We went to the Västerby area again. It is a one hour drive from Turku, but the area is nice and very familiar for me, since I grew up in the vicinity. We started walking a little after six in the afternoon, a little less than three hours before sunset. It rained a little for the first hour and the ground was wet. The younger boy had forgotten to take his rubber boots and it didn't take long before his feet were all wet.
The distance to cover wasn't very long, but the kids have other interests than covering a lot of ground. This time it was billberries...
... and blueberries. The blueberries were tasty and big.
A little more walking...
... and we arrive at a suitable camp spot close to a shelter and fire place. I didn't find a suitable tent spot exactly where I thought, since the Golite Shangri-La 5 has a pretty big footprint. Next order of business was to put up the tent.
Interestingly enough, there were very few mosquitoes until sunset. After that they came out in big numbers, exactly like during an overnighter in August a year ago.
The evening was very nice.
While I was out doing some photography, the kids consumed some literature.
The next morning was misty.
PS. About half of the pictures are stills from video, which might not be visible after a quick look. A closer look quickly reveals it, though.
