I arrived in Heksinki to snow and 0 degrees…and a freezing winter wind. This didn’t stop me heading out for a late afternoon walk.
This morning saw blue sky, but the wind persisted and it was cold. Snow makes a pretty addition to rooftops and monuments.
A large pile of snow in front of the cathedral proved to be a great playground.
I didn’t think there would be any takers for the new outdoor pool in the harbour…
…but I was wrong. I saw some enthusiastic swimmers bobbing along in the water.
I enjoyed some hearty blueberry porridge for breakfast at El Fant and delicious salmon for dinner at Kappeli.
I saw some interesting shop windows.
Farewell Heksinki until next time. That will be February when I’m sure there will be even more snow.
And no leaves on the trees.
