In the end of summer comes the melancholy, I try not to count the days but to look back the endless weeks at home with the whole family around me. It is though there and it is to seize the day. So I suggested a Korpo Runt, a boat-tour around our main island. So when all the summer-workering children had returned home we lifted the anchor!
When turning north from our village harbour you are in the Korpoström route that is an ancient passage and a place for battles between old royal Swedish and Russian fleet. Now the west side of Korppoo is popular among boat-people and surrounded by summer villas and cottage.

We got some more diesel in Korpoström - and ice-creams to continue north-west corner.

East of Korppoo is Nauvo, Nagu in Swedish. The yellow ferry works night and day taking cars and people over the waterway. In the Nauvo side it is also the home pier of Eivor, the bigger red and white ferry that drives the route to bigger island south from Korppoo. And it is free for people on foot! What a way to see the archipelago!
