    You'll have to do a bit more uphill walking than that if you want to come out with us next year :sneaky:

    Snap!!this picture was taken in January 2004 DSCN0121.JPG

    My filing system is so good that I know when it was taken but can't remember where the h**l it is. My memory is that the main road passes close by and a rough area, please enlighten me.:)

    Thank you and BTW perhaps approximate rather than rough would have been a better choice of word in my previous post :)

    The toll starts just after the first slip road for Castro Marim so you either stop in the laybye just over the bridge and register or carry on and come off for Castro Marim and then go into Vila Real De Santos and onto the 125
