The sea is full of surprises. Two weeks ago on a sunny Sunday we decided to enjoy the good weather and head to Suomenlinna, my beloved fortress islands. With a group of friends we admired the sparkling sea during the ferry ride to the islands. Suddenly while enjoying delicious lunch at Valimo, the sun disappeared as an intense wall of fog swallowed the whole fortress little by little, bite by bite. But the fog made the islands look mystic and magical – hiding some parts and discovering others.
We stayed on the islands whole day, and so did the fog too. We had good coffee and delicious cake together at the lovely terrace of Samovarbar, the Suomenlinna Toy Museum‘s café. We played together at the playground. And the fog accompanied us all the way back to the market square where the sun had been waiting all day. At Suomenlinna jacket was needed the whole day, but still in the evening at home, when I looked to the mirror I saw a red face looking at me.
