It’s time for another chapter in Ice Swimmer’s series Harakka – an Island. Thanks again Ice Swimmer. Now, take us away…
Chapter 5 – On the Way to the Top of the Island
We come back from the shore and take a closer look at the fireweed behind the Artists’ Building, the former laboratory.
There is more fireweed near the building and also some shrubbery and young trees.
As the island has been a military site, there are multiple casemates (in Finnish, in singular: kasematti), built by Russians when Finland still was a part of the Russian Empire, that were used for storing ammo and this is one of them a bit south of the building.
Now we’ve taken the path south, past the casemate to get to the top of the island. There is an area protected by the wall with, again, some fireweed and some benches.
Next we’ll be getting to the actual top of the island.
