Örskär Fyr, Sweden

Another great card from Merja, she says:

"This lighthouse is called the Örskär Fyr in the archipelago a little bit North of Stockholm. The first lighthouse on this place was built in 1687. This one however is much younger, built in 1740. Half of this island is a nature reservation area & there's a youth hostel beside the lighthouse."

The youth hostel sounds like a great place to stay!

Thank you for the card, Merja, and thank you for the nice stamps that reached the UK without being cancelled. :)
