WALK - MONDAY 15 JANUARY 2018 - SILVES FARMHOUSE

Post by Linda and Russell » Sat Dec 09, 2017 11:04 am

There is a section over grass, but most is on well defined tracks, with a number of steepish, but short, ups and downs.

Degree of Difficulty ( scale 1:5 ) : 3 Energetic

Start:10.00 am

Directions : Drive to Silves, go over bridge and turn left on N124. After about 1km, you will pass the Continente suprmarket on the right hand side. Drive another 400m and turn right, almost doubling back on yourself.
Drive straight on for about 800 m ( going past the prison, the big white block on the left with barbed wire) and park in the Jardim do Largo da Republico, or nearby.
There are 3 coffee shops nearby, Cafe Jardin is where we will meet.

GPS : 37.189676N, 8.445618W

Usual caveats: all walks are at your own risk, and we do not walk if it is pouring with rain. We will endevour to put any cancellation note on this site by 08.30 on the day of the walk. Walking boots/stout trainers , walking pole(s), hats and water recommended. No charge.

For anyone wishing to join us for lunch we will drive a few kms to the Mia Rio where they serve a set menu within our 10 euros budget, including tip etc.

Please indicate below if you are joining us for the walk and if you are also joining us for lunch. Thank you Linda.

Linda reports :

"There were 18 walkers and 3 x dogs. Wendy, Steve, Richard, Gerry, Marry, Paddy, Gill, Jim, Willie, Gordon, Jane, Gordon, Rose, Wendy, Jenny, Ros, Linda and Russell.


Wendy led the walk for us, so it was slightly different from your walk last year but very enjoyable on yet another sunny day. We finished the 8.5 kms in less than 2 hours. Eight of us went on the have lunch at the Mira Rio where they served deer meat. We raised an extra 15 euros for the charity. Thank you to Wendy for an enjoyable walk."

....Hi Ian....sorry to be missing you & Margaret....I expect the venison was washed down with plenty of Pias and your names were omitted in the consequent haze....
