Day 12: Eventually sunny

>> Wednesday, July 15, 2015

Gorgeous reflections in the lake tonight.
After a stunning sunset last night, we had high hopes of a sunny day today, but it was annoyingly cloudy and cool once again this morning, as it has been several times this past week. I had slept better than the night before but had already decided I'd have an easy day relaxing and resting my leg, and so I lazed around the house in the morning, with Anna as well as Olivia and Sandy deciding they'd head up to the wee zoo a mile up the road after an early lunch.
Liv and Sandy off on the boat.
Relaxing on the jetty.
Keith wanted to swim, so I set up the sauna for him and supervised as he swam and enjoyed the heat. I ventured into the sauna too, for a couple of quick sweat-building sessions, as Gabi had advised yesterday that heat wouldn't harm the leg, though I avoided the lake and simply sat on the jetty watching Keith continue his swimming routines for yet another day. By the time Anna and the others were home, the sun was shining so we enjoyed it during the late afternoon and early evening. Sandy and Olivia also took the rowing boat out a couple of times today and explored our end of the lake.
Another on the jetty.
Beautiful evening sunlight once again.
Reflections were amazing tonight.
Below, the wee house that Olga and Arnold slept in last week next to the main house. 
Tomorrow, we plan to head into town to do a bit of shopping in the morning, assuming the weather follows its recent pattern of cloudiness then sunshine later in the day. We'll also try the pizza place we have enjoyed large, tasty pizzas over the past three years once we get hungry for lunch!

Silja Line - Sweden to Finland

Silja Line - Sweden to Finland
A fantastic way to arrive in Finland is by using the Tallink Silja service from Stockholm in Sweden. These are magnificent boats which take you overnight into Helsinki's centre, and to travel by car with a good quality sea-view cabin is relatively inexpensive. Buffet dinners are outstanding!

Viking Line - Sweden to Finland

Viking Line - Sweden to Finland
An inexpensive way to arrive in Finland is to take the Viking Line ferry service from Stockholm to Helsinki. This overnight service gives the opportunity to sleep in a spacious cabin, taking your car, and arriving the next morning in central Helsinki. This service operates at the same time as the Silja Line service each day.

Finnlines - Germany to Finland

Finnlines - Germany to Finland
On several occasions over the past few years, we have used the excellent FinnLines ferry service from Travemunde in Germany, to sail right up the Baltic Sea to Helsinki. It's an expensive option, but it is a truly memorable journey on what are very modern and extremely comfortable boats. Highly recommended!
