Weekly Photo Challenge: Descent

This series of photos are from the Suomenlinna Sea Fortress in Finland.  It was a very cold and breezy day, so there were not a lot of people visiting the fortress. We decided to go down this empty street where we stumbled upon a big friendly kitty and around another corner I spotted a guy standing on a boat coming out of one of the buildings.  It matched with the building nicely, so at first I thought it was a part of the building. I believe it is a boat that was just finished being built and was making its ceremonial descent down the little ramp and into the sea!  There was a Finland flag flying and as you can see from the last photo, they lowered the flag right after the boat had successfully made it!

This is when I came around the corner and spotted the beautiful boat sticking out of the building.
