Early in the morning we left our hostel, backpacks on, as we made our way out of Old Town to the #2 bus stop once again. We had to wait for a bit before the bus came and we ended up having a conversation with an Estonian man who claimed to be an ex sharp shooter and was quite clearly drunk. He wished us farewell with a God Bless America as we boarded the bus. I actually managed to sleep a bit on the way to Kuressaare, waking up shortly before we boarded the ferry. The ride wasn't very long, but it allowed us to stretch our legs a bit before we had to hop back on the bus. After buying bus tickets for the following day, we followed our hostels directions (it was actually a bed and breakfast) and about 30 minutes later we were in our room. I changed clothes (it was really hot outside) and we set off towards the castle. We walked along the beach and watched in disbelief as people were swimming in the cold water. We spent some time walking around the castle, then made our way into town. Kuressaare is not that large and

The windmill/restaurant
was easy to navigate on foot. We bought some souvenirs and walked over to this windmill which is actually a restaurant. Back in the main part of town we ended up splitting a four cheese pizza for dinner. I was very entertained by the separation of each of the four cheeses into sections so that none of the cheeses were actually mixed together. Eventually we made our way back to our bed and breakfast where we watched one of the three channels our TV was able to pick up, for a bit before going to sleep. I liked Kuressaare; however, for us a day was plenty of time to see everything we wanted to see. There was more I had wanted to see on the Island of Saaremaa; though, without a car those things are not easy to get to.
