Thank you very much Eli

Despite the confinement Eli had the nice idea to send me these 2 series of Israel devoted to Archeology and its treasures

The letter was sent by Eli on March 16, he mentions it, but it was not canceled

I'm sorry but I can't insert the photos via Imgur this time

We currently receive very little mail in France and it is a very nice surprise

Thank you very much Eli

Thanks for updating, Eli, and thanks to Gods that have started to repair postal communications :lol:

I have been beginning to think this letter was lost in the depths of the virus vagaries. Glad it finally reached you. Then, there's hope for other letters, too, both from and to Belarus :)

Big shout out to AMark for this wonderful PC from Nouvelle in eastern Quebec, Canada, on the south shore of the Gaspé Peninsula at the mouth of the Nouvelle River. :D

The pictorial postmark shows a fossilized fish from Parc national de Miguasha, Nouvelle. Miguasha National Park is considered to hold the world's greatest palaeontological record of fossils from the Devonian Period, known as the 'Age of Fishes'. Five of the six main fossil fish groups from this period (dating from 370 million years ago) can be found here. The park was designated a World Heritage Site in 1999.

Look what Monday delivered! Another PC with pictorial postmark from AMark!

Thank you sir! I hope you got the last postcard with the new Sumo stamp I sent your way.

Pictorial postmark from Fox Valley, Saskatchewan, located ~64 km north of Maple Creek and 51 km south of Leader in the southwest region of the Saskatchewan province.

PC-3.jpg

BONUS Healthcare Workers slogan cancel!!!

PC-2.jpg

The PC (below) depicts the Athabasca Sand Dunes in Saskatchewan province, the most northerly active sand dunes in the world!
More than 9,000 years ago, as legend has it, a giant in Canada followed the shore of Lake Athabasca, hunting giant beaver. The animals had built a dam on one side of the lake, and the giant had come to destroy it. In doing so, he came across just the right beaver to take home and attempted to spear it. In the throes of its demise, the beaver thrashed and pounded its giant tail all around, pummeling the surrounding soil into fine sand.

And, that’s how the Athabasca Sand Dunes were created, according to the local Denesuline (also known as Chipewyan) tribe lore.

This one arrived courtesy of our host here, Terry "The Puffin" & Maggie Mailbox's first birthday giveaway:
Waikoa Island FDC 2020 - Maggie Mailbox B.jpg
Not sure how the 3 T Lettter Waikoa Island Maggie Mailbox stamp was postmarked Golden Beach.
No doubt there is a story there.

On the reverse some little Munchkin stickers. However no sign of Egglebert Humperplant. :lol:
