Hietsu swim

Second to last day of July, having swam every day so far. But again, not much time for this after all the work and home stuff. I'm late, but I haven't yet been in Hietaniemi or Hietsu as it is called. Since it is late and weather is kind of sketchy, I'm guessing there won't be many people. What a treat I got, wonderful sunset/storm clouds. And a nice swim!

I also found parking very easily. Another benefit of going at a time when other people aren't :-)

Hietsu is the prime beach in Helsinki and perhaps in all of Finland. Prime as in not being the prettiest or nicest, but definitely prime for its crowd scene. "Everybody" goes there, particularly on graduation days, hot summers, etc.
