We had a surprisingly enjoyable overnight ferry trip from Finland to Sweden. The boat was comparatively new and our cabin was well equipped and spotlessly clean.
We had dinner in the main restaurant, which was set high up at the front of the ship, allowing wonderful views of our journey to the Baltic Sea. We sailed through calm waters surrounded by the hundreds of little islands lying off the coast. There were brightly painted wooden cabins on some of the larger islands but most were tiny islets with just enough room for a few fir trees. The evening sun was just setting and gave the glassy water a silvery glow, contrasting dramatically with the dark conifers all around us.
RIP Sue Knight. We will miss you x
