Galveston Island, Texas, USA

Last but not least, a beautiful postcard from O’Neal.

It’s showing a cargo ship and pelicans at sunset. Wow, the sun looks huge. :D

Galveston Island is a barrier island on the Texas Gulf coast in the United States, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) southeast of Houston. The entire island, with the exception of Jamaica Beach, is within the city limits of the City of Galveston.

The island is about 27 miles (43 kilometers) long and no more than 3 miles (5 kilometers) wide at its widest point. The island is oriented generally northeast-southwest, with the Gulf of Mexico on the east and south, West Bay on the west, and Galveston Bay on the north.

Thanks O’Neal, your postcards make me want to visit every single one of those places. :D And thanks for picking such awesome stamps!!! :D

Texas, USA

My dear pal Hilarie sent me this AWESOME postcard after her trip to Texas.

I’ve seen postcards like this before and I always thought they were really cool, but until today I have never received any like that. So YAY for that!!! The back side is also really interesting, with small pictures of horses and cowboys and cattle – but I won’t post it here as it’s fully written. :)

San Antonio, TX


This is the official Postcrossing card (US-828767) that I found in my mailbox today. It shows the Riverwalk in San Antonio, Texas. The description says: “Sparkling lights strung throughout the spectacular Riverwalk brings out the charm, romantic aroma and the festive spirit that is shared during the holiday season in San Antonio.

And you wouldn’t believe how awesome the sender’s handwriting is! :)
