There is no happiness like mine

Today I walked for 2 h 20 min at Vaakkoi. This time I got 19 deer flies (Lipoptena cervi), almost as many as yesterday. However, one of them hit me in the car while driving to Vaakkoi, and so it must have found me already yesterday, hiding in my coat or in the car until this morning.

I have got almost 14 hours of exercise this week. However, weight has gone up by 2-3 kg since I started at work after the summer vacation even though I have got plenty of exercise. I guess I have been eating a bit too much.

The photographs were taken on July 27th at Koli.

And laid my weapon next to it

This morning I walked 2 1/2 hours, visiting lake Tränuhals. I got 21 deer fly, a new record. Having a deer fly crawl on your skin is not something to appreciate.


The photographs were taken on July 27th at Koli, except for the deer fly photograph which was taken today.

And the sliding of the water

I have got about nine hours of exercise so far this week. Maybe a bit too much, as the leg muscles are aching.
