WALK - MONDAY 30 DECEMBER 2019 - LAGOA

Post by Linda and Russell » Sun Dec 01, 2019 1:25 pm

The walk starts from Restaurant Barca Velha, opposite the Fatacil in Lagoa. It is approximately 12kms, therefore 2 3/4 hours, although it is long there are not many hills, so it is a grade 3 due to the length. We head out of Lagoa along dirt tracks and out into the countryside. We pass deserted farm houses and eventually out into open countryside. We have to cross the N125 and go under the A22 but we also walk past lots of orange groves and enjoy views of the open countryside. We then walk along a long stretch of levada and head back to Lagoa. The usual rules apply: wear suitable footwear and clothing and bring a drink. There is no charge and you walk at your own risk. The Restaurant is not open for the start of the walk but will be open for lunch. They do a set menu within our usual 10 euros budget.

Meeting time: 10:00am Directions: At Lagoa join the N125 and head East, at the roundabout as you leave Lagoa take the right turn. The Restaurant Barca Velha is on the left in a row of shops and the Fatacil is on the right hand side. There are parking spaces nearby. Address: R. do Parque Empresarial do Algarve Loja 9, 8400-431 Lagoa. Linda and Russell will be leading this walk whilst Geoff is away in the UK. Our contact on the day is: 0044 796 0552618. Please indicate below if you would like to join us for the walk and also if you would like to stay for lunch. Thank you.

This week 12 walkers and 5 dogs met in Lagoa and walked out into the countryside. Up and down country lanes, across the N125 and under the N22 passing lots of oranges groves and enjoying the warm sunny day. We borrowed a dog in foster care from the Portimao canil (Tracy) who recently had puppies and is waiting to be adopted. She thoroughly enjoyed the walk and the company of the other walkers and dogs. We stopped to drop her back off at her foster home and the puppies came out to greet us. Then we joined up with the levada and headed back to Lagoa where 10 of us enjoyed lunch at the Barca Velha restaurant. We made a toast to Geoff who will be back next week to take back his role as walk leader. We completed the 11.55kms in 2hours 36mins. Happy New Year to all. Linda and Russell.
