Lost Lost Purse - Redondela to Pontevedra

I seem to have lost my black purse including bank cards & cash on the Camino.

I arrived in ponteverda without the purse. So assume it was left in Casa da Herba, at Pontesampaio (cafe a romana) or fell out en route somehow?

All help appreciated. Name is Anna Rutherford.

I'm really sorry for you, Anna. Please let us know if you were able to recover it. This is such a heart sinking feeling.

Amazing news! Some kind souls handed it to the police station in Redondela & our wonderful host (Morc) in Pontevedra tracked it down & brought it to us today in Caldas de Reis. A small miracle & a testament to some very kind people here! Thanks everyone for their good wishes. xx

Fantastic now find a more secure way to carry cash and cards and make sure you have them in more than one place. I have zipped internal pockets plus a money belt

oh dear, Anna: right now am offering a bribe to St Anthony...
Kirkie, you don’t have to bribe St. Anthony (but it looks like it worked), you can just say a prayer to him. It goes like this:
St. Anthony, Please come around,
Something is lost and needs to be found.

It works every time for me. I’ve used it so many times.

I carry a crossbody purse on the Camino which never leaves my body except when I'm in the shower - it goes into a waterproof bag into the shower stall with me, and when I'm sleeping, when it's in my sleep sack. When I get up to use the toilet in the middle of the night I take it with me.
