After visiting the observation tower near Haaja we decided we wanted to go back up the west coast of Estonia to visit Parnu before entering into Latvia. Not only was this popular seaside resort positively buzzing with Estonian's looking to soak up some sun but we were also gifted heat in excess of 40c and found ourselves sat with our air-con running trying to decide when we were going to face the heat!

 We found somewhere to park up for free next to the river (GPS: 58.38767 24.49373) and found some shade to watch what turned out to be some sort of speed boat race on the river although I can find no mention of it online.

We failed to mention on our last blog post that we visited a rose garden on our way out of Poltsamaa which had a collection of 900 different rose varieties which are in bloom from mid June to September. The entrance fee cost just under 2 euro each to visit - here are a couple of photos from our album. 

We sat and planned our route through Latvia as well as writing a sort of summary to Estonia, you'll see in the next post!
