Turku, as I mentioned before, is hosting one leg of the Tall Ships Race for this year. There are dozens of them here, and they are making the city very busy indeed.

On with the day! The beds here are surprisingly comfortable, and we had one of our best night's sleep on the trip!

After breakfast, an expedition to find form lunch goodies also netted us a pair of titanium LMF sporks. These are wonderful tools for travellers and campers - even the polycarbonate ones are great - giving you a spoon at one end, and a fork at the other, with a serrated time on one side. The metal ones are usually not available in Australia, and on the rare occasions they are, they are AUD30-40. We got these for about half that. Score!

Lunch down by the Aura followed, in a section between two bridges that was populated with ex coastal traders-turned-restaurants. I'm guessing that they gutted the hulls, and used a crane to life the shells into place.

Back to the SS Bore, where we are staying, and we settled in for the afternoon, as the tall ships moved out in procession. This made for some stunning photo ops.
