Today was our second full day in Finland. We are still in Helsinki. Today is my 48th birthday, and Finland is a great place to be spending it.
Today we went to the UNESCO site - Suomenlinna island. We were able to walk from our hotel to the boat we needed to take to get to the island. The boat ride was short, but a nice ride to see some of the small islands off the coast of Finland. We walked the whole island which used to be a Naval base and a place where Helsinki would greet visitors. There is a toy museum on the island that was on Finley's list and it was a small museum of old fashioned toys.
We left the island early afternoon and headed back to the hotel. It poured rain all afternoon so we relaxed because we were still adjusting to the time change.
In the evening Mat, Finley and I went back out and rode a large ferris wheel that was near the water's edge, and then went to a local restaurant for dinner. Great day
