Re: Walk Monday 2 December 2019 : Vale Fuzeiros. CLOSED

21 walkers and 1 dog arrived for the walk : 2 walking wounded, Willie and Mieke came for lunch. It was a bit of a gentle stroll, our last for the autumn, just under 2 hours for about 7.5km. We seemed to have lost someone by the first menhir though.... Image00001.jpg ...and some of the hills were a b...

21 walkers, 20 lunchers and 3 dogs assembled at cafe Tributo for a very nice coffee before setting off under clearing skies : no rain forecast. Alfie liked the puddles: Image00001.jpg Before a few hills.... Image00002.jpg and a pause for breath at the top.... Image00003.jpg Image00005.jpg Zac though...

Weather update......it's very misty here, but forecast looks good for the morning in Silves, so walk is definitely ON.....wouldn't be too surprised at the odd drizzle, so some rainwear might be prudent.....at least the recent rain will have consolidated the scree!

Good news....plenty of space by the Tributo Cafe nearby .Old hands may recall it as a cafe t...

Polishing Stone floors

Our interior stone floors are showing signs of wear with scratches and marks. Anyone know if it's possible to buff them up and perhaps remove some of the scratches?

Re: Walk Monday 18 November 2019 : Odelouca. CLOSED

We were blessed with Geoff weather...blue skies, sun shining slight breeze. 22 walkers and Alfie made the starting line, which is more than my camera did, so many thanks to Linda for the photos....and getting them to open early for coffee...and for organising lunch.

Re: Walk Monday 4 November 2019 : Western Funcho. CLOSED

The dreaded lurgi caused a number of late cancellations, but 15 walkers and 4 dogs made the start line...in Val's case, only just! We welcomed Don from Canada and George and Aileen as newcomers. It was a bit cloudy , but good walking weather, though the Funcho was rather low: Image00002.jpg Image000...

Unfortunately, Claire has developed a sore stomach during the night and will be unable to attend today's walk. Apologies.
Oh dear...there must be a bug around....Jon & Dawn, Graeme & Marian are also out with the bug.....coming on your own or nursing?
