The Signs

signs

Signs in Yllas Ski Resort in Finnish Lapland. The place has a special meaning to me. We went to ski there every winter. It was our family vacation. It won’t be the same again since my mother died. But it will always be a place in my heart. I was only 2 months old when I first went to Lapland but then I didn’t anything about skiing.

The ski slope wasn’t closed but when they are, there’s sign like that on the left. That other sign is just there to show where to go.

Going on an adventure!

To the cemetery that is. Not an adventure like Bilbo Baggins or Frodo did.

In the cemetery there’s a lot of squirrels around and they’re quite tame. This one realised I was taking a photo of it. It looked like it was having a dialog with me. Like a photographer having a photo shoot with a model. The squirrel kept posing from one side to another of the tree. Kind of funny moment.

One of them came really close so I freaked out a bit. I managed to take a picture of it, the reason it’s blurry. It was quite an adventure even if the cemetery is the most quiet place there is.
