Hiidenvesi swim... eek oil barrier snakes

Ralf and I wanted to dip into the lake after a sweaty hike where we searched for possible new caves. Hiidenvesi was on the way... it looked nice, but I had never really stopped there. We went to the water... and found (eek!) oil barrier snakes drying on land. Maybe swim on other side of the peninsula?

That swim wasn't all that great either, it was in a boat storage place and the water didn't seem all that fresh-smelling there either. But we managed to swim anyway. Now that I look at the pictures, I wonder if the black thing in the water is oil.

Anyway, one more swim day down, one new place, and dust and sweat washed away. Ok. And, maybe, skin oiled?

Coordinates where we swam: N 60.36370 E 24.16691.
