I'm happy to pick you up in either Carvoeiro or Lagoa Jim, if you give me your address.

Hi Geoff

David is doing walk next day but hasn't posted it yet due to being caught up in the storm in South England. Will be posted on Wednesday night.


Please note also that if there is a long waiting list for this Beyond Funcho walk, I will redo the walk later, probably the following week

The water levels were so high, we had to walk along the road before clambering down through the cistus:

and posing by the barragem/river, as still as a mill pond...

Before climbing up the hill, with a rest at the ruined farmhouse:

Onwards and upwards...where newcomer Jim fell for the old line that newcomers had to climb the trigpoint, which he gamely did:

I meant to add that we met with Mike & Su of the charity beforehand and gave them 306€ ; David had collected 35€ for his overflow walks.....341€ so far, with some more to come!
