I guess nobody dares to go swimming in this water (except immediately after finnish sauna...;-)))

Respect and regards, MM

Hi MM, my wife does - and she hates sauna! I joined her a few weeks ago for an icy dip. It WAS as cold as it looks. But I survived;) Greetings from Helsinki, Petteri

I can´t believe it - you are a bit crazy in the North ;-)))

Just a bit??? ROFL:)) Seriously, you´ll have to try it someday too! I´ve also dived under the ice a few times - but then I had a dry suit on. Much warmer that way;-)

Thanks:) This is one of my favourite places nearby. But I prefer swimming there in summertime!

Greetings, Petteri
