Lunch by the sea

Lunch in cafeteria by the sea, close to home...

                     Each of us with our own salad... to taste

         The sky was, and is again as I write this, very dramatic

    And these cool guys with their sunglasses... are the 'little' ones...

We cry with you.

Flags at half-mast today in Finland ... we cry with you Norway!

This the flag in front of our apartment building in Helsinki...
