More July Cards

Hey there, what's happening ? My last update was Tuesday, today is Sunday, so I guess it's time for another . Let's start with this card from Aribe. This is a very small village in the Navarre region in the Pyrenees Mountains of northern Spain. Small indeed, with a population of just 42. From the picture on the front of the card, it looks like a great place to just relax and get away from everything and anything.


Josep & Assumpta sent this card along. They have a great postcard blog called " cartes i postals d'arreu " or " Letters and Postcards from all over " in English. You can check it out right here . Their stamp choices include , on the left - a Simonia Perez designed stamp and on the right - 1 of 4 in the Classic Cars set- this one a Volkswagen Beetle.

Up next is this fine Cat card from Kenya. It's from the Olare Mara Kempinski Masai Mara , a luxury safari lodge in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy.

Bruce used 2 stamps along with a rather nice Kenya Airways Air Mail sticker.  The left stamp is from 2001, 1 of a set of 12 stamps showing Crops - in this case Peanuts. The stamp on the right was issued this year, 1 of 4 in a set of Northern White Rhinoceros. A beautiful set.

Now for 2 cards for New Caledonia. Both are from David - from his recent trip in June.
The first one is from La Foa, a commune in the South Province of New Caledonia, an overseas territory of France in the Pacific Ocean. David's card shows the local view and a few of the sights.

The stamp here is from 2014 and celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the House of Fighters.

Now  the 2nd card : Palm trees, white sand and clear blue waters. Just the way I remember New Caledonia. The card pictures a beach area on Ouvea, a commune on one of the Loyalty Islands in the archipelago of New Caledonia. David posted this one in Fayaoue, the commune's settlement and administrative centre.

This card's stamp is from 2018 , 1 of 2 in an architecture set.

I do like the great circular cancellations here and the wonderful socked-on-the-nose.

The End - There it is , another one in the books. Thanks for today's cards go out to David, Bruce and Josep & Assumpta..
Great cards folks .

See you readers again soon.
