SMARTee is loving Espoo but ready to escape the cold weather here!! He is packing and ready to go on his big adventure. Students in Ms. Brianna’s Class in Espoo Finland are helping to design and make a suitcase for SMARTee as he continues his world travels! London here we come!
Today I visited Linda in her home. She lives in the Archipelago in the Gulf of Finland. Although it is winter the ice is not thick enough for Hovercraft. She goes with a boat, Sibbe, that can manage some ice.
This is Sibbe.
And this is the Hovercraft that she will go with when the ice is thick enough.
I wanted to watch birds, but the birds didn’t want to watch me… First time I have been mistaken for a squirrel. Is it my uniforms? Anyway, it’s important to feed the wild birds in the winter – and it’s really nice too. Some birds move south and some birds stay in Finland.
Well no birds while I was there…. but as soon as I left…
Well, the birds in Finland are as shy as the people…
I think I will go for a ride with my sledge. Jörgen is putting in a small video where you can see me in action! Follow the link below:
Till next time!
I like writing my blogs myself. I think I am one of very few Beaver Bloggers in the world. Perhaps I should call myself SMARTEE the Blogging Beaver…
OK, when you guys got your presents and celebrated New Year I was in an envelope…. Since I am in the country of Santa Claus I will try to find as much Christmas as possible.
First stop. Huge Christmas tree outside a residential home (you know, where older people who need some assistance live).
Oh, I think I am a little stuck!
One whole month in an envelope means that I missed Christmas, Hanukkah AND New Year. But most important: I am FREE and I am BACK in Finland! I received a medal for being brave during the transport.
Now I already feel much better… Remember my smile?
But wait… I think I can still find some Christmas. There is snow… and we are in Finland… It can’t be that impossible!
Christmas 2016 has been fun!
