One day of summer extension

Saturday was an unexpectedly warm day, so I had to take advantage of it by hanging around downtown and enjoying the day. One thing I like about the Helsinki summer is that there’s often something interesting or semi-interesting going on; this time it was the beach volley Finnish championship competitions next to the railway station where they had brought a big heap of sand for the occasion. Until Friday, I had no idea this was going to happen and by Saturday had forgotten all about it – until I bumped into it wandering around downtown. Semi-finals were ongoing when I stopped to watch:

Other targets included the new small additional parliament building and a small new fountain in front of it:

Some other photos have been added under the Helsinki 2005 gallery.
