We biked 36 miles today for a total of 336 miles.

Today was partly sunny all day. I wore a T shirt, while others wore light biking jackets. No threat of rain. Our best day so far. Near perfect. Good biking weather.

We left our hostel in Kastna at 9:30 am, earlier than usual. We had an excellent breakfast prepare by our hard working hostess. As we biked away, the owner's friendly dog followed us down the road for 3 km. We eventually called her and met her half with her dog in tow.

Stopped a few churches, mainly Orthodox. Stopped Lindi bog - interesting natural area with sandy bogs with low nutrient need plants, due to the sandy soil draining so quickly.

Had lunch at a local bar just we entered Parnu. I will probably never order a hamburger in Estonia again. It was swimming in a light mayonaise dressing in a waterproof wrap. If one were fill a bowl with this mayo concoction and stick a hamburger in a bun 1/2 way in it, that's what I was served. Up to this point all of our food has been surprising good. I would better than what we ate in Poland overall.

We found our hotel - in city center, old towne.

Pam and I went for a all to check some local historical buildings and down to the beach.
