Photo of the Week--1/19/09

Yeah, I know I'm a sucker for blue skies and bright churches. But this one was in Helsinki, Finland! In the summer of 2001, after a slight delay because of engine trouble, we took a cruise around the Baltic. We spent a lovely day in Helsinki, visiting the forest home of composer Jean Sibelius, and also walked by the lovely Tuomiokirkko, which you see in this photo. This is definitely the upside of northern latitudes: they may be dreary in winter, but the skies can be glorious on those long summer days. I could use some of that summer sky right about now.
