Meow's Postcard Exchange

Back in early April, 2006, I put out a post on my main blog, asking if anyone wanted to join a Postcard Exchange ... this is still open. If you would like to join this exchange, just email me with your snail-mail address, and I will send you mine by return email, and there we go !!! Complete discretion is guaranteed ... your postal addresses will remain private and confidential, as (I hope) mine will to you. This blog is to display all the wonderful postcards I have received.

Yay, Blogger finally let me post these postcards ...

I received these wonderful postcards from Greeneyes a couple of days ago, as part of a little package. They are so beautiful.

This first one shows a variety of pictures from Newfoundland & Labrador ... what an amazing place.

This one shows a Bull Moose ... those antlers are incredible !

This one shows some colourful Puffins, who are inhabitants of Newfoundland. What interesting looking birds ... wish we had them here !!


This one shows an iceberg at Salt Harbour. Now, I'm wondering if it is like this all year around ... or are the icebergs only Winter things (don't laugh, I don't know this part of the world !!) What a spectacular photo !



This photo is also of icebergs. The blurb on the back of the card states ... "Although icebergs appear gigantic from shore, 7/8 of them remain below the water. Formed of pure ice, their white appearance is due to many tiny air bubbles reflecting white light."



This one says ... "Gros Morne National Park with its fiords, mountains, and spectacular ocean scenery is one of the most exciting areas in Newfoundland and in fact, all of North America."



"Cape Bonavista Lighthouse was first visited by Europeans in 1497, and the surrounding lands were claimed by John Cabot for King Henry VII of England five years after Columbus discovered the West Indies."



"The spectacular coastal scenery and rugged shores of Cape St. Mary's have been immortalised in Otto Kelland's popular Newfoundland folk songs "Let me fish off Cape St. Mary's."


I've gotta say, Greeneyes, you live in the most spectacular part of the world. I can't get over the rugged beauty of the area. It is just amazing. Thank you so much for all these wonderful cards.
