After sleeping well, Smurf had porridge for breakfast and finally drank tea with croissant:
And then he went sightseeing.
Beautiful doors of lifts:
Memorial to the dead of the Winter and Continuation wars.
The memorial depicts mother carrying her dead son.
Fountain in a square:
One more monument on the square:
It’s called Birds of Passage. It depicts people who had to leave their homes abroad for a long time after war.
It’s only 208 km to St. Petersburg (Pietari in Finnish):
Water Tower, and the old one is hidden inside this new tower:
Pedestrian and cycle path to Imatra: It’s only 36 km away.
Yet Smurf decided to put off ride to Imatra and went into Veteran park. There are many flowers:
Smurf thought about swimming in Saimaa lake…
Yet he concluded the water was too cold.
Here’s the long-awaited lunch:
After lunch, he headed to the historical fortress. Smurf steered the gun and flew out of it:
I caught a bird who had just caught its dinner.
If I had specially hunted to shoot the bird with its dinner, I’d surely have failed.
Lilac almost shed its blossom, however it’s still beautiful! Two bushes interlace in this place: lilac and white.
View from the hill to the fountain and the water tower:
From a nearby hill, the tower of our hotel Scandic Patria can been seen:
However, before returning to the hotel, it’s necessary to a supermarket to buy some food for dinner 🙂
Weekend flew by too fast…
