PHOTO GALLERY:
FINLAND : Bennas, Larsmo and Jakobstad
June 2003


Page Description

Here is a set of 40 photos (LARSMO-11 to LARSMO-50) taken from the peaceful village of Larsmo. Malin and her parents bought a new Summer cottage in Larsmo after selling the previous one in Nabba. The summer cottage is an ideal place where one can go and relax in a place full of nature and peace, and hopefully some warm sun too. The summer cottage actually consists of an small area of forest by the sea where there are 2 wooden cottages - the main cottage and the sauna cottage. It is very common the people around here will spend many days during summer in these type of cottages rather than staying at home.

Here are some more photos from Kopmanholmen, and miscellaneous photos taken in Larsmo

After we walked around the island, I and Malin decided to have a coffee launch at the restaurant. It was here that this man just sat around the table with us and started to chat. I was a bit afraid at first thinking badly that he might want something from us, but then it turned out that he was a partially drunk melancholic but very funny and friendly sailor who was just on vacation and came with his boat to this island. He was finish and knew about Malta and Valletta.

These were some cute kids playing on the beach just before climbing the canoe to go back to the summer cottage

This was a piece of open land full of grass. It was a very nice place. I asked Malin to start to film me with the videocamera here, while I walked around near a rock where there were some nice purple flowers. After, instead of going back near Malin to continue walking, I called her to come near me so that we would rest a bit in this peaceful place on the rock covered with a soft cushion of grass like material!

As you may imagined, the short rest ended up into about one hour nap in the warm sun and singing of birds. Malin was really sleeping in the photo while I was acting a bit here. I applied some graphic effects to make it look like it was a dream - since it was a palce of dreams here

This was a sandy beach about 2km away from the Summer cottage. It was quite nice and inviting for a swim, but still I prefer the beaches of Malta, warmer and more clear blue/green water.

This photo is taken from a nearby harbour used mainly by those who want to hire a boat and go to the island of Kopmanholmen more or less 1km away.

A very important piece of equipment in cottages at Finland - a fire Furnace. It was very effective to heat the room and keep it warm for several hours especially during the cold night. In early June the temp was about 12-16C and so the furnace was used to make the room 20-22C. In late June, the temp rose to the 20s and that was perfect.

This was a strange ship which passed occasionally in the sea. I am sure it had a special task, like cleaning the water or maybe fishing but I do not actually know is its real purpose.
