Journal Entry:
Got up early and the sun was out. I was going to Estonia! It was still very cold out but it was clear sunny, and not very windy. I got to the hydrofoil dock and once again the runs to Tallin had all been canceled. As I was getting on the boat back to Stockholm tonight that was my last chance. I wasn't going to Estonia.

Ditched my pack at the Silja Line terminal. Spent the afternoon trying to spend my remaining marks. Bought a corkscrew, some camping flatware, another Clancy novel, and had a good lunch.

Got on the Symphony for the ride to Stockholm. Pretty much the same cabin as last time. The on board entertainment doesn't seem as impressive anymore...
