Not just a lifebuoy

I had not seen this before, but at the Oittaa beach on the Bodom lake there's a clever "lifebuoy", with integrated emergency boat for the rescuers to use. Very nice! We need more of these!

The official beach web page is at Espoo's website, here. The Oittaa restaurant web page is here. There's also a Retkipaikka article here. And obviously. Tony Hagerdlund's excellent blog covers it as well here.

My previous article about swimming in the neighborhood of Oittaa was here -- about the "murder cape", a site of a famous triple murder many decades ago.

For more sauna and swimming stories, check out and websites! And of course the Planetcaver, and Planetskier blogs for other stories in Blogspot and TGR! The photos and text (c) 2023 by Jari Arkko.
