"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....Ian and Margaret also walked.See photo.
