... The glacial moraines appear out of the water, and the land mass is increasing. We saw it clearly from the observation tower. On Monday, we went cycling in the countryside, and went for a drive to some of the small villages. In Vaasa, we visited the Market Hall, the had some eats at the European Food Market in the centre square which was a fairly humble affair. Tomorrow we continue further ...

Now it has slowed down & is rising at about 1 cm/year. No one knows how much further the land will rise - 1mt to 1km. Amazing to contemplate.

Back on the boat, we watched another download and in bed by 10:45, in bright sunlight, we were just dozing off when we heard what turned out to be two other motor boats tie up, one an old Swedish rescue boat and one more modern cruiser. We felt a little guilty that they had to squeeze in at the end of the pontoon and use the stern buoys, but not too much as Juha had said that it was unlikely we would have any other boats ...
