char...

We borrowed two dogs from Portimao Canil who are in foster care awaiting adoption. They joined us for most of the walk and were very well behaved. They are still available for adoption if anyone is interested.

Patching up the cuts.jpg Thank you to those (14 of us and 4 dogs) who could make it today, we had a lovely walk. There was a cool breeze at the start but it warmed up when the sun came out. We enjoyed the open countryside and the lovely smells from the orange groves. We completed 11 1/2 kms in 2 3/...

Re: WALK - MONDAY 9 MARCH 2020 - FIGUEIRAS - CLOSED

An absolutely beautiful day and 17 walkers and 4 dogs enjoyed a lovely walk beside the river, on the levada and out into the countryside. We completed 11.42kms and had plenty of refreshment stops as it was a warm day at 24C. We even found a couple of rivers for the dogs to cool off. We said goodbye ...

WALK - MONDAY 30 MARCH 2020 - RIBEIRA DAS CANAS

Linda and Russell will be leading this walk. The walk is 9kms, around 2 hours. There is one uphill section but the rest is fairly flat, therefore quite a moderate walk. We have 4 x water crossings and a muddy area. It is very scenic as we walk beside the river and later head down a secluded valley b...

The group all kept together and the threatened rain did not appear, we even had sunshine. Thirteen of us enjoyed lunch at the Cafe Pasta at Rasmalho and made 15 euros for the...
