After breakfast outside in the garden we went by walk from Koguva towards a small island called Koinastu. It did not look very far on the map, and it also looked like it would be possible to walk over to the island along a path. However, after some walking we saw the island far away, much further than we had expected. So then we decided to return and go by car instead. We managed to find the way by car, but when we arrived we got discouraged by the seemingly deep water and lots of mud on the "path". We later found out that one family actually lives on the small island, but they have a big truck that they drive in order to get there. They even keep cows on the island!
So we had to forget our plans to visit Koinastu, and explore the rest of Muhu instead. First we drove to the north of the island, to Uugu cliffs. While searching for the cliffs we found a small beach where I was planning to swim, but I gave up these plans immediately as Stephen spotted some jellyfish
. Uugu cliffs is a very nice area, and we stopped there for a while to give Miranda food, and we took turns to walk around a bit in the area to film and take photos.
From Uugu cliffs we drove to the south coast, where we visited Padaste manor, which is nowadays used as a luxurious spa hotel. Here I finally got my long awaited swim in the sea for today
We also managed to visit the following sights on Muhu: Liiva church, Eemu windmills and Muhu stronghold. The stronghold was a bit of a disappointment though
. We had to search for it a long time, since our map did not show the location very clearly at all, so we ended up asking some residents to show as the way (luckily the woman living there could speak Swedish!). When we finally arrived to the stronghold it turned out to be just a clearing surrounded by 5m high wasteground, with a small monument in the middle.
By now we felt that we had seen what Muhu has to offer, so we returned to our dear B&B place in Koguva. We took a shower, made ourselves some coffee in the cottage and played with Miranda until it was time for dinner. We ordered seljanka-soup as starter and perch as main course, sooo delicious! Miranda was asleep in the cottage during almost all the meal, really good timing Mir!
