  1. Hello (^ ^)
    It is also good to forget the daily hustle and bustle in a quiet place on the lake side. I think that the future will be the most season here.

  12. It’s even peaceful and calming just to have a look at your set of photos, Matti. I have to confess, I presently need and therefore would love to be at such a quiet place as we recently had some upsetting moments. The situation is better now but as you mentioned in your text at the beginning, even rather noisy surroundings may have an exhausting effect.
    Hamburg, as a large city, is a loud place but – of course – somehow one can get used to it. Presently, however, we additionally have to suffer from some maintenance work at the Hamburg airport. For some weeks they closed one of the runways. For all takeoffs (and sometimes landings, too) they therefore have to use a second one which leads in another direction. All these large aircrafts are now permanently crossing our district (and home) – starting in the early morning and stopping only around 10 (11) p.a. …*sigh*.

    I enjoyed having this short break by the lake! ^^ Thanks a lot for showing! – Michèle

    • Hello Michèle.

      Thank You. I am glad that the situation is now better. Airplane noise is hard. I have not lived on those areas, but Anja yes, in her childhood and later before our marriage. We had some plane noise when we lived on countryside, but not so often. Man gets used to different sounds. In the 70s, I lived by the street on which trams passed all the time, but maybe after month, I did not “hear” them. Same kind of situation is now in Oulu. Trains goes very near to our vacation home, which we will sell this summer. We do not hear them, because we are used to the momentary noise.

      Happy weekend and all the best. Matti

      Thank You. Yes, air is clean and fresh there, no pollution. I love small places, which are situated by the lake. Cruising on a lake is fantastic experience and especially in midsummer, when sun never sets or is not visible few minutes. Then nights are not black but as bright as days. It is awesome.

      Thank You. I am glad that You loved my post. Yes, it freezes in winter. Because Anttola is quite near to Mikkeli, where we lived few years ago, it was natural to walk on a frozen lake. If You do not have any idea how it looks, then here is my old post:

  26. Dear Matti, thank you for sharing these lovely pictures! Unfortunately, after programming and making reservations, the trip to Northcape has to be canceled. The mom of my friend Danilo is very ill and she needs to get surgery on her back. Danilo is much too concerned about his mother and couldn’t take the risk to travel away for two weeks. I’m very sad, we supposed to leave today. But we’are looking forward to another trip-planning as soon his mother will recover…
