Many Lighthouses

I received two cards in the mail today
and both are lighthouses.
I couldn't be more pleased!

This is a lighthouse card I received today.
It is from an official Postcrossing card from Michelle.
She read my profile and knew I liked lighthouses.
There are ten of them on this card.
The two in the upper left corner are the old and new Cape Romain lighthouses.
The 'skeleton' lighthouse next to them is Old Hilton Head Light,
and above it is Bloody Point, Daufuskie Island, So. Carolina.
From the lower left, are Haig Point, Daufuskie Island;
the red & white stiped Hilton Head;
Sullivan's Island; Hunting Island;
North Island; and another red & white striped Morris Island.
I would like to see these lighthouses 'in person' too, as we have
seen the ones on the Outer Banks of No. Carolina but
none in So. Carolina.
Thank you, Michelle, for the great lighthouse card!

This stamp brought me Gina's card.
It is a 2004 Athens Olympics stamp
showing two swimmers, one of them wearing a
Bahamian cap.
I received this card today from Gina
in Nassau, The Bahamas.
It is a private swap.
The cross on the card marks the place where Christopher
Columbus landed in San Salvador, Bahamas.
The picture in the upper right shows a recreation of an Arawak
Indian Village.
On the lower left is the San Salvador Museum and the lower right
shows the Dixon lighthouse.
Thank you, Gina, for this beautiful card for my collection.
I would really love to see the lighthouse 'in person'!
