Headed out into the brutally cold rain to catch the hydrofoil to Tallin (Estonia), but there was too much wind and all the runs were cancelled. Walked around Old Market Hall (got lunch), Market Square, and downtown. Got sick of being out in the cold and went into a cafe. Had a couple cups of coffee and read for an hour or two. Decided to go back to the hostel, but when I came out it was clear and sunny (still brutally cold), so I decided to catch the ferry to Suomenlinna. Suomenlinna is a fortress build on five small islands. Spent a couple hours exploring the old passages (wish I'd brought a flashlight!). Walked around the islands some, and had a picnic supper on the farthest coast from the ferry landing.
Back at the hostel spent way to many hours doing my laundry (waiting for the dryer).
