Walk Monday 2 December 2019 : Norinho/Silves Windmill

Post by Geoff » Wed Oct 09, 2019 5:18 pm

This will start from Norinho but walk up to the windmill, then back for lunch!

It's flat along the lavada to start, has 5 minutes of back road and then is all on country tracks, many of them uphill. There is one water crossing ( and re-crossing) but should be fordable if it doesn't rain too much.

Duration : guestimate 2h 30m

The cafe has been tried and recommended : menu and size is limited but they do a good grilled meat or fish prata de dia. Optional lunch price is 8.5€ for chicken/pork/Carapau/chicken with chick peas but 12.5€ for Dorada......but please note new lunch price policy at viewtopic.php?f=39&t=27800 so , as no one will have any change, cost will be 10€ for chicken/pork etc and 15€ for dorada. We will need to order before the walk. See also my post below.

Degree of Difficulty ( scale 1:5 ) : 3, energetic.

Start: 1000.....but please arrive by 0945 if you want a coffee!

Dogs. Dogs are allowed as long as they are under control and are quiet.

Directions : drive from Carvoeiro to Silves, go over the bridge and turn right and follow the N124 for about 3.2 kms until you see Cafe Casa de Pasto a Norinho on your left : park in layby opposite.

GPS : 37°12'20.6"N, 8°24'38.0"W
37.2057131N 8.4116553,312W

It is ESSENTIAL that you indicate below if you can come and whether you want lunch, as numbers will be limited to about 20. Thank you.

Walking boots/stout trainers recommended and walking poles.

Usual caveats - all walks are at your own risk, and we do not walk if it is pouring with rain...no charge, of course...I will endeavour to put any cancellation note on this site by 0830 on the day of the walk.

Any questions , please ask or ring 282 380015 preferably between 1800-1900 or 8am to 9am but not before 23 October.
