Hailuoto for Midsummer

As has become something of a tradition for my family, we headed across to the island of Hailuoto to mark Midsummer. While it was the sunniest day we've had for a little while, it wasn't the warmest weather we've ever known. We did brave the sea, the girls and I, for a swim but the… Continue reading Hailuoto for Midsummer

Winter Fun ~ Jo Jackson Photography

Last weekend we went to the Winter Village (Talvikylä) at Nallikari with the girls. It was so much fun! Reindeer, huskies, snowmobiles, snowboarding, just about every kind of sledging you can imagine and campfires perfect for cooking sausages over.
