Water and Coast
In 2000, Royal Mail issued a series of stamps called the Millennium Projects. There were 12 series in all, one issued each month with 4 stamps in each, and each series commemorating a project that had been funded by the Millennium Fund. These are the corresponding PHQ (Postal Head Quarters) postcards.
The Water and Coast series was released in March and for the "water" part of that series they commemorated the redevelopment of Portsmouth Harbour and the National Pondlife Centre at Liverpool John Moores University.
The "coast" part is sufficiently related to water for me to include them here even though the illustrations are not:
They commemorate the Durham Heritage Coast in the north east of England, and the Millennium Coastal Park at Llanelli in Wales.
You can see the full set of images used at the site of Studio David Hillman.
