Kristina Regina probably needs no introduction, as I wrote widely on her in yesterday's entry about her. The photographs below are of the Kristina Regina in Helsinki South Harbour on 28 May 2010, taken from Kaivopuisto. Click on image(s) to view full size.

In the South Harbour pool, with Market Square in the background.
Still in the harbour pool, with the Uspenski Cathedral (Alexey Gornostaev 1868) in the background.
On Kruunuvuorenselkä shortly afterwards, with Laajasalo oil harbour in the background.

    Nice shots, again ! Mostly I like the one with the Uspendski Cathedral in the BACKGROUND
    I'm gonna miss that boat.

    Good thing is, that this background will stay similar to what it looked like twenty years ago.... there will be no new WHITE CROSS Hotel !
