Also if possible can you fit in our 2 visiting friends Dick and Maggie for both walk and lunch. Thanks Linda
....as it's you, and as it's a big restaurant, of course. But walk is now closed.

Hi
I have emailed you all separately, I think, about lunch , as follows :

Hi all
Fortunately O Caseiro can do lunch for 31 (!!!!) BUT they need menu choices by tomorrow ( sunday) morning at the latest, so please reply by return.
Cost is 8.5€ to include 1 drink, so expect about 10 € or 11€ , by the time we have a few more....

Choice is either :

chicken with mushrooms
or
baccalau with cream

Lovely blue skies, rather a fresh wind, but 25 turned up on time for the walk, unfortunately no coffee and no Jerry & Della , lost , somehow, up in Monchique!
Together with 3 dogs, we set off, admiring the cistus just coming into bloom.....some blank, as opposed to the usual 5 spots:

A gentle walk, a shade over 2 hours, 8kms, lovely countryside though:

Upon arrival at the restaurant, Jerry & Della mysteriously appeared with some cock-and-bull story about getting lost in Monchique , but 27 enjoyed lunch ( 32 walkers) at 11€ pp including tip, with 10€ for the charity kitty:

All in all, another new walk to add to the repertroire, though need to see if we can add another half hour ( volunteers for a recce please?).
