The Gardens of Hampton Court Palace.

Europe-United Kingdom-London  This is my second card from my visit to Hampton Court Palace in November. The day I was here , it rained all day, so I did not get to see this beautiful garden in all its glory. 

I have only noticed now that in fact there is a date on this stamp. Below the face of the postmark- 14 Nov 16. Postmarks in general in the UK are rarely clear or in many cases no postmark at all. So that is why I sent this for special postmarking at the Post office .

London - Hampton Court Palace

Europe-United Kingdom-London  Hampton Palace was the main summer residence of the King of England , Henry the Eight. I had visited many years ago as a child and wanted to go back and visit. It was certainly well worth the visit. Here is a overview of Hampton Court Palace. 

I posted this card in my usual Post office stop , near trafalgar square. On this occasion I asked for a handstamp and this is the postmark I received. I am not keen on this as there is no date and the card arrived in a plastic see through envelope.

Africa-Namibia-Ehosha  For many years I have wanted to visit Etosha . So at long last  I made it. It sure lived up to my expectations. Lots of animals from Lions to Giraffe's . I will publish some of those photos shortly. 

There was a small post office in Ehosha . So delighted to find this and a special postmark as well. They had some extra stamps as well for sale. So well done to the Post Office in Namibia .
