25 May 2015 – Javea to Portitxol

We had a good turn out for our last walk before the summer break, possibly encouraged by an invitation to Wendy’s house for an end of season BBQ.
This is a lovely walk, as well as being our regular start and end of season walk.   The first part is a nice level walk along the beach.
However this is followed by a steep climb, without the benefit of a path or track.
After the climb there is a welcome spot to take a well deserved rest............
..............and watch the locals at play
When we reach the headland there is a picnic area, where Ken and Moira have a rest and a chat
We often do an extension down to Sardine Bay, with its views back to Javea.  Not to mention the steep climb back up to the headland
We took some photos as a reminder of the walk, with Pat and Peter appearing to be saying a fond farewell.  In fact it was their reaction to someone suggesting that they not stand too close together for the photo.
As we reached the end of the headland we had a short break for a banana stop........
........and to take in the beautiful view back to Javea with Montgo behind
Peter appeared to want to find some peace and quiet to watch the boats 
And finally we reached Portitxol beach, which was unusually quiet for such a lovely day
Then it was time for the BBQ which John and Wendy had kindly prepared.    Lots of good food, good drink and good company - plus a toast to absent friends
We also played a knock out football competition, which proved to be very loud and great fun

The next walk will be a repeat of today’s Javea to Portitxol.   Same place, same time.   Meet at 10am.  

Thanks to everyone for another enjoyable walking season.   We are looking forward to more good walking after the summer break.
