Visited on of Helsinki’s most popular tourist attractions today. It has been years since I was here. The place has history Suomenlinna (Finnish; until 1918 Viapori), or Sveaborg , literal translation in Finnish is Castle of Finland inhabited sea fortress built on six islands and which now forms part of the city of Helsinki. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site and also it as a picturesque picnic site. Originally named Sveaborg. The Swedish crown commenced the construction of the fortress in 1748 as protection against the Russian expansionism. This particular day it was packed with locals as well as tourist as the day was just lovely. Here is some background on the place.
Caseys Beach in Batehaven, beautiful.
love the beaches…
My feet are killing me. We have used the tram, ferry, underground and a taxi and walked around the city. All photos with the mobile phone.
I love how the light touches the waves of different shades of blues, making the glitter brightly under the dark intense clouds above.
I’ve been home for a week, trying to recover from the time difference. Catching up with work and all the normal stuff at home. I am trying to go through my photos, all 2035 + of them. This photo has all the elements I enjoy, sea, sand, clouds and sun.
I sat on one of these rocks for a long time watching the waves hit the rocks. Meditating to me. Then I started taking photos of it…these are from Boynton Beach, FL.
Imagine a historic Italian estate in a spectacular subtropical setting and you’ll begin to imagine Vizcaya! Built as the private winter home of American businessman James Deering in the early 1900s. Sneak peek of this gorgeous place.
Key Biscayne lighthouse
Bahia Honda Bridge
The beauty of the sea, clouds and sand. It does not matter if it’s not sunny I am at the beach anyway.
Such great contrast with the colors.
Sea view as I continue with my monthly theme, but photos from previous winters.
