Re: WALK - MONDAY 30 DECEMBER 2019 - LAGOA

This week 12 walkers and 5 dogs met in Lagoa and walked out into the countryside. Up and down country lanes, across the N125 and under the N22 passing lots of oranges groves and enjoying the warm sunny day. We borrowed a dog in foster care from the Portimao canil (Tracy) who recently had puppies and...

Re: WALK - MONDAY 23 DECEMBER 2019 - FIGUEIRA

On another glorious sunny day, 8 remainers and 3 dogs headed out from Figeira into the open countryside. For the first time this winter we encountered huge puddles and flowing river crossings. Not to be deterred we splashed through all the water and mud with the sun beating down on the backs of our ...

Re: WALK - TUESDAY 17 DECEMBER 2019 PARREIRINHA

On a beautiful sunny morning 15 scantily clad walkers and 5 dogs enjoyed coffees at cafe Parreirinho. Orders for lunch were taken before we headed up into the hills. We cut out the uphill scramble but still found lots of hills to climb. After a truly invigorating 2 hours in the warm sun we arrived b...

WALK - MONDAY 30 DECEMBER 2019 - LAGOA

The walk starts from Restaurant Barca Velha, opposite the Fatacil in Lagoa. It is approximately 12kms, therefore 2 3/4 hours, although it is long there are not many hills, so it is a grade 3 due to the length. We head out of Lagoa along dirt tracks and out into the countryside. We pass deserted farm...

Re: WALK - TUESDAY 17 DECEMBER 2019 PARREIRINHA

The walk will start from Restaurant Casa De Pasto Parreirinha near the village of Odelouca. It is only 8kms, therefore around 2 hours. There are lots of ups and downs but nothing on all fours and all on good tracks. It is a grade 3.5 due to the number of ups and downs. We will be able to see the mun...

Re: WALK - MONDAY 21 OCTOBER 2019 - CALDAS DE MONCHIQUE - CLOSED AS FULLY BOOKED

After quite a few last minute cancellations, 17 of us and 5 dogs headed down into the cold valley. We then had a long climb uphill and out into the glorious sunshine. We enjoyed some great views all the way down to the coast. Some of the tracks are becoming overgrown so there were a few scratched le...

Re: WALK - MONDAY 7 OCTOBER 2019 - ODELOUCA - CLOSED AS FULLY BOOKED

There were 17 walkers and 2 dogs for this first walk of the winter season. Unfortunately the cafe does not open until 10am now so no pre-walk drinks, although it did open just in time for the toilet and to book lunch before we set off in the hot sun. We enjoyed some great views from the ridge top an...

Re: WALK - MONDAY 14 OCTOBER 2019 - RIBBA A TORRINHA - CLOSED AS FULLY BOOKED

We had a very enjoyable walk in the open countryside and saw no other people, dogs, houses or cars. The rain held off until we were all inside cafe Casa De Pasto Riba Serra enjoying lunch. We had a couple of guys fall over on the walk (Russell and Nicholas) and a few people had scratches from the br...
