It's day 3 in Nagu and we just finished with our first Finnish Sauna. It's a wood-fired traditional sauna and wow, was that worth it. Michael, the owner of the Grannas B&B needed a 4 hour notice to stoke the fire. It cost extra but we're not complaining as bowls of jello are very unlikely to complain.
The tradition is to sit naked while pouring ladels of water over the heated rocks. I'm sure you're all familiar with a sauna but ...

... some Finnish lollies that were like salty liquorice.
I thought I was doing quite well but 4 hours into the trip we hit some rough water and I started to get sea sick. We went up onto the deck but it was so cold and windy! We found a seat next to a window in the cafeteria which was much better.
We made it off the ferry and to our campsite pretty easily. And were relieved to get to bed. It had been a very long day!
