Ladies only walk : International Women’s Day,Thurs 8 March

Post by Geoff » Thu Feb 01, 2018 1:23 pm

This is a Ladies only Charity walk, sorry fellas!

Our friends and fellow CVO Walkers " back in the Day" , Su & Mike, have started a charity to help local Portuguese Families. As part of their fund raising activities, they are organising a walk ( see below) and lunch. The cost will be 10€ to include the lunch.

Please sign-in below if you want to come or email Su on : su.davis@sapo.pt

Further details of charity are at : http://www.facebook.com/groups/1889562931361792/

It is a walk by the confluence of the Arade and the Odelouca. Around the Ilha do Rosario with beautiful views .It should take just over 2 hours & is easy.

Distance about 9km or 5 miles. It is similar to the "Sunflower Landscapes" walk or the Julie Stratham walk ...but there is a 5k option!

The Mira Rio Cafe/Restaurant does a good Prato de Dia .

Start : 10.00

Degree of difficulty: mainly flat, grade 1 ( scale 1:5)

Directions: from CVO , cross the bridge into Silves & turn left on the R124towards Montchique/Portimao. After a little under 5 km you will see the Mira Rio cafe & restaurant on your left after a sharpish right hand bend. Parking is at the cafe.

Stout trainers/boots & a bottle of water suggested! Take your binoculars if you are a bird watcher. A walking pole is certainly useful......if the weather changes, bring some wet weather gear but I expect they won't be walking if it's really wet!

Any cancellation notice will be posted by 0830/0900 on the day.

All walks are at your own risk.

As us lads have been ‘banned’ from this walk can I suggest we have one of our own!

Are we also ‘banned’ from the lunch?

I would guess so.....but would you really want to lunch with 20 + women?

I'm giving a talk to the Silves Rotary that day on CVO Ramblers , would you believe, so up to you to organise something Willie!!
