Porkkalanniemi Reach

Last weekend brought a warm summer breeze, and what better way to enjoy the cheery easterly wind and the sun than on the sea. So off we went for an overnighter, to explore islands and islets around Porkkala peninsula, all the way past Träskö, one of the first national parks in Finland (established, but later abolished, back in 1938). This early in the season, boat traffic around the peninsula is minimal (but ramping up fast once the summer kicks in), so we could have not chosen a better timing for the tour, mostly paddling in solitude.
