There are Loons......Arctic Loons

The lake you saw in the finishing photos is good for swimming, and has a beach. Many of the crews have been hanging out at the beach during flying. There is another lake next to the camping area and we went swimming in it and saw a bird that looked like a loon, and it dove into the water like a loon. We asked a Finn what the bird was, and was told that it was a Kuikka – thanks to Google I could get a translation – it is an Arctic Loon. So there are loons in Finland.

I think that the lake is a little cool for swimming – 19 C, but the Finnish think that is warm!
