Greece II

Postcard of Elafonisi Island, Greek for "Deer Island". The island is a protected nature reserve that can be reached from the neighbouring island of Crete by wading through shallow water when tides and weather cooperate.

Many thanks to Iustin, who's working in Crete for the summer. – Doesn't seem like too shabby a place to spend the summer! :-) 

Information about Greek stamps is hard to come by; both of these stamps were issued last year, the one on the left inviting you to visit Greece, and the one one the left inviting you to plant a garden, it would seem.

After years and years and years with a single Greece card in my collection, it's funny to get two within days of each other! When it rains, it pours. :-)
