Midsummer night.

We made yesterday our traditional Midsummer Night drive to see the sunset and the sunrise on the west coast.

We started at seven o´clock in the evening. At first we needed gasoline for the car.

The sky was full of heavy clouds, but we wished the wind will blow them away while driving to the west coast. The temperature was only +13°C/ 55°F.

At half past eight we arrived to Krookka guest harbour in Merikarvia by the Bothnian Sea.

Every Midsummer Eve we have seen this “pirate” sailing there.

When arriving at ten o`clock to the Fish harbour of Kasala, the evening sun painted everything with its colours.

There is a tower for  watching the sea and birds. We were almost alone, only one car was there.

We continued our trip to Kiili, in the town of Kristiinankaupunki, a very famous place to watch the sunset at Midsummer night. We were there about eleven o`clock.

It is midnight.

 

 

 

Keskiyö
The sun has gone behind the horizon. The darkest moment of the night.

After seeing the sunset we started the trip back home.

 

Auringonnousu
At two o´clock the sun was raising. The temperature was only +3°C/ +36°F and fog was also raising.

We arrived at home about four o´clock.  We hope we will have our permanent home by the sea as soon as possible.
