Celebrating Big Sur


Speaking of stamps, as I was a couple of days ago, this is a first day cover of one of my all time favorite U.S. postage stamps – the California Statehood Sesquicentennial commemorative issued at Sacramento on Sept. 8, 2000.

It celebrates the beauty of the Big Sur coast south of Monterey along the most glorious road I’ve ever ridden in my more than 300,000 motorcycle miles.

I bought several sheets of this stamp and still have most of a sheet left. I’d forgotten all about having the first day cover until I discovered it while rooting through boxes in the garage this morning.
