Summer Holiday Part IV

After the wedding we enjoyed two days of Finish summer mainly by the lakeside and the Keuruu local ice cream shop. We were really lucky with the weather which was sunny, warm and with just a light breeze to keep the sweat off our foreheads.

Summer night in Keuruu.

We did do a little recreational training, I did a little open-lake swimming and Anja did a couple of good runs. The area is known for great cross country skiing during winter, and during summer you can walk/run on the marked slopes and paths. Its tough terrain, but excellent training.

Tuesday we travelled to Helsinki and spent two days seing the sights and shops of the capital. The biggest tourist attraction is the Sveaborg fortress, which was definitely worth the visit.

Sveaborg consists of four Islands connected by bridges, originated from the middle of 17th century.

Tomorrow - the fifth and last part of our holiday sequel.
