What a GREAT last weekend trip we had to Savonlinna! We have loved going there for our visits. The Saints are so wonderful. BUT....we can say that about everywhere we have traveled in this great country of FINLAND!! We truly hope we can come back some day. Another mission here?? We would love that. We will have to see what the Lord wants us to do.
We had a FOTO OP with 'Flat Stanley' by the castle before leaving town. I think 'he' enjoyed his little visit there.....although it was COLD and WINDY and SNOWY! But...this is Finland and it IS still winter afterall.
Another shot of that gorgeous CASTLE!!
OH MY.....we actually ate in this RESTAURANT last summer or fall when we were in Savonlinna last!! OUCH....this can not be good for business!! Poor folks!
While Barbara Michie and I were doing a little last minute 'shopping' on our way out of town, Wayne and Kent decided to walk around downtown and take some pictures. They came across this nice man walking his dog and struck up a conversation with him. They talked about the Mormon Church in town....they are great missionaries! The DOG was so friendly.....and he proved how friendly he really was by leaving a bunch of SLOBBER on both of their coats! YUCK......they had fun though.
Love this SCULPTURE in the roundabout as we drove through Mikkeli on the way home. We will miss these neat sculptures everywhere!!
Beautiful ice on the rocks as we drove home.
We got back to Espoo as the sun was setting.....GORGEOUS SUNSET AS USUAL!!
And as I was taking the sunset picture out our window guess who was coming home from Lidl's!! Yup.....Veli ja Sisar Zaretskja. They are so good.
Looking forward to a wonderful week with TAMPERE here!
