Finland: Sunset on the Gulf of Bothnia

Gulf of Bothnia, Finland During my three and a half week visit to Finland in July, my boyfriend and I made a four day trip up north. We stayed on his grandparents’ farm in Piehinki , a tiny town near the top of the Gulf of Bothnia. It was a short walk to the Gulf, and after a long day hiking in Lapland, we went for a swim at sunset (which was still pretty late then…after 10pm). The water was quite shallow, so you could walk pretty far out before it started to get deep enough to actually swim. However, it was also really cold, but the gorgeous northern sunset turning everything gold was worth the chill.
