Porvoo to the east, Hanko to the west

Hanko's beach, accessible directly from the city centre
 Jana and Alex visited me as well, in September. Time to do some things on the weekend. We hit the road on Saturday, heading west to Hankoo with its rugged coastline. I think it can be considered as a recreation area, but the high season was already over, I guess. With water temperatures of 17 °C or so, I have to admit, you cannot spent hours swimming. Hard enough to jump in! ... Sunday, another day, another direction - going east to Porvoo. Small village, not much to do, just to see the old wooden houses from former ages. And a few hundred Chinese tourists running through the cobbled stone streets. We finished off the weekend with some self-made blueberry muffins.
