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.

Re: WALK - MONDAY 5 OCTOBER - CALDAS DE MONCHIQUE CLOSED

Caldas de Monchique.jpg The weather was perfect for our first walk of the winter season. We had the maximum allowed 10 x walkers and 4 x dogs came along to help make up the numbers.
