Helsinki winter II

Some more pictures from the strange winter in Helsinki. The weather is changing all the time with everything between sunshine, rain, snow, storm, warm and cold. For the first time I can remember, there is no sea ice in February.

At the top of Myllykallio in Lauttasaari, there is a lookout tower. My father is enjoying the view

Wheel and ice

Out cycling in Oulunkylä, I found what was left of some old bike
