We are having it hot once again, the day temperature raising well above 25 °C and staying there from 11 am to 9 pm. Maybe it is the heat which makes one feel exhausted. Here are some photographs taken nearby; I didn't have the energy to go for a longer walk.

Juha, those images really transport an invitation to try the northern summer once! I am not so much a brutal sun and heat type, and in comparison to the 30°+ I had in Krk, 25° and a nice, not dry forest surely has its merits.

@Markus: Well, we do have it drier here than in the south of Europe, so the heat isn't so bad in any case. Last summer was exceptionally warm, and this seems to have heat as well, far from typical.

Maybe this is due to the global weather system being in a dry-and-hot phase over Finland. But there are summers when it is rather cold, and you never know in advance.
