The Beginning of Summer and Our New House


The beginning of summer is finally here even though it is already mid-summers!  Time seems to have whizzed by lately as we have moved into our new home in Aurinkolahti.  We feel really lucky to have found a house which is so close to a nice beach and a nature area.  It is just absolutely fantastic.  Lately I have been toying around on my road race bike as well.  Feels pretty funny after such a long time.  Between climbing, playing kayak polo and applying for new jobs it seems that we are finally getting close to settling in at the new place.  This weekend we head to the summer cottage for mid-summers.  We hope it will be a good one!  I have included a picture story of the past few weeks below.  The first pictures are the area around our new house and the second part is our short trip to the summer cottage.
