After leaving Parnu about 30K down the road, we decide to take the "road less traveled" even
though we know from past experiences, that can bring us trouble. And we were not disappointed
either as we end up lost in a gravel pit and figure out that our rad was the one back a ways that
turned into gravel. So we had to make a decision as to whether or not to ride 15K on gravel and
whatever else it turned into or head back to the main road. We opted for the paved road after our
"detour" of 10K. Then the rains came and soaked us, but at least it was not a driving rain and not
freezing cold. Lucky for us, the rain did not last long. We stopped for a coffee break at a gas
station. It was one of our yummiest breaks yet! An organized bicycle ride of 18 cyclists rolled in
while we were there-all males/wimpy Estonian females!
After lunch at a local bar we end our longest day of 98 miles in Tallinn, capitol of Estonia. We
finally figure out what the huge birds are that we have been seeing since we started our ride.
They are storks which build huge nests atop utility poles. They are here for the summer and go to
Africa when it turns cold here. We find a nice B&B in the heart of the city and head out for
supper in a very nice restaurant. The best part of the meal was the rhubarb cheesecake.
