At 4.30 today Joonas and I walked down to the harbor and met up with at least 30 of my rotary men boarding two big yachts! We got on the smaller blue one with Jappa driving, and boated (or would you say sailed..even if we didnt have a sail?) out to Omena Saari (literally "apple island"), for my rotary meeting! We had makkara (sausage) and all the rotary guys drank a lot of beer, and we went to sauna and Joonas and i played darts and explored the island and the beach! It was an absolutly perfect day and night, even on the boat trip home i couldnt stop watching the sunset!
