view of Helsinki from Suomenlinna

When we got up in the morning and the sun was shining :) After a quick shower and breakfast we went outside to enjoy our last day in Finland. We wanted to see the fortress so we walked to the other side of the island. When we were there we saw a large grey cloud approaching us :( And soon after that it started to rain, we decided to walk back because there wasn't a place where we could stay dry. And the whole sky was grey by now.

By going from shelter to shelter, we came at the visitor centre, we stayed there for a while.  When we went outside, it was dry and the sun was starting to shine again! We where told that the apple pie at the toy museum was very good so we walked to the museum. But it wasn't open yet, so we first did some shopping at the small supermarket and then walked back to the museum. Where we had the very nice apple pie :)

After the apple pie we went for a new try to see the fortress and now the weather was only getting better. We enjoyed a really nice morning around the fortress with a clear blue sky and sun. Around 14.00 we took the boat back to Helsinki, we had lunch and then took the bus to the airport to fly back home.
