I love going to places where you can see seals basking. I remember one island in the Orkneys off Northern Scotland where there were literally several hundred on rocks. Another time, in Cornwall, I spent half an hour looking down on a tiny remote cove in Cornwall where a seal was playing. Here is an 1880 Newfoundland stamp showing the common seal. SG 47.

#BlueWhale, my non-traditional #maxicard sent back to me from Antarctica (USAF McMurdo Station). I have sent a franked "postcard" (a page from a book) in an envelope, asking to send me the blue whale "card" as a circulated postcard/maxicard.

Craig, I admire your Topical pages and am considering doing something similar for my own topical collections ...
I wonder, do you just make your pages in the order you come across your topical sets? There doesn't really seem to be any rhyme or reason to the ordering ... That seems like a reasonable approach to me since otherwise you get bogged down with half empty pages and you don't have to start over when you leave out that one stamps or set (I, at least, would HAVE to do that ..).
