A stunning cover from USA!

Many thanks to fellow CCCC member, Wei-Tsu Tseng for sending this stunning cover from USA! The 2 beautiful lighthouses stamps featured on this cover belong to the Gulf Coast Lighthouses stamp series. On 23 July 2009, the U.S. Postal Service honored 5 lighthouses situated in the Gulf Coast that withstood the fury of devastating hurricanes such as Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Wilma, Hurricane Rita and Hurricane Carla.

These lighthouses are located at Biloxi, Mississippi; Matagorda Island, Texas; Sabine Pass, Louisiana; Sand Island, Alabama; and Fort Jefferson, Florida.

The third stamp franked on the cover is from the the "American Design" definitive series, issued from 2002-2007.
This cover was postmarked on 11 Sept 2009 in Fishkill, New York and took 6 days to reach me, which is the norm for a mail to travel from USA to Singapore.
