Monday, took a short run to Tallbacka in the Helsinki archipelago where we discovered the most beautiful bay nestled amongst the islands. Tried our hand at fishing, which was a complete waste of time even though the bay was awash with 35 types of fish (according to the Guide of Fishing in Finland). Did see a shoal of fish 30 yards or so away feeding on the surface, their sleek black backs glistening in the evening sun and a family of Grebes venturing into the bay from their nest sheltered amongst the reeds. Made a second discovery that night - Georgian wine does not "travel". We suspect it should not be allowed to travel beyond Tblisi. What's left may come in handy to clean the grime off the hull.
