DAILY PHOTO: Gulf of Finland Inlet

In 2011, we made a mid-summer trip to Helsinki. We stayed at the Hilton Helsinki Kalastajatorppa. It’s located northwest of Helsinki proper up the inlet to the city’s west side (not far from Seurasaari Island.)

This photo was taken at probably 1:30am. Vampires beware: I don’t think it ever got fully dark. There was always light on the horizon. Those little black specks on the water are birds whose circadian rhythms were as confused as was mine.

BTW, that hotel has an awesome breakfast buffet that’s included in the room price.  It’ s a little out-of-the-way though.
