Pechão is a Portuguese parish (freguesia) in the municipality of Olhão, it’s about 9 km from us and we drive through it every time we go for groceries in Olhão. Today, on the way home from our early morning jaunt to pick up fresh bread at our favourite bakery, I noticed a sign indicating a caminhada and we decided to head home, do a few things in preparation for tonight’s dinner then Joanne and I would head back and explore.
Another wonderful find, close to home, country and village routes and in total, just over 10 km in a loop. Doesn’t get better than that.
And speaking of gates
The walk was very rural at times and in a couple of places we weren’t entirely convinced we were still on the correct path but as always, stay with it and eventually another marker will appear. It adds to the adventure to think you might be lost from time to time.
A another wonderful one for our future repertoire. There will never be enough hikes!
And as I close, last night I roasted a pan of quail for dinner….we thought it was worthy of “honorable mention”!! I know when I asked to prepare it again, it’s a hit.
