Porvoo, Finland - 17th May 2009

By: Delenna

After the event we crossed the bridge and walked up and down the riverbank to another Handicrafts event.  That event was all about selling cool stuff - outdoors and without entrance fee. My host wished she had had more money with her...

That sailboat is just across the river where we continued our walk. It's galley m/aux Marita which was built in 1947 as cargo ship. Nowadays you can rent it for cruises (a 6h cruise costs 2250euros altogether) or accommodation.

I saw a lot of boats! Some of them were local river-cruiseships, like the two in the 3rd photo (and the sailboat)  B) The red one is called Fredrika, after the wife of a famous poet (JL Runeberg). Mrs Runeberg was sophisticated and wrote too but it was harder for a woman in those days - she had to use a male alias to publish her work! Mr Runeberg has his own name-sake boat.

After the event we took some pics on the pedestrian bridge, a small look over the riverbank. In the very last picture you can see the Art Factory from further away.
