SAILING AROUND ISLANDS


Cloudy sky and rain far-away. As we depart from the dock, a few raindrops caress. Two rainbows and the sunshine arrives. 


Birch trees everywhere, bowing towards the mainland. Wind is low, but the sails take us further for a while.


The fortress is in its summer dress. (And in its winter dress.)


There, far-away in the horizon, a ferry and the lighthouse Harmajan majakka. Rain and sun. The patchwork quilt of the waves, the sound of them.


The beautiful wooden sailing boat, starting to understand how wonderfully human beings have learnt to use the wind, to built and to sew the sails. To navigate. Sailing dreams came true.


At home, bicycle trips around curvy forest roads. Lupine meadows.


Lakes that are patched with yellow water-lilies and reflections from the forests and sky. A moment of mist.

Have a calm Midsummer with a little bit of magic and dreams, small expeditions!

    1. Heippa Kati,

      Tämä kesä on ollut jotenkin sellainen kuin lapsena. Enää puuttuu kesäkeitto, mutta eiköhän se korjaannu loppuviikosta Savon sydämillä, mansikkamaalla.

      Mukavaa jos viihdyit ja kiitos lämmittävästä viestistäsi!
