Where no airfields exist

Evening trip to Sand Bank 2.8.2014

Sand Bank is a sand bank :) in the Gulf of Bothnia located approximately 20km west from our sea plane base. It’s only about 10 minutes flight so it’s easy to reach. Great place for swimming and camping.
Surrounded by nothing but sea apart from a few stones access is only possible when the sea is calm enough. I’ve always approached the sand bank from northern side as do all the boats too but from the air it seems possible to approach also from the southern side if the water is high enough. We do not have the tide here but the wind actually makes water to go up or down surprisingly much.

Enjoy the photos!
