made it to Estonia

So, despite thinking I was an hour early, I made my boat just in time(apparently I didn't set my watch far enough forward yesterday)  .  So of you might get a kick out of this catamaran.  She's pretty friggin fast, and puts out a serious rooster tail.  About $90 round trip, plus you can drink the whole time, which makes it hard to tell whether you're drunk or if its just the seas rocking you around when you decide to move about on deck.

Leaving the harbor:

The boat:

Awesome pictures, is there

Awesome pictures, is there any hunting over there?  Im moving to Germany and I know bowhunting is against the law at least in Germany.  Wondering if its worth my time to hit up other countries during my stay.Confused

actually.....

According to a recent survey, they supposed to be the most atheistic country in the EU.  Obviously that wasn't always the case,  but religion was heavily suppressed during the Soviet Occupation years.  But there's a mix of Russian and Estonian Orthodox, Catholic, but mostly Lutheran churches as a result of heavy Danish and Swedish influences.

Wonderful architecture.

Those are great.  Wonderful architecture.  Thank you for sharing your awesome photographs with us.  This is as close as I am likely to ever get to seeing it myself.

OOPS

Soooo, I got a little taste of the wild night life here last night.  Ran into two British guys and two Americans that were here for a cybersecurity conference and got F'd up.  No idea how or when I got back to my hotel, but I'm sure that was a real treat for the receptionist I probably woke up in order to let me in.  Then I threw up in the middle of the night.  I lost my glasses and had to have reception help me find them somewhere in my room; they ended up between the bed and the headboard.  And of course, since I woke up at noon, I missed my boat back to Helsinki.  Not real smart, but I'm alive and managed to catch another boat and essentially pay double for the ticket.

Anyway, pretty much done sightseeing now, gonna do family stuff from here on out.
