Tuesday, 23 November - A moderate walk with ups and downs through remote countryside, about 2.5 hours.

10.00 am start – meet at the cafe Terinho. Drive into Silves over the bridge and go right. At the next roundabout take the 2nd exit towards the ‘Castelo’ and after passing the cemetery on the right take the next road right (passes alongside the cemetery) then the road bears round to the right and you now follow it for about 6 km – the cafe is on the left - please do not park directly in front of the cafe!

Friday, 26 November- Let's Walk on the Ridge, Messines Baixo
A fantastic walk up onto the ridge with the most amazing views over the countryside. Moderately easy, only one gentle climb!
10.00 am start - meet at the 'Paragem' cafe in Messines Baixo. The village is on the Messines to Alte road (EN 124) and the cafe is at the far end of the village on the right, direction towards Alte & Salir, (ignore all the cars they are from the garage next door)!

There is no need to book, please just come along wearing suitable walking shoes (you walk at your own risk). There is a nominal charge of 5 euro p.p. this includes a donation to the Salvation Army Xmas appeal. Julie 965 753 033.
