Day 5: Petäjävesi Old Church

>> Wednesday, July 08, 2015

Last year, we visited the wooden church at Petäjävesi and as Anna's folks didn't visit, and wanted to, we decided to return there today. From here, it's about 40 minutes away and it was easy to get to as the road was quiet - aren't almost all roads here in Finland?

I did manage to capture this butterfly in the damp conditions.
With the weather misbehaving again for the second day, it was the only real thing we did, although we had our obligatory sauna and swimming session in the lake this evening, in pouring rain! Looking ahead at the weather for the next seven days, I think it's going to be challenging to keep up producing decent photos each day, but I'll do my best! We have certainly been very lucky over the past few years with amazing sunny and hot weather that has often been settled for the entire period of our stays and beyond, but this next week isn't looking much good at all. Still, if the sun shines, I will definitely make sure I get as many decent photos as possible.

Tomorrow's forecast shows sunny periods and thunderstorms, so let's see what happens...

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!
