Vormsi, Estonia

This beautiful lighthouse is in Vormsi, Estonia. I love this view and the beach. It looks so inviting to take a nice stroll along the water's edge enjoying the fresh air and nature.

Here is a little bit of information from the back of the card. The lighthouse is located on Vormsi Island. The height from the bottom is 24 m and the light altitude is 27 m.
The cast iron tower (1871), prefabricated in Lithuania, replaced a tower manufactured in England in 1864.

I received this beautiful card for the April RR. Thank you Janek for this lovely card!

Love the lighthouse stamps and they also show the location on the map. Beautiful and informative at the same time!
