Mihklipäeva

For Mihklipäeva (St. Michael's Day) access to the Estonian Open Air Museum was free, and there were many activities taking place. We enjoyed a delicious authentic Estonian meal at the pub, then visited many of the historic houses on the grounds, finishing with a church service in the historic Sutlepa Chapel on the museum grounds. It was a beautiful day to be outside in Estonia!
In the bedroom of one of the farmhouses was this wonderful pillow cover: maga hästi--sleep well.

We found St. Michael's daises outside of one farmhouse.

There were also large windmills from the Estonian countryside.

Peter made a toy from acorns and other items from nature.

We also had the chance to swing!
