It was a really sunny and hot day, about 30°. The forest was quiet, only few birds sung about that day.
They were so tasty, I could not get enough of them. We tried to collect some for home to make a pie, but it was impossible. We had to eat them all :)
The forest had amazing feeling, smell and look to it. In english they are called “dry peaty forest” (said the dictionary), in finnish simply “kangasmetsä”
There were these strange spots of white “lichen” (if my dictionary got right) everywhere, like white clouds on the ground.
We saw huge dragonflies, flying around like helicopters…
We climbed up to a mountain, called “rukkovaara”, and there was a beautiful view from the top…
We did even find a geocaching hideout, the kids were excited about. It was a beautiful trip, some of those memories you do not forget easily.
