It’s time for the next chapter in Ice Swimmer’s series.
Chapter 4 – Sunday in the North of Harakka
This concrete shed is on the northeastern corner of the island.
Looking northwest gives us a view of Uunisaari. While Harakka is accessible basically on summer for most people. Uunisaari is better accessible in the winter, because the pontoon bridge to Uunisaari is only in place during winter. However, a boat does go to Uunisaari in summer.
The small bridge in the left is the one connecting the two halves of Uunisaari, which is actually two islands, unless the sea level is very low.
The stairs connect the less steep eastern and more steep western shore in the north. The rusty pulley was there near the stairs, amid wild strawberry plants.
A view towards the mainland and Uunisaari from the cliffs in the north of Harakka. The red boat is a search and rescue boat.
In the summer, the paths here were almost overgrown. To the left is the path to the western shore.
This was a tour of the north of the island Harakka. In the next installment, we are going west, revisiting some familiar places and exploring further on the western cliffs.
