WALK - MONDAY 22 OCTOBER 2018

Post by Linda and Russell »

RIBBA A TORRINHA, on the way to Monchique. Distance 10kms, approximately 2 1/2 hours. Meeting Point: Café Casa De Pasto Riba E Serra Time: 10:00.
There are a few gradual uphill climbs, and one short steep descent, therefore it is a grade 3 walk (medium). A lot of the vegetation has been destroyed by the wildfires in this area but it is starting to come back to life and we can enjoy some nice views of Monchique area. The rules apply: wear suitable footwear, bring water, poles if you have them, no charge, walk at your own risk etc. If you would like to join us please add your name below. Directions to meeting point: Follow the N125 towards Portimao then turn off and follow the signs for Monchique. At the roundabout take the left turning for Monchique (N266). At the village of Rasmalho you will see the Café Casa De Pasto Riba E Serra on your left. Park on the right-hand side of the road, opposite the café. The café is open for coffee and they also do a very traditional Portuguese lunch within the 10 euro budget, including tip etc. We will drive up to the starting point of the walk which is around 3/4kms further along near the brown sign on the right Ribba A Torrinha. Linda and Russell will be leading this walk. The phone contact on the day will be 0044 7960552618. Please indicate below if you will be joining us for the walk and if you also would like to join us for lunch. Thank you.

Dear Linda and Russell,

Long time past but the B&B is closed for the season so we have time to participate again in walks.
We will be there for the walk, not for lunch this time.

Looking forward to see you both again.


regards
Manuela and Theo

Linda reports:

"17 walkers and 4 dogs this week. Wendy, Steve, Jenny, Graham, Margaret, Ian, Wendy, Linda, Jon, Dawn, Susan, Brid, Maggie, Colin, Sharon, Manuela and Russell.

We enjoyed the peaceful countryside and saw no other people or houses the whole walk. There is a lot of damage from the wildfires but the paths are much wider and easier to walk. We covered the 10kms in 2 hours 25mins with an elevation gain of 397 metres. Thirteen of us enjoyed a nice lunch at Café Casa De Pasto. We pre ordered the food before the walk so we had very fast and efficient service. Sorry no money for the charity this week as we had too many drinks and left a nice tip for the waitress!!!! "
