If you wan´t to stay at Strandhagen and don´t have a car, you can do as Anna from Germany did, walk from Porvoo. The first 15 kilometers there is a nice trail through the forrest, the rest 4 kilometers you can walk along the road admiring beautiful countryside. Slow travelling like this is good for your body and soul.
This year we Finns have been blessed with a wonderful weather during Christmas. The snow came the last days before Christmas and the days after the sun has been shining and the snowy nature during the short day has been absolutely wonderful, not to mention the sunsets.
During winter we serve breakfast only to the birds, hares, deers and these nice guys. They usually have breakfast at the same time as we during holidays. Afterwards on their way to the forrest for the day, they often come closer to the house to thank for the meal.
Today we walked to the neighbour village to see some relatives and their animals. On the way our Hilda was happy running over the fields and I was happy of the pretty red colours in the nature as the rowans have lots of berries this year. This is said to be a sign of a very cold winter coming, brrrrrr, but let´s enjpy a long beautiful autumn first.
