Thank you to those (14 of us and 4 dogs) who could make it today, we had a lovely walk. There was a cool breeze at the start but it warmed up when the sun came out. We enjoyed the open countryside and the lovely smells from the orange groves. We completed 11 1/2 kms in 2 3/4 hours.

We borrowed two dogs from Portimao Canil who are in foster care awaiting adoption. They joined us for most of the walk and were very well behaved. They are still available for adoption if anyone is interested.

Thirteen of us enjoyed an excellent lunch at El Barco Restaurant in Lagoa. He is normally fully booked as we have witnessed on previous visits. But, due to the virus, he only had 2 customers yesterday and only 4 others apart from us today. He is trying to stay open to keep up his reputation. So charity began at home today for us, we gave all the tip money and charity money to them. They will need it as they are on half wages.

Well done all of you walkers.....looks as if the dogs enjoyed it too.....we have had a great time in Cambodia but can't go to Vietnam , so are having to abort our holiday and have managed to get a flight back today. Should have stayed in Portugal.

Glad you have managed to support the local restaurants.....we need them there when we get back, whenever that is!
