Think about what it’d be like to be somewhere else

A week ago I went for a walk with my daughter at Salmi, going to the parking place south of the lake, to Etelälahti. What I didn't know was that there is a big trailer park there, must be more than a hundred trailers with people living in them all through the year. In any case, the paths through the forest were wide and well maintained, and even though the forest isn't all that wild, it was rather quiet, and some parts of the area contained a touch of the wild.
