Last Stop on the Cruise!

Whew, sorry, summer is my busy time and I have been enjoying the pool and the bbq!
But, I have to post our last stop for you...Helsinki, Finland!

We chose the excursion: Helsinki from land and sea. 4 hours, 99.00.
We took a bus ride to a little harbor, from there we boarded a boat and cruised along the shores. It was still rainy and cold but it was beautiful. We cruised by the Ice Breakers, these ships are given the highest regard as they keep the town alive during the winters, food and goods can be transported because these big guys keep the waterways open all winter. They are the heroes of Helsinki!

After the boat cruise, we drove all through town and enjoyed the scenery, our final stop was an outdoor market, we could have sampled food and bought goods.

The meat is actually Reindeer meat, yep, they eat Rudolph in Finland.

What a marvelous time we had, so many things we saw and experienced.
I can't wait for our next adventure! Where will we be? Where we will go?
