256/365: land ahoy!

Monday 20th

The sight of the sun on the Finnish archipelago as we sailed back into Turku harbour was awesome. And so very welcome after the dismal weather in Stockholm and on the journey back to Finland.

When the dove returned to him in the evening, there in its beak was a freshly plucked olive leaf! Then Noah knew that the water had receded from the earth.He waited seven more days and sent the dove out again, but this time it did not return to him … Noah then removed the covering from the ark and saw that the surface of the ground was dry.

(Gen 8)
