Walk 3 was the Most Exhilarating - Who Agrees?

Walk 3 was the Most Exhilarating - Who Agrees?

Monday, 14. October 2013 - 18:30

We all started together from the pretty town of Benahavis - a long line of walkers and their dogs on the lake-side path. Walks 1 and 2 went on their way but Walk 3 crossed to the far side of the lake and started uphill, past a large gate and into the shade of a pine forest where we bumped into 2 beautiful, wild horses. We progressed in an increasingly spread-out line along the path, getting higher and higher and pausing only to take photos of the magnificent view down over the lake and across to the distant peaks of La Concha. The path grew steep and rocky and we panted in the heat of the midday sun as we climbed up to the pylon at the top of the mountain above Benahavis, where we paused to gulp down some water.

We walked along past a pool fed by clear, spring water, where the dogs splashed happily, then slipped and scrambled down shale and powdered earth gradually descending until, at last, after about 2.5 hours we reached a steep road that led us into the top of Benahavis. At the restaurant we were greeted with, well deserved, drinks and a delicious lunch. 

We all want to thank our 3 wonderful guides who had explored the routes of our 3 Walks over the previous weeks and our sponsors for their generous support of our Rotary Club in its work for various charities.
