Technical Hitch

Due to my husband deciding to change the operating system on our computer yesterday, I am currently unable to scan and upload any postcards I receive. If you have sent me a postcard, please bear with me, I will get them onto the blog as soon as possible :)

Postcard 54 - Netherlands - mirjamjanet

A lovely atmospheric picture of a church tower with the flag of Friesland in front. Apparently buildings used to be constructed on artificial mounds because the sea would often flood the land there.

Postcard 52 - Finland - moisianu

The picture on this card put me in mind of the famous tale of Grace Darling, the lighthousekeeper's daughter, who in 1838, at the age of just 22, helped her father to rescue 9 sailors from a shipwreck in a terrible storm. If you don't know the story just enter her name into a search engine and you will see why she was considered a true heroine :)

The picture is actually 'At Sea' by the famous Finnish artist Albert Edelfelt.
