Independence Day

I celebrated Finland's Independence Day today by running around Seurasaari island.

Crushed ice on the beach.
It was a balmy +1˚C day with some rain/snow falling from the sky.

The lakes on the island were covered with ice.
I spotted lots of birds, including a swan couple.

The sea and shore is still mostly ice-free.
There were some slippery places with ice, but not too many.

A swan couple feeding themselves in the sea.
I even saw the President passing by in a motorcade towards his nearby home.

The archipelago looks pretty nice even in winter.
My feet were wet when I returned home, but it sure was a nice outdoors training session!
