Leaving the cathedral we doubled back through the market to look around. Aside from our magnet purchase, we bought a mouth watering punnet of Finnish grown strawberries
We headed back to the square, and into the free Helsinki Historical museum for a brief wander around many informative and interesting exhibits. Lunch in the city was expensive so we took a scenic casual stroll back in the direction of the port. We ended up actually having McDonalds as it was relatively cheap. After that, some time in the bar next door to have a local beer and cider.
Ive become better and better at navigating foreign places, and as such, getting back to the ship wasn't too difficult. We made it back around 4pm. Onto the top deck to watch as the ship departed Helsinki, making its way through the archepagleo, past many small islands. There was time for some scrabble before our second formal dinner aboard. After, we elected to give the casino a try, as we had a few vouchers to use also. We couldn't have had less fun. American pokies are really boring, and from 6 spins of roulette red or black, we lost every single time. Casinos suck. Tomorrow we arrive at our final cruise port of call in Stockholm.
