I would love to be in Helsinki for a lovely cold Christmas. I’m not sure if snow has fallen yet, this year has been quite warm I think.

Anyway, here is a photo I took when there was snow on the stone men at the railway station.

Have a very Merry Christmas wherever you are.

Winter days are wonderful when the sun shines. There was still snow on my February walk around Toolonlahti. I’m sure it would all be gone now as Helsinki moves into warmer weather. Toolonlahti     Toolonlahti Toolonlahti Toolonlahti Toolonlahti Toolonlahti Keep on shining Helsinki.
