I received my first adopted postcard back in the mail last week. It was adopted by Alma in Florida!

I love manatees, they are so huge but they are gentle. They just want to eat seaweed and mind their own adorable business. Neither Alma nor I have seen a manatee up close, but Alma did recount a story of seeing a water moccasin (a deadly snake) up close! Eeek! I’d much rather see a manatee.

A few days later I got this other card from Alma, from a Postcrossing meet-up in Tampa. I haven’t been to a postcard meeting yet, it sounds like fun!

This painting is called Daphnis and Chloe, presumably after the Greek story about these two lovers. It’s pretty appropriate for this week before Valentine’s Day!
