We left Helsinki in the morning, took a cab and an airport bus to the airport to pick up a rental car. All that went smooth. It was a two and a half hour drive from Helsinki Airport to where we were looking to do our touring, the Turku Archipelago, a chain of islands with supposedly all kinds of interesting things to see.
We had researched a number of places to go to but only made it to two. Partially because it took longer for us to get there and partially because it took forever to find a place to eat lunch because so many things were closed.
Our targets of opportunity
The Sadness of 'Out-of-Season'
And yet there was a 15th century church with all kinds of interesting visual aspects
Beautiful fall colors
And interesting buildings
Tomorrow we go to the old historic capital of Turku so we'll see if our luck turns
