Deliver

This is a picture of N., our postie, delivering today.

I realised he was behind me so pulled up to take a photo. It was a rather long lens so the house in the background looks much nearer than it really is.





And continuing on the same theme. Up here Royal Mail, Parcel Force and the Post Office are all integrated so everything arrives at the Post Office in the village in a big van







It then heads north to the far end of the island and comes back in the early afternoon to collect the outgoing post.

In this picture the big van is in the background on the way to deliver to the rest of the island and the posties are gathering in their little vans to sort the post and then deliver it.






The turn around time is so quick that it isn't usually possible to reply to a letter the day it arrives; thank goodness for e-mail and fax machines.

I went 'Oh big vaaaa - OH LOOK! There is an identical car to mine parked beside it...!'
I tried to take those photos yesterday and every time I thought I had got something set up a non-local car came and got in the way..... I wanted to get a combined Deliver(y) and Collect(ion) at the Co-op as it has a small post box, which is emptied when they get their mail, but a coach arrived at just the wrong time. Sigh.
Your big van is way more impressive than our little ones *g*
Does your postie know he's famous? *g*
