Monthly Fav. Surprise RR - August '21

Cards from the Netherlands, Germany, Belarus and USA.
Jessica took some time to check my mills collection and sent me a new one from the Netherlands. 
Strijkmolen K is located in Rustenburg, in the province of North-Holland. It was built in 1627. Is not longer operating. 

In 2018 Marei sent me a different view of this church in Bavaria for the MFS RR - October. Same church, different season.

Two churches, one card from Vitsebsk, Tatyana's hometown. 
The white church is the Annunciation Church, one of the oldest buildings in Belarus. It was constructed in the 1140s as a pagan church, rebuilt in the 14th and 17th centuries as Roman Catholic Church, repaired in 1883 and destroyed by the Communist administration in 1961. The church was in ruins until 1992, when it was restored to its presumed original appearance. - in: wikipedia
On the left side there's the Alexander Nevsky Church. The beautiful wooden church was originally built in 1992 as a temporary temple. Years have passed and the church is no longer a temporary temple, is now one of the city's attractions.

Marshall Point Lighthouse stands on a rocky point at the end of the St. George peninsula in Maine. The lighthouse aids navigation along the Gulf of Maine coast and marks the entrance to the mouth of the St. George River and the harbor located in the fishing village of Port Clyde.
The lighthouse property includes the light tower, accessible via a walkway, the lovingly restored 1880’s Keeper’s House, summer kitchen, recently reconstructed late 19th century barn and the original oil house.
Housed within the keeper’s house and summer kitchen is a museum featuring exhibits which highlight not only the history of the lighthouse but explore the industries and history of the peninsula. A well-stocked research room allows visitors to view photographs and documents pertaining to the area’s history.
The lighthouse has featured in many commercial photo shoots and in the movie Forest Gump featuring Tom Hanks, whose character concluded his cross-country run on the runway of Marshall Point Lighthouse. In the museum, visitors will find documentation on the filming of the movie. - in:
