This reminds me of the old town in Tallinn, a beautiful city we visited last summer on our tour through Scandinavia. It is only about 2 hours by boat from Helsinki, but feels like you step back in time as you enter the old town…

Fresh Off the Boat
The streets wound Margery deeper into Old Town until she was completely lost. The narrow lane was deserted. Odd, given it was high summer and Tallinn was a popular cruise ship destination.
Looking into a window, she saw a woman dressed in clothes from long ago. Could she have slipped through a crack in time? Head swirling, she saw a man in tights join her. Was it the heat making her see things?
Frantic, Margery hurried to the corner and with relief, saw a teeming mass of turquoise. Shaking her head at her silliness, she rejoined her group. The Renaissance Faire was just about to begin.
