To the beach! – Despite the coast being surrounded by heavy industry and docklands we heard there was one. We past the memorial to the Tallin ferry disaster and headed into the streets of real Estonia. High rise flats and wooden buildings that had seen better days. After an hour and 30 minutes walking, we found the beach. We were surprised how nice it was, expecting it to be more industrial.
Five degrees with slight drizzle wasn’t exactly beach weather so we ate our sandwiches sat on large damp rocks, which took me back to the ‘how to avoids haemorrhoids’ lecture my granddad had given me when I was 12.
We then jumped the tram to the new town. After ten minutes of walking past modern shops and mega malls we headed back to the old town.
At 10:30pm we were on the train to St Petersburg. How would we cope on a train for 9 hours?
