Power of nature and light – nature trail in Nauvo

Photos above are from a nature trail in Nauvo, Finland, in August 2013. The nature trail is located near the guest harbor of Nauvo and leads to the nearby stone labyrinth of Finby.

The guest harbor of Nauvo has often been a way point for our boat trips with its services, shops and possibility for refueling but never before for several days.

Summer was still at its best in August and despite of the huge waves on the way and occasional rain showers the weekend was lovely and refreshing.

The guest harbor of Nauvo offered relaxing surroundings by the sea and a possibility to sigh for the outstanding old wooden boats, astonishing trash dive and the Nagu Rock -event. During the weekend we were also able to marvel the wondrous starry sky, catch smoked salmon from the fishmonger, grill delicacies from the nearby store and to visit one of the many nature trails in Nauvo.

The nature trail meandered along the sand roads and paths ending¬† up on the rock with a stone labyrinth. Sun was shining beautifully, and the path gave peaceful break from bustle of the guest harbor. Gorgeous nature, silence of the forest, deep green and softness of the moss, sweet scent of the heathers on the ground, reminding from childhood in archipelago and ferns covering the forest floor. I was touched by the nature’s indisputable will for life and the power that has molded the landscape and gets the plants to compete of the light and the place on the forest floor.
