I haven't had the chance to have a proper summer vacation yet, so me and the bf decided to do a little road trip. First we took my parent to the airport and at the same time visited the Finnish fortress in Helsinki. The fortress was originally built in the 18th century for defence purposes, but nowadays the island is mostly an attraction to tourists and is inhabited by ca. 850 people.
There are boats going to the island frequently and it takes 15-20 minutes to sail. It was a super windy day, not very cold, except for the sea wind.
There are a few caves and tunnels left for tourists to explore and a great view to the sea, but some of the structures are closed from tourists because of safety reasons. Besides the ruins, the village is a lovely place to walk around and why not sit for a pic nic in the park. The old houses are so adorable. It would be a lovely place to live in if it wasn't o busy with tourists.
|Now there's a house I would like to live in!|
I had sewn this 30's-40's inspired dress the previous day. I foud this lovely fabric on sale at fabric.com. I've been spending a little too much time sewing for myself instead of doing actual work, ahem.
