Burnt Cove, Canada

One more card from Glenn sent earlier this year...well actually, arrived earlier this was sent just on the last December day :)

The card shows a beautiful scenery in Burnt Cove, which is a community in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador, located on the Avalon Peninsula south of St. John's and north of Ferryland. The community's population in 1996 was 196.

One can just feel the crisp air by looking at this card...and with such a small population, seems like a great place to retreat to when you want to recharge....

As for 'cove', the Merriam-Webster defines it nicely as 'a small sheltered inlet or bay'.

Glenn used three great stamps on this card...issued in 2015 in a set of six stamps representing Great Canadian Ice Hockey Goalies - here you can see Martin Brodeur (top left), Tony Esposito (top right), and Ken Dryden (bottom stamp).

Another thank you to Glenn today :)
