Helsinki

We made a trip to Helsinki last fall.  We were there the second week in October. It was chilly, but the fall colors were nice.  Here are some of my pictures.

Helsinki-2012 234

This was the doorway to our hotel. It looked like a castle on the outside.

 

Helsinki-2012 024

Here's a picture of boats in the harbor. These boats are backed up to the wharf and are selling things from the back. They had fresh fish, pickled fish, other foods in jars and knitted items.

It's hard to see, but this is a boat.

Helsinki-boats 010

This is another boat. You can see the cabin and a crane.

 Helsinki-2012boats

And here is another one.

Helsinki-2012 smoking

Smoking fish right on the sidewalk.

Helsinki-cruise ships

You can see both of the big cruise ships that come over every day from Stockholm, I think.

Helsink-iembassies

One day I walked around the neighborhood where the embassies are.  These are two of them, but I don't remember which ones they are. No photos were allowed of the American Embassy. It was under construction anyway, so not very picturesque at the time.

 

There are more pictures on this web page.  Helsinki 

 

Okay, that's it.  It's only taken me 3 1/2 months. It's been a busy 3 1/2 months. It seems like more.

Nice boat picture--looks like a jigsaw puzzle.

These photos, and the ones link on the other page, are breathtaking. I am definitely going to add Helsinki to my bucket list!
