It's about the midsummer time up here! It means the days are long and nights are light. It also means a long weekend as this is a National Holiday in Finland. It also means traffic jams on mainroads because everyone is escaping from cities to countryside. That's our plan all the same. I'll hop on a car with the kitten soon, drive to pick H up from his work and head towards lakeland. We'll stop to say hi to his parents tonight and keep on driving to my parents' summer cottage tomorrow. It'll be a bliss and I wont be complaining even though I know there will be tons of mosquitos, bugs and bees. I just want to go to sauna and take a swim in a lake. And enjoy the silence.
In case you are wondering what are these pictures on this post, I took them last summer on a tiny island here in Southern Finland. Maybe we get a chance to make a summer holiday in the archipelago again.
So I'm already wishing a lovely weekend to all of you. It feels like a weekend already, don't you think?
