when one is over 50 birthdays aren't really about the sort of celebration that involves cake and booze ... well not to me ... its more about the celebration of the fact that you're alive and you can go out and do stuff.
In Finland there is a word "Retki" ... it means an outing with a lunch ... so I took a sandwich and a thermos out and went for a short but pleasant ski to a place that I like.
Here's some pictures for you (saves me writing an essay)
Just across the river at the old docks
looking into the sun across a (small) island
which is a beautiful place despite its small size
the island serves as a wind break ... and snow forms in small banks behind it.
Ok ... well ... I'm about done now ... so thanks for coming
