Views of Nature

Above a picture of the hand dug Lemströms kanal, a channel interconcenting two bays, just east of Mariehamn.

The forrest road above is rather nice, but not representative for the road network on our islands, we have generally very modern and good roads, perfect for biking.

View from the outer archipelago.

Picture taken 500 meters from our home, depicting our home bay Slemmern.The small building to the right is acctually a newly built seafarer's chapel, popular for smaller, informal weddings. At the horizon you can see wind turbines. The wind turbine power plants on our islands produce a significant part of the energy we need.

Nice place for a picnic in the wild.
