For most Finns the summer is now as good as over. July is the holiday month and now kids are going back to school and adults to work. But we still have our summer holidays to look forward to, and in just a few days we’ll begin our first longer journey on our own sailboat.
The last days we have been doing boat projects and have turned some of them pretty exotic without leaving the home port. Costs have been higher than anticipated, everything has taken more time than anticipated, and some lessons have been learned the hard way. Maybe we really are sailors now, because this is what everyone keeps telling it’s all about!
Here’s our newest crew member. I’m hoping our holiday photos will turn out better from now on.
