Vetokannas swim

Late is the key. Almost no one at the Vetokannas ex-sandpit, current beach & hangout place.

What's remarkable about Vetokannas is the swimming platform in the middle of the lake. It is easy to swim to it, and it adds a nice touch. And of course, Vetokannas is right in the middle of everything, in Kaivoksela. 10 meters from a bus station, 30 meters from the parking lot, and so on. Coordinates: N 60.27110 E 24.88088.

I had never been here before, but I had spent time in other Vantaa's ex-sandpits in my childhood. This visit brought back some memories.

I also visited Martinlaakso on the way here. This painting of Martinlaakso's own boy,  Mika Häkkinen, was awesome:
