Saimaa, the largest lake in Finland. The Seinäjoki -river is a small river so this boat is not going to sail on it. Some local daring entrepreneurs will restore it as a restaurant boat and anchor it somewhere near this place. They will be busy, cause the plan is to get the restaurant open by midsummer, June 21. I will post more photos as things evolve.

This is a statue to honor the Finnhorse breed. A horse breed developed fully in Finland. The breed has played an important role as a draught horse and had a lot of responsibilities in the finnish wars. The text in the statue says "Suomenhevonen Suomen Puolesta 1939-1945". "Finnhorse for Finland 1939-1945".

This is the Kyrönjoki -river flooding. What I've been reading this is the biggest flooding for many years. This is really a field and if you look really closely there is a barn standing in the middle of the water.
This road cannot be taken. At least with a normal car.

The blog has been on a winter break. I changed the main topic to properly describe the nature of it. It doesn't have daily photos, so maybe the name should be plain and simple "Photos from Seinäjoki". Maybe I will find some time to dig up the camera and take some more photos soon.

The local transport here hasn't really developed in the last 20 years. This change would maybe give a possibility for that. However there was some kind of mixup in the competition and everything can still go back the way it was. That would mean Veolia would continue.
Härmän liikenne branded their buses as "Komia liikenne" (Komia transport). "Komia" is a finnish dialectual word for handsome and it is used in the marketing of Seinäjoki area.
