I have just created my new blog showing post cards with views of Lighthouses from around the world that I have received through postcrossing, private swops and what I have purchased my self during my travel around the world. You can view my new blog LIGHTHOUSES ON POST CARDS on www.lighthousesonpostcards.blogspot.com. Enjoy and I look forward to your visits and comments.

Unfortunately this is a good example of how the post office can destroy a stamp with a bad machine cancellation. Friends please try and get the post office to use a hand cancellation where ever possible. I know it can be dificult at times. Thanks for your understanding.
Received through Postcrossing (DE 461351) from Wilhelm Janssen who lives in Germany. Thank you very much. Norderney Lighthouse is featured on this stamp which was issued on 02.07.2009. Wilhelm was kind enough to send this postcard where on the reverse the Lighthouse of Pilsum is featured.
