Puotila Beach, 11:23


Breakfast done, I have one for a lengthy walk. The temperature has dropped without anyone informing me and so I find myself with no cardigan between my t-shirt and my jacket. My walking achieves a high speed quite quickly.

I walk down past Plantagen to the beach and then turn right. To my surprise the beach café seems closed. I thought it opened all year round. Failing to find the image that I had in mind I keep walking.

Three hundred metres further on towards Vuosaari I walk past a pointless jetty. It seems to start nowhere in particular and finish about a couple of metres further on. I stop to look at it. I realise two things. Firstly, the bullrushes hide it in summer. Secondly, I do not understand its purpose, if it actually has one.

I will walk on, puzzled, and then turn right up the hill to Puotila Kartano.
