This lake formed inside a crater created by a meteor. Nothing special ... though the park where the crater was located was quite tranquil and had a nice countryside feel to it.
The secluded location made me worry that Mary would murder me and dump my body here.

I had some trouble sleeping last night - I was coughing and wheezing all night long, and couldn't really breathe. Perhaps my body is breaking down now that I'm 30! Mary Moment #22: Mary screamed in the middle of the night, scaring the crap out of me. And when I started screaming "Mary, what's going on???", she wouldn't answer me. Probably having nightmares about traveling with me ...
Breakfast was included at the guest house - pretty standard stuff for this part of the world. There was a Spanish soap opera playing on TV. Telenovelas are so cheesy! But they also have Spanish hotties, so I'm not complaining. We set off to find another car rental agency and managed to get a car.
Saaremaa isn't a very big island - we drove around the western side of the island for awhile, then headed back to Kuressaare for lunch. We did a little bit of shopping before heading out to the southern end of the island. It was a bit of a boring day, but there was nothing else to do anyway.

A little info on the crater.

We offered a cell phone but they declined. We finally managed to agree to bring the wife to the next town. It wasn't a very pleasant ride as they had obviously been fishing all day ... the wife wasn't exactly minty-fresh.
We dropped her off and were on our way. Mary later confessed that she thought they might kill us. I then confessed that I wish they had, because it would've been the most exciting part of the day!
For dinner, we went to a tavern located inside of an old windmill. It was a pretty atmospheric place that served pretty good stuff. We couldn't finish the huge portions, but I guess we shouldn't have ordered soups to start. We took a quick walk before heading back to the guesthouse, where we watched an ultra-lame horror flick - Final Destination.
