February Alternative RR (IV)

And that's it, all the 20 February Alternative RR cards are here. These last 5 are from Ukraine, Australia, France, Liechtenstein and Belarus.

Olga "olenenka" from Ukraine sent me this card showing the Demirji Yayla, which is a plateau of the Crimean Mountains.
The Crimean Mountains is a range of mountains running parallel to the south-east coast of Crimea, Ukraine, between about five and eight miles (13 km) from the sea. Toward the west, the mountains drop steeply to the Black Sea, and to the east, they change slowly into a steppe landscape. - in: wikipedia

Another australian lighthouse, the Split Lighthouse, located in Aireys Inlet, a small town on the Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Australia.
Nicknamed "The White Lady" Split point Lighthouse was built in 1891 on what was originally called Eagles Nest Point. The rock of the coastline which can be viewed from this point is still called Eagle Rock. It opens up for viewing inside only 1 day of the year and is said to be haunted by those who operated its light to the sea which was converted to 4 automatic flashes every 20 seconds in 1919. - in:

Another lighthouse, this one from France. The Cap Gris Nez Lighthouse is located in Cap Gris Nez, a cape on the Côte d'Opale in the Pas-de-Calais département in northern France.

It was built in 1837 and destroyed during the Second World War in 1944. The lighthouse as we see it today, was rebuilt in 1958.

Grace "azzurri" from Switzerland sent me the Vaduz Castle in Liechtenstein, the residence of the ruling Price.

And this is the last card of this RR. I also had this one and the 1st card isn't unwritten!! Anyway, getting double cards is not something that happens that often.

The Mir Castle is a UNESCO World Heritage site in Belarus located in the town of Mir. The card was sent by Lena "skliu".
