A boat trip to Pörstinki, an islet owned by my family

Very interesting set of photographs of rocks, piled and not piled, and trees and wooden stuff, dated from early August and located in the Eastern Gulf of Finland.

One of these three piles of rocks should be a grave dated from the Bronze Age. This is the most likely candidate.

This one could have been a grave for a child.

The rock would be a stupid place to bury people on… And I wonder how could this pile of rocks stand so close to the sea, and especially ice, for thousands of years. So my suggestion is that it has served as a sign for seafarers.

Nobody and no bodies there. My mom took maybe twenty pictures like this, maybe I should learn from her, just shoot shoot shoot and maybe one shot will be okay.

There is no shortage of rocks if you plan to build more graves.

A pine tree about 600 hundred years old. Hard conditions apparently make them grow slow and enable them to live longer. Difficult to take decent picture of a single tree in a small forest.

A sign. Probably from the Wood Age.

A place to organize my memories and photographs. Memories might get transformed over time: I have no internet access home so there will always be a time lag in updates - and there will also be some memories from the past to mess up the chronology.
