Suuri Seikkailu ja elämä nyt!

Hyppäsimme käsi kädessä! Olemme saanet aitoutta, pysähtymistä, heräämistä, hetkeä. Nyt elämme hirsiä ja pellavarivettä, banaanilaatikoita, teinejä ja taaperoa, koiranneniä ja lampaita, kaartelevia merikotkia ja huikaisevaa halua merelle.




Pretty Beach & Picnics

Time flies and especially spring this year! Our May begins every year with the little Finnish speaking school of our archipelago, Ulkosaariston koulu, that bakes the popular 1st of May buns and makes "sima", the old viking drink - this year over 200 litres. Pupils and parents get together to prepare everything early in the morning at the school kitchen. Everything is sold to eagerly waiting islanders.

Buns were baked of eight kilograms of wheat flour. The principal of the school had been making the dought since 5 o'clock. Some rolled the buns, others baked, the rest dipped them in sugar and some hands were needed to pack them. 

We had decided to have a picnic at the beach and at the same time clean everything extra that the waves had brought there, especially plastic.  The beach of our village became really pretty but the weather drove us inside with our picnic basket.

The first thing we noticed back at home was that our sheep, the seven girls that hadn't been invited to our picnic, had decided to have a picnic of their own, but where? The search patrulls were sent out to find them. We ran, cycled, drove but nowhere to find them. Then  came a phone call: - Are there some "girls" that you are missing? Yes! 
Over one kilometre had they wandered and found a beach of their own - or actually a beach of one of the summer cottages. They followed us and the bag of dried bread home, had probably forgotten their picnic basket home...
