The owner of Lepispea is really helpful: „Here is a map oft he Lahemaa national park. Here you can find…and bears.“ „Oohh really bears?“ I ask. „Yes, here are three or four bears around.“
Lepispea Camping and Lahemaa national park
DOn the next day we are going on a trekking tour between Vosu and Kasmu in the Lahemaa national park. Our first destination is a small lake close to the Gulf of Finland.
“There are some deers.” Astrid points. We have a break at the lake and are enjoying the beautiful countryside.
The trial goes further north. However we make a quick side trip to the Gulf of Finland. It is just around the corner and 60 metres away from the lake. A cold wind is breezing. So we decide to follow the trail into the forest.
Two days before there was a big storm around the area. Therefore we have sometimes to look for a way around small lakes and rivers on our trail. We are passing a forest and arriving in the old smuggler village Kasmu.
Kasmu is a pretty village with traditional wooden houses at the Gulf of Finland. We are relaxing some time on the “beach” north of Kasmu. From May to July birds breed there. A bus arrives and a group of English people armed with field glasses to hunt the birds. Jump out of the bus.
Wir wandern durch den Wald und gelangen zu einem alten Schmugglerdorf.
inally we walked round about 20km this day. Tomorrow we have to do another service for Loki. The day after we will drive to Russia to Saint Petersburg.
