This blue marble

At the races

Loviisa-2

Last year was quite the drama at Small Ships’ Race. Boats capsized in the wind and it was truly a game for only those who knew how to sail. This year was just another beautiful blue warm breezy summer day. Perfect for a leisurely game followed by a party on the landing. Once again I marveled at the ability of small town folk to dance, jump, and kiss like they were unknown to everybody – until the next day when the rumors began to gain color and momentum.

In a small town like Loviisa one’s business is everyone’s business. Except for the strawberries and cava in the orchard – only ours to enjoy!
