Yesterday on the All Saints Day we, at first, went to lit candles on the graves of all the loved ones. Then to Helsinki to attend the event of the memorial ceremony at the memorial for seafarers. My father in law was a seaman. He and my husband visited the memorial event long ago. I have walked in the park many times but, this was the first time I was there at the event. About ten sea rescue boats sailed by in a parade honoring the event. The wind was pretty hard and cold. It was hard to take photos. My fingers freezing cold and numb. It is sad to think of all those who lost their lives at sea. Most often during horrible weather conditions.
What a lovely way to remember. My great grandfather was a shipwright, builder. On a town by the North Sea.
It sure is a lovely way to remember.
