Thank you to you too scrute. I too will be interested as it will go from Melbourne to Perth, to Albany & back to Perth.

I sent something to an unnamed post office to protect the guilty on October 9 & they received it on December 1. :shock:

Unfortunately Dr Waffle has excused himself from the Board at the moment. The front of the card is the actual card he received but the postmark came via Mr Puffin.

BigSaint's postcard written and posted to Albany on the 2nd and postmarked on the 21st, arrived today (the 27th).

A very nice strike of the Albany CDS which was low enough to be completely missed by the machine cancel which is faint and illegible, anyway.

The postcard takes me back to 1985 when I lived and worked for six months in Albany. Dog Rock looked exactly like the postcard. I can't imagine it still does. The "collar" was painted onto the rock to make it more visible to traffic. It is on a fairly busy road.

Thank you very much to BigSaint and Ubobo.

Today my Renmark postcard, nicely date-stamped, was waiting for me when I cleared my P.O. Box. :D
Thank you Brad = BigSaint :D


• Not-so-good news
The Wallsend Library, and the other branches of the Newcastle Library System, are closed for the holidays, until 2 Jan 2024.
Well, that's good news for the staff of the libraries — they work hard, and deserve a well-earned holiday break until the current public holidays are over.
But it was bad news for me today, because I couldn't access the Wallsend Library scanner to take an image of the card to e-mail to myself so I could show it in this thread. Now we'll have to wait patiently for that until next week :o

It was delightful — perfect weather, excellent scenery, a relaxed pace, good company, good programme.
