"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!
