For a history of the Sea Wind, see the first entry on her. The photographs in this entry show the Sea Wind departing from Turku on the evening of 15 February 2013, photographed from Ruissalo. Click on the images to see them in larger size.

Sea Wind leads while the brightly lit Viking Grace follows. The Grace is scheduled to depart before the Sea Wind, I think, but her arrival in Turku was delayed.
Onwards to the darkness.
Next time is archive time! We might be looking at old photos from my 2007 Canaries cruise to get some international colour to this blog again. Unless of course I feel inspired to go and take some new photos instead.
