Postcards

I thought you might enjoy some postcards from San Diego. I have always enjoyed sending them to family and friends whenever on holiday, a tradition I remember my family had when I was a little girl. My Mum always found some time for us girls to sit down and write to our grandmothers, even on a day trip to Aberystwyth in Wales, where the highlight for us was to be able to have donkey rides on the beach.

I have continued the tradition and not only enjoy sending postcards but also collecting them. I picked these up on our last vacation in September 2010.

  1. We live about 155 miles north of San Diego. I do have friends who live down there, but we have not been down there for over 40 years. I love the lighthouse postcards.

  5. Very nice postcards, I love old lighthouses. A friend of ours many years ago lived and managed a lighthouse. I have some very old ones that I have collected over the years. Thank you for coming by, have a nice week, we are very cold here.

    I like your new header - it is new, isn't it? Or haven't I been paying attention???

  10. I don't send postcards any more but I do pick them up from time to time. Basically they are better photographs from better vantage points than what I can do myself.

  11. I love postcards! :)

    We take day trips to Aberystwyth too. Sometimes we'll head on down to Aberaeron or across to Borth & Machynlleth while we're at it.
