A Canadian card from the US

NOT my country postcard swap!
Sent to me from the US
with a pretty view on the Canadian Rockies

Established in 1885,Banff National Park was the first national park
created in Canada. Back then, its main purpose was to help pay for 
the recently- built railway across the country. In 1984, Banff and the 
other mountain parks were declared UNESCO WHS.

Lego on postcards!

You may or may not know that I love Lego
so when I saw these postcards about Lego, with my favorite colors,
I couldn't resist

an envelope made from the USPS stamp catalogue!

And now, drum roll please!

Happy mail

I received this lovely letter today,
it included a late birthday gift!
(But that is for another post.)

This seems to be a card "Discovery toys consultants" sent
to possible customers. The copyright on the back reads 1987.
Love it! 

"A view of Savannah looking towards the 
Savannah River and the
Talmadge Memorial Bridge"

 "The Bob Graham Sunshine Skyway Bridge is 
a cable-stayed bridge spanning over the 1200 foot (about 366 meters)
shipping channel of Tampa Bay, with a total length 
of 21 877 feet (about 6 668 meters). The bridge is considered the "flag bridge" of Florida"

My pen-friend put lots of great stamps on her letter!

And last but not least, a postcard from the UK!
A view on Fleetwood

The town's most prominent feature is the Mount, a 7-acre (2.8 ha) park facing the sea-front, laid out by Decimus Burton, and built on a large sand dune originally known as Tup's Hill. It is surmounted by a pavilion built in 1902 incorporating a clock added in 1919.
