P is for Postcard

Wish you were here!


I love writing and receiving postcards. There’s a lot of small steps involved in sending them: buying the postcard, buying the stamp (international ones if abroad), making sure you have your recipient’s correct mailing address, actually sitting down to write the note on the postcard, and then finally finding a mailbox to ship it off. But in the end, totally worth it! And more efficient if done in a batch, of course.

This week, we’re looking at a few pictures that I think would make for great postcards. Just imagine I’d mailed each of these to you, via snail mail.

October 2017. Cafe Hafa (Tangier, Morocco)

We took the ferry from Tarifa, Spain to Tangier, Morocco for the day. Cafe Hafa is a popular tourist destination, they serve Moroccan mint tea and have this amazing terraced view of the water. I mean, just look at the incredible blue water! This is such a picture-perfect view, wish you were here to enjoy it!

December 2018. South Mountain Park (Phoenix, AZ)

My nuclear family took an end-of-the-year trip to Scottsdale/Phoenix. We went for a short, “easy” hike one day (one of us, who won’t be publicly shamed got grumpy about how “easy” the trail actually was, but that’s a separate story). It was great to be outdoors in such temperate weather, and I loved this view with the saguaro cactuses in scattered about the foreground with the mountain range in the background. Wish you were here, and wish we all had actually enjoyed the hike.

August 2020. Tuolumne Meadows (Yosemite, CA)

This past summer, I made it to Yosemite for a weekend with mom. After we checked out the Tufa at Mono Lake, we made it in to Yosemite itself and hiked to Tuolumne Meadows. On the way back, we spotted this dome (I think it’s Lembert Dome), and I really like how the tree line frames the view of the dome, making this postcard-worthy view. Wish you were here!

Thanks for reading, see you next time!
