Thomas Hardy Landscape of Dorset Map Postcard

After my ship postcards, it is time to show and discuss my map postcards. First is my "Thomas Hardy Landscape of Dorset" map postcard. Dorset is very special to me. Blandford Forum became my second home for a month when I visited a friend and I have visited most of the places on the postcard.
