Mid-Summer (Juhannus)

Last weekend saw the mid-summer (juhannus) celebrations here in Finland, so like many people here in Finland we headed for the countryside, for us this means going to visit Geocaching mummy.
Well we had a really good time, going to sauna, grilling (indoors due to a bit of rain), and just relaxing.
Mrs Geocacher spent time with her mummy, while Mr Geocacher did some fishing (and fed the local mosquito's).
We did not stay the whole weekend because of getting home to the pets. So on the Saturday evening we headed off home. It was a nice evening so we thought we would hunt out a few caches on the way.
As it was the evening after mid-summer there was lots of dances going on, so we still had to be careful of muggles, well avoiding muggles and short showers of rain we managed to bag ourselves a nice batch of caches.
Below are just a few pictures from that evening, taken from or near cache locations.

 Taken near a cache location
 Yes we found a cache hiding near here
 This is one of the barn dances that was going on that evening, there is a cache close to this location. It is the oldest barn still hosting these dances in Finland, and has been hosting dances since 1949.
This was taken just after one of the short showers of rain, and yes it is at a cache location, plus I like this picture very much.
Well that is it for this post, but there will be more as we are both now on our summer holiday.
I also have some plans to write some kind of explanation about Geo-caching as a lot of people have been asking me about it, so if there is anything you wish to know or would like to read, now is the time to mention it in the comments below, and I will see if I can accommodate you or even answer your questions.
