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!
SMARTee only visited Finland for a short time this time. He has now left Finland for Georgia, USA. He has heard that he will meet some new people in Georgia. Oh, by the way, SMARTee doesn’t travel alone. He has got someone with him! Good Luck SMARTee!
SMARTee is in the Lake District of Finland. Finland is called the land of the thousand lakes. Well, infact there are more than 185 000 lakes (larger than 500 square metres) in Finland. And it’s so beautiful!
SMARTee thought it would be nice to show everyone all his nice clothes and accessories. To be able to show everything he has his young relatives as assistants!
Now SMARTee is in Närpes in Western Finland. This time he has got absolutely no time to go around and admire the environment as he did last year. This year SMARTee has got a new hobby! Can you see what he is doing? SMARTee is a Beaver of his time!
SMARTee will be in Finland together with Jörgen, but just for a week. Hrmmm…. You can see that he has been away in Canada for some time. Time to mow the lawn…. But,,, TAKE ME OUT OF HERE BEFORE YOU START, EH!
Jörgen and Lotta were so sorry when they didn’t have SMARTee in Canada, so they bought some Beavers. Lotta has got SMARTa and Jörgen has got a group too. The big guy is called SMARTi. He is going to Stefan’s son!
Everybody are really excited! It’s a Postage Package! From Germany! Can it be SMARTee?
Oh.. Nobody can wait for their turn. Everbody wants to be the first one to see! It’s SMARTEE !!!! He has finally arrived!
SMARTee has been around before. It’s no big deal for him to have to be in a Box for a few weeks… “OK boys and girls”, he says, “If you sit peacefully, I will tell you about my adventures. It all started a year ago in a shop in Calgary….”
Jörgen and Lotta was in Calgary, Canada presenting the project… But no SMARTee. Jörgen tried to search him in different places where he had been earlier… He was here, in Banff National park, last year (go back and have a look). But now he is nowhere! Where is he?
