Friends, who I met walking the CP in 2016, have sent me photographs from Casa Fernanda where we all had such a wonderful time back then. They are walking the CP again and stayed with Fernanda last night, in their email they said that there had been a gas explosion in Fernanda's kitchen (I don't know when) and that it had caused her a wrist broken and one of her dogs had its leg broken. It seems all is well again judging by the photos they attached of Fernanda preparing food and smiling as usual.

Thanks for the news. It too bad this happened but it is also good to hear that they are well and that she is still smiling.

So sad, I remember Fernanda and her place so well. What wonderful people. Happy to hear no one was seriously injured.

Don't forget to book at Casa Fernanada early. She has become quite the star of, and a popular stop on the Camino Portuguese after Porto.

I would not miss it. Even if I am not planning to stay with her, I always stop in for coffee and home baked bread....yummmy!

Fernanda is a Camino Angel!

My sister and I stayed at Casa of Fernanda, Jacinto, and Mariana last Tuesday (16 Oct). Fernanda’s wrist was in a cast but it didn’t appear to affect her bountiful energy or spirit. A Camino angel in multiple forms, who passes it down the way. My own small story was that in the morning I left my documents (credential and passport) sitting on a table in her outdoor living room. A mile or two later I realized my mistake and started back. The first couple I met were carrying them and made me jump for joy; they were angels for me that day. I will welcome the chance to pay it forward!
