WALK - MONDAY 15 OCTOBER 2018 - ODELOUCA

Post by Linda and Russell » Tue Oct 09, 2018 3:53 pm

The walk will start from Restaurant Ourique, near the village of Odelouca. There are a few steep uphill stretches at the start up to the ridge where we can enjoy nice views of the hills and river and a steep downhill stretch on uneven ground. WE WALK CLOSE TO SOME ACTIVE BEE HIVES, WHICH CANNOT BE AVOIDED. The rest of the walk is fairly flat and we can enjoy the wildlife on the Odelouca river. The walk is only 8kms but is a grade 4 (energetic) due to the steep hills. The usual rules apply, wear suitable clothing and footwear, bring a drink, walking poles if you have them, no charge, walk at your own risk.
Meeting Time: 10:00am. Meeting Point: Restaurant Ourique. Directions: Leave the N125 at the Portimao/Monchique exit and follow the N124 directions Monchique/Silves. At the roundabouts keep right and follow the signs for Silves. The restaurant is on the right side of the road on a sharp bend before Odelouca. Please park just before the restaurant. The restaurant should be open for coffee and they also do a set meal within our 10 euros budget, including tip etc. Linda and Russell will be guiding this walk and the contact number on the day is: 0044 796 0552618. Please indicate below if you would like to join the walk and also if you would like to stay for lunch. Thank you.

Linda reprts :

"There were 16 walkers today: Wendy, Karen, Caroline, Steve, Wendy, Jenny, Dawn, John, Colin, Sharon, Mike, Ray, Ellen, Isabel, Linda and Russell, plus 4 dogs. We had a very enjoyable walk enjoying the views from the top of the ridge. Half way through the walk the rain started so we have a soggy looking photo this week. Everyone was in good spirits and some even said they enjoyed the rain. Thirteen of us enjoyed a very nice lunch at Restaurant Ourique in our own private room at the back. There was no electricity and no water but they did a good job ensuring we had plenty of nice hot food. We raised 20 euros for the charity.
We did 8 kms in 2 hours."

That's excellent work.....last time I did this walk, we had to crawl under barbed wire!
