... we were travelling by car. That evening we had some enormous chicken pieces with salad, they were in a marinade when we bought them, a sort of bright orangey/red colour but quite tasty despite that. Going to bed , I reflected that I was feeling relieved and content that the aquatic segment of the trip had gone so well and was now completely relaxed that the following week would pass equally ...

Day 1 of mini-expedition

... our way out of the very shallower waters and into areas that had 5 or 6 metres under us and finally, we entered the shipping channel into Oulu, where there was 20m or more. Phew!

Many harbours in this part of the world seem to be the centre point of heavy industry, which makes them seem pretty uninviting to any visitor coming in by sea. Oulu was up there competing for the first prize, there was no sign of the town itself at all as we neared the harbour itself. However, ...
