Well what a journey from Tallin to Tuksi - how can they call them roads???!!!Honestley, these have to be, and we're hoping will be the worst roads we will have to go on throughout our travels, as they were unbelievable - dirt track after dirt track, rubble after rubble for nearly 2 hours - can u imagine if we'd gone the wrong way - aaarrghhhhhh!!We were very shocked our Winnie was still in one piece after all that trauma, although very dirty she was ok & the only thing to fall off was a fly screen - wow!! So the plan was, head to Tuksi to relax by the beach for a couple of days and catch a few rays, before heading down to Parnu!When we arrived we realised it may not be as peaceful at camp as we may have hoped, as they had a group of 400 people booked in for the night staying in the cottages which were scattered about the site - fine we thought, won't be that bad, after all we're still young right??!!OH MY GOD - ALL BLOODY NIGHT - with the bass nearly knocking our Winnie over!!!And even a kiddies sing along, blaring from the speakers in the morning at 9 o'clock just after the other music had gone quiet - GREAT!

After all that, we did have a good day by the beach, watching a few of the stragglers from the night before staggering around looking for their friends, and not looking happy about the early kiddies music - haha!!We managed to catch up on a bit of sleep & do some sunbathing!The jellyfish were all over the sea - Paul insisted on pulling one out with a feather to look at it, but actually ended up bursting it we think - it didn't look too healthy afterwards anyway - poor thing!!!

Didn't quite realise how strong the sun was, and yes now look like a leopard with red & white patches all over - lush!!My legs are worst - very red all over - ouch!!Oh well - all part of the fun right!?Even Paul who was like 'I'll be very surprised if I catch the sun today' was very red on his chest & back - that'll teach him!!

We stayed just one more night in Tuksi, which was much quieter, and made our way to Parnu today - much better roads thank god!Just arrived at Konse Camping in Parnu a few hours ago - seems nice campsite right by the lake, near the beach and city centre - will let u know how we get on in a couple of days!

We've just watched Lewis Hamilton win Silverstone -yay - at least we can still win something us English eh!!

Love to you all!
