6 Jun 2011 – Last Walk of the Season

We are having a group lunch in Jalon to celebrate our last walk before the summer break.   So Pat suggested a short walk from Jalon to Alcalali to get some fresh air before the meal.   There are 13 for the lunch, but only nine of us for the walk.   Nice to have John along for the walk.
Pat had suggested a short walk, because it is often too hot to walk at this time of year.   However this year is an exception, and the summer has not yet arrived.   The sky was cloudy, which meant it was very comfortable walking.

 I missed the joke – but it makes a good photograph
Mike, who led the walk, took a call half way around.   He insisted that he was not lost and calling a friend.  We were not so sure.
Pat was not sure we were going the right way, and pointed out Alcalali to make her point.
Margret was waiting for us when we got back to Jalon.   She hurt her back on holiday, and was not able to walk today.   Despite being in a lot of pain she insisted on joining us for lunch.   Just as well, no one else knew where we were eating.  We were joined by Heinz, Barry and Gwen who had all missed the walk.
The meal was at the private home of a German couple, who cater for parties of up to 16.  Both the meal and the company were excellent, and as we were the only ones there we could really relax and enjoy it.

Jan insisted I add this one, as it the only photo taken today to include me.

Next Week
As the weather was so reasonable today, Pat has suggested that we meet again next week.   We will meet at Javea Port at 1000 for another short walk.  This one will be up to the lighthouse and then along to the shaded picnic site for lunch.  If it is very hot we will then visit the windmills and return to the port.   If not too hot we will walk to the tower overlooking Denia .
