Painting at Kauksi beach in Ida-Virumaa, Estonia

I’ve never seen such cute waves at Kauksi, without wind! And imagine that, on august 6th, you have the beginning of a +30C heat wave. Must remember to save some tanning lotion for August also!

On our way back home we stopped at Ninasi in Ida-Virumaa, where was an abandoned postal office.

A lookouraound platworm tower, as if I knew the correct term, behind the Ninasi bus stop. It’s closed, but you know, wouldn’t it be nice to climb this rusty net, right to the top.

And then this cute fish staiway next to Kose watermill:

And there is home and huge amount of ice cream!

Biking in South Estonia to find Suure-Kambja Burnt Manor

Decided to start the day of our little bike trip at 6am, which was a good choice. If you want to enjoy the trip and get a decent sunburn, you must try to hit the target by noon. Definitely never take a hat with you and do take only one bottle of water. Most importantly, look around! Make the planned 50km on your MTB bikes a nice 70km instead.

In our way we stumbled across the Unipiha manor and ruins (photos by Triin Erg) Unipiha

Then had a little painting and eating stop by the Suure-Kambja lake. Suure-Kambja

Triin found a bunch of butterflies:

Our goal of the trip was to find this burned down manor house, Suure-Kambja manor:

De door is still up!

This is how it used to look in the 1960s (photo by Veljo Rannik). It was built in the 19th century and burnt down in 1998 by (“a suspicious” accident http://www.mois.ee/english/tartu/suurekambja.shtml )

The day went great, we used to wonder around on our bikes a lot, now I remember why!
