Old town and centre is less than a mile from our anchorage and is very quaint with old traditional wood buildings, narrow streets, loads of craft shops (had to resist!) and a very folksy feel, lot of folk around with guitars so may be some event pending. This is a spa town and mud baths are the speciality, no problem resisting, it is very quiet and peaceful and highlight is the promenade about half mile long which goes from Africa Beach to Chocolate Promenade, tried to find out why the non Estonian names but couldnt. Had lunch out at a place called Hapsal Dietricht, smallish but very friendly and food was best we have had in Estonia, bill incl wine for the 3 of us was Euros 14, a real bargain.
Nice to stretch our legs and warm enough this afternoon for a swim when we got back to Cefi. Lazy day planned for tomorrow before we explore the islands. Wind is still very light and forecast to stay that way and as it it not too far will probably fire up the engine, getting diesel doesnt seem to be the problem that we thought it might be, even if we have to use the jerri cans, so dont have to save the fuel for the generator. We were told there is a marina called Grand Holm about 10 mins walk from us that has diesel and Andrew and Graham will wander that way with our trolley and cans and see what is available in the morning.
