The first few pictures are from Helsinki, Finland, where Martin stopped over for 36 hours to visit Simon and Ismo on his way to a business meeting in Amsterdam. We had dinner outdoors at Simon and Ismo’s summer retreat, a tiny cabin in the woods close to downtown Helsinki. The next day we walked through the old part of Helsinki down to the waterfront, where we took a ferry to the 18th-century island fortress of Suommenlinna (Sveaborg). The next few pictures are from the Denver Botantical Gardens, where Fran, Alex and Martin went to see a visiting exhibition of Henry Moore sculptures. The last few pictures are from South Arapaho Peak (13,397’), a day-hike close to Boulder. Martin hopes that Fran has forgiven him for dragging her up here.
