... Great card nr 2 from the series "Unseen Sri Lanka" with matching stamp... this beautiful pearl-shaped island located in the Indian Ocean offers such a high diversity in nature... a view so totally different from the lush green tea plantations that I received recently... Thanks a lot Ravindra!! (✿ ♥‿♥)
Pooneryn is located in the North Eastern part of the country. These sand dunes can be seen after travelling towards Kawtharimunai from Poonerin in the Poonerin Peninsula.
It is a belt of low sandy terrain which extends from Pooneryn town on the mainland
northwestward in the Pooneryn peninsula. As a result of the tidal currents and the
small waves and wavelets combined with the dry windy southwest monsoon, this
particular feature has been gradually developed. The sand is carried by the winds from
southwest towards the lagoon side of the peninsula.
