Island fortress

Anni took us on a little ferry excursion to Suomenlinna (Sveaborg, på Svenska). It was interesting to be doing a common summer tourist activity on a cold and blowy winter late-afternoon, kind of stark and quiet, pretty much just us and the locals. We walked around a little loop and took some dramatic photos and tried to keep our mittens on as much as possible. Now I want to go back during summer picnic season and see the museums and an open-air theater production. Though I’d miss getting to watch the icy sea from the ferry.
