Bonne Bay, Canada

My last card for today comes thanks to Glenn, who actually sent me two cards, since the first one decided to take a look around the world first and then arrive to my mailbox...but eventually both of them arrived and both are lighthouses, and both are great, so it was a bit tricky, which one to post today....and this is actually the second card...you will see the other one, sooner or later...

This is the Woody Point lighthouse, in Bonne Bay, Newfoundland, and in the background is actually Gros Morne, so this card actually shows Gros Morne as seen from Woody Point.

So this is where my dilemma arose...Gros Morne is a National Park AND is a UNESCO whs...so should i label this card as UNESCO, or no....the infinite dilemma my cards can impose...

The Woody Point Lighthouse stands along the waterfront in the historic town of Woody Point in Newfoundland Labrador and in the background you can see sections of Gros Morne National Park. After a fire tore through the town of Woody Point in 1922, many of the historic buildings were destroyed except for a handful of them. The lighthouse was built in 1919 and it was one that was saved from destruction.

Its a really lovely lighthouse...and UNESCO goes to the labels ;-)

thanks Glenn!

Ana, Sorry for causing the dilemma with Bonne Bay, but I'm sure you made the right decision, re UNesco. Also thanks for your comments on Hell. I guess I'll just have to try and get a card from Hell, Norway, too.Cheers, Glenn

I have seen many of the lighthouses in the Canadian Maritime Provinces (though not this one), and almost all of them are designed this way. Yet, one can drive a few miles and cross into the New England States of the USA, and none of the lighthouses will look like this one.
