EXTRA WALK AT TWO RIVERS, THURS 14th MARCH

Post by williew »

Meet: Mia Rio Restaurant Time: 10:00am Thursday 14th March

This is a familiar walk by the confluence of the Arade and the Odelouca around the Ilha de Rosario with beautiful views and bird watching opportunities. Distance about 9km, approximately 2hours, depending on stops. It is similar to the "Sunflower Landscapes" walk or the Julie Stratham walk, but with an different part to include an uphill stretch, therefore a grade 2, slightly energetic.

Directions: from CVO, cross the bridge into Silves & turn left on the N124 towards Monchique/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 café. You can also take the N124 from Portimao to Silves and the café is 5km on the right.

Stout trainers/boots & a bottle of water suggested! Take your binoculars if you are a bird watcher. A walking pole is certainly useful. All walks at your own risk, no charge. We will not be walking in pouring rain and any cancellation will be posted by 8:30am on the day.

The restaurant should be open for refreshments at the start and end of the walk. They also do a set menu within our 10 euro budget, including tips etc. for anyone wishing to join us for lunch.

Please put your name down if you would like to join the walk and also indicate if you are staying for lunch.

There have been a few walks here in the past few weeks so I have decided we will do a variation and 'go over the top' - there is a steady walk uphill on a road near the start but the views at the top are stunning and well worth it. Still a Cat 2 walk and relatively easy.

A truly lovely walk in the sun today at “Two Rivers” but going over the top and with the slight diversion to see the view back to Silves. Fifteen people participated: Willie & Tim, Frank & Iva, Terry & Barbara, Rod & Gail, Sue & Steve, Sandy, Noel & Trish and Andrew & Diane. Carol & Kath joined us for lunch. Lots of lovely Spring flowers seen and the Walk Director even laid on musical entertainment at Club Nauitco, half way round. Lunch was had at Miro Rio and for ten euros we gave a tip and had 20euro for the charity - cracking day!
