Stepping out with U3A


Stepping out with U3A

Yet another relatively busy week for some of the many Torrevieja U3A sections. On Mar 16th the Easywalkers section had 33 of its members, plus leaders, taking an enjoyable walk of about 8km duration along the coastal pathways around the beaches of Campoamor and the surrounding area before eventually reaching the oasis of a welcome bar for a well-earned refreshment break.

By contrast, a small team from the Walking group carried out a reconnoitre of the area leading up to the crosses overlooking Orihuela city. What seemed like a fairly straightforward walk proved to be a far more difficult climb than anyone had anticipated, and as the muscles of a couple of the members were still testifying to a couple of days later!!

Nevertheless they all made it to the top and enjoyed the marvellous views that were visible from up there. Somehow I do not think this particular event will be on the general itinerary of the group anytime in the near future!!

For the less adventurous fellows of the U3A, about 74 members of the monthly lunch club gathered at the Portico Mar restaurant near Guardamar where they were all served a tasty 3 course Menu del Dia which included wine and coffee afterwards, served up by friendly, helpful waiting staff all dressed in traditional German garb.

The meal appeared to have been enjoyed by all attendees and they are no doubt looking forward expectantly to the next one!.
