Group day out at Isosaari

The group visited Isosaari to mark Myrsini's departure to a new job in the UK

ABRU had a day out on Helsinki's Isosaari island in July, to mark Myrsini's last month as part of the group. The island has been newly opened up to the public after many decades as a miltary base. As well as enjoying a picnic and a game of mölkky, we saw evidence of this summer's massive cyanobacterial blooms in the Gulf of Finland.
