Felix from Taiwan sent me the cover and 3 lighthouse postcards. Unfortunally I do not know the names of the lighthouses, but they are nice addition to my lighthouse postcards collection. Does anyone know the names and places?
Nan sent me nice cover from USA and inside of the cover were 5 new lighthouse postcards
3 postcards show the same lighthouse, but all views are so different. My favourite is in the middle.I like the autumn colours and the wooden path. About the lighthouse - it is located on Fire Island. The building is built 1858, was restored and relit in 1986. The biggest efforts were made by the Fire Island Lighthouse Preservation Society, which now operates it.
Great place to visit!
Wonderful postcard, the light and moon and ship. Really beautiful! Orient Point lighthouse is located at the most easterly tip of Ling Island on the North Fork. Also known as the Coffee Pot, the Oirent Point Lighthouse was completed in 1899. The lighthouse stands 64 feet and marks the hazardous waters of Plumb Gut.
Boston lighthouse is located on Little Brewster Island.This was the first lightstation established on the North American continent, and the last in the United States to be automated. Wow!
Thank you Nan!

The Dragon is an auspicioius, mythical crature incarnated as an emperor, representing supreme power and commanding great respect. It is belived that people born in the Year of the Dragon are confident, courageous and clever.
These four stamps on cover depict the Dragon in various forms - a fire dragon spiked with glowing joss sticks (1.40), glittering statue of a golden dragon (2.40), a spirited dragon performing the traditional dragon dance (3) and a lifelike dragon engraved on a stone wall (5).

On 4 October 2011, Thai Post issued a set of 4 stamps and an exclusive miniature sheet to commemorate International Letter Writing week. The stamps feature Cartoon characters of kids in various actions that show the travelling of letter. And Nina was so nice and sent me cover with these wonderful stamps.
The cover is remarkable because of the special postmarks of Mae Hong Son.
