FRANCE ~Côte D'Opale~

...I'm lucky to have so many great "postcardpals" who think of me during their travels and holidays... and sent me lots of wonderful postcards...Today I got again two really nice views from France, towns just over the Belgian border!!Nogmals Héééél erg Bedankt Johan.:D
Hondschoote lies on the French side of the Franco-Belgian border, just inland from the North Sea.

With nice stamp!This 2011 stamp shows Henri Mouhot, a French naturalist and explorer (mid-19thC) who brought world attention to Angkor, shown in the background.
Ghyvelde (Dutch: Gijvelde) is a commune in the Nord department in northern France. It is located at the North Sea and at the Belgian border. It is, apart from Bray-Dunes, the most northern commune of France between sea and polder.

The coast of The Pas de Calais in Northern France is known as the Côte d'Opale and the entire Department is known for startling contrasts. From the charming valleys of the Course and Canche, to the Opal coast and to the natural beauty of Cap Griz Nez and the chic town of Le Touquet. This part of France, a mere twenty something miles from England.
