Sunday walk


 We had a little colder sunny day today.


I jumped in my car and went to Hvitträsk.


Hvitträsk was the home of three architects.


Today it's a museum and a restaurant.


There is ice on the lake, but


we don't have a lot of snow this winter.


Next I went to the nature preserve in Espoonlahti.


View up the river.


I saw 10-15 long-tailed tits here,


but I didn't get any photos of them.


My final stop was the Espoo Cathedral.


View inside the Cathedral from the door.


I love the old murals in the ceiling.


Gorgeous stained glass window.


The organ and the pulpit.


I walked a bit along the river before I returned home.

    Thanks Gunilla for a wonderful documentation of your Blogger´s Sunday walk, Winter.
    The pictures of the river landscape are marvelous. I start the summery post when more bloggers contact me. Have a nice week!

    1. Thank you, Margaret! I love our old churches. This one is about the same age as the Cathedral in Porvoo (in my header).

  5. Hienoja kuvia. Hvitträskissä en olekaan koskaan ollut talvella, noissa kahdessa kyllä.
    Sinulla oli pitkä kävelymatka, jos kävelit noissa kolmessa paikassa samana päivänä, luulenkin että siirryit autolla. Niin minä usein teen.

    1. Kiitos, Orvokki! Joo, autolla olin liikkeellä. Liikunta tekee hyvää, mutta ei kannata liioitella!

  6. Very pretty place to walk! I'm thinking it must be much warmer there than it is here north of Toronto!
