Some More Postcards!

by Kayla Trail

Because I have was gone most of the summer, I was not able to send as many postcards through Postcrossing as I would have liked. But here are some of my favorites I received while I was away and since I’ve returned.

I particularly like these ones for their bright, fun colors. Who doesn’t love a close up of a pink rubber ducky? This gal sure does!

Boats, boats, boats! On my profile I say I’ll love any cards sent to me but ones featuring ships would be greatly appreciated. About 1/3 of the cards I get feature boats in one way or another which makes me extremely excited, especially from places with rich maritime histories.

This card was sent to me from China and I had one of those “small world” moments. She took a trip to San Diego and visited the Maritime Museum there, where she bought this postcard of the Star of India. The crazy thing is, I work at the San Francisco Maritime Park on the Star of India‘s sister ship, the Balclutha, who sailed temporarily under the name Star of Alaska. It still blows my mind a little bit.

And then there’s some miscellaneous ones that I think are pretty or… interesting.

That’s all for now! Take care and be good to each other.
