Hartland, New Brunswick

Hartland is a town in New Brunswick that sits on the east shore of the St John River at one end of the Hartland covered bridge: the longest covered bridge in the World. This cover has a perfectly applied postmark and it's paired with a stamp showing the same bridge. But it's ruined by an unnecessary pen scribble over the stamp.

TAAF, Martin-de-Viviès via Marion Dufresne

As predicted, the third and final cover to come back from the Marion Dufresne. This time from Martin de Viviès on St Paul Island.

Scott Base, Ross Dependency

A post on the Antarctica New Zealand Facebook page implies the first Scott Base summer crew reached the base on the 16th of September. It didn't take long for this cover to make the round trip. I only sent it down there at the beginning of September.


There is effort underway to redesign Scott Base over the next few years. Very early stages. They don't have a design or contractor yet. But the plan is to replace all existing buildings with three interconnecting buildings.
