Ice Road to Masskär

The trip to Masskär was rather spontaneous. My friend Elisa sent me a message that ice road is open and we can go to the lighthouse which is located on the island by foot (the road is around 3 km long). I like discovering new places, besides it was a new way as I never walked on sea ice.

We did not count that it would be sooo strong wind and we regretted that we did not have a snowmobile. But we are strong women and wind could not stop us! haha 🙂

Besides if we did not walk that way by foot, I could not do such nice pictures of ice… So, it is always better to think about advantages.

I really liked the way Finnish people spend their spare time with their families. Usually they go to their summer cottages on a weekend, even in winter, make bonfire and prepare food, also spend time walking on a beach.

I would also wish to have such summer cottage near the sea.
