Re: Luggage in cars

Have you asked if you can park your cars in drive of your villa then head into town for a beer?

Re: WALK ON 2nd MAY: PORCHES TO ALBANDEIRO BEACH

Many apologies to Nick for us leaving on time, if you had said you were coming we would have waited, honest. Eleven of us set out, Carol & Willie, Sue & Ken, Sue & Geoff, Margaret & Brian, Margaret & Ian and Zillah. Lovely walk through to the cliffs and some lovely piccies taken. We even saw hoopoes...

Re: WALK ON MONDAY 25th APRIL: SILVES WINDMILL FROM ENXERIM

Seven of us: Willie & Carol, Ken & Sue, Nigel & Helen & Jane, slightly longer than normal as Nigel is still recovering from his ski accident and Carol from her bout of flu. It was very hot and the walk down through the shady woods was welcome, apart from the bit near the bottom they are clearing! Af...

Re: Walk Saturday 7 May 2016 : Recci at Caldas de Monchique

It was Foz do Banho. Not your 10 euro lunch but worth it for views if outside on terrace. You will probably need to book if you want terrace.

Will send notes in next few days.

Re: Walk Saturday 7 May 2016 : Recci at Caldas de Monchique

Geoff A group of us did this walk, I think, at the end of March - Karen & Caroline, Brian & Penny, Rod & Gail & Carol and I. Some truly spectacular views and a superb lunch at the restaurant. Took us about two hours and a half and we were a wee bit tired at end of it. Would not suit Bruce as getting...

WALK ON 2nd MAY: PORCHES TO ALBANDEIRO BEACH

This is a superb walk of great variety, starting off through a hamlet, then crossing the dunes, then through a valley to the cliffs between Marinha and Albandeiro Beaches then back through the valley. A camera is a must if you have not seen the cliffs! It is no more than a 1 on our scale but there i...

WALK ON MONDAY 25th APRIL: SILVES WINDMILL FROM ENXERIM

In the absence of our esteemed leader Geoff we will lead one of his favourite walks, from the Cafe at Enxerim to Silves Windmill then a few points east. There are some steep hills to climb especially near the start, though the steepest (to the Windmill) is optional. There are some rivers to cross! D...

Re: Walk on 21st March, Odiaxere

Actually 29!

Lots of new people, mainly Canadians, but we don't mind. I must stop talking to Canadians in these eating places!

Lovely walk enjoyed by all.

Re: Walk on 21st March, Odiaxere

Apologies, a 1 means very easy, no hills! The predicted weather forecast for Monday is showers at 10 then more at 12. This should not stop us but best to pack a rain jacket. I will check this again on Sunday, then Monday at about 8.30am for a final decision. Walk is proving very popular but all will...
