USA ~Orca Whales~

Cards nr. 24 and 25 for my whale collection arrived today! And they are both so beautiful.... The sender wrote that she last summer was sitting on the beach and when she looked up about 50 yards off the shore where two pod of Orcas... They just looked like this photo....And it was amazing.... For me such nice stories making the cards even more special... And I must admit I'm also a bit jealous! ^-^
And from Holland a lovely multiview with really old stamps, dating from "the Gulden" or Guilder (That was the currency of the Netherlands from the 17th century until 2002 when it was replaced by the euro.) They can still be used...
