I’m heading for Riga, which is about 200 km from where I camped. From there I’m off to Estonia up the coast road. Chip and Ken came down that way and told me the view wasn’t great. The road is close to the coast, but not close enough to actually see the sea. Just forest.
So, with time on my hands I decided I’d take the coast road to Riga. It adds about 250km to the journey, but it’s such a great day I don’t care. The costal road to Riga is…..
Just like the one Chip and Ken described! Not quite close enough to see the sea, but you do get a tantalising glimpse now and then! Occasionally there’s a turn off to the sea, so I took one for a look.
It’s beautiful! Sandy beaches, petty much deserted and there for my sole enjoyment. If only I was more of a beach person! 5 minutes is about enough, but I do appreciate it. Onwards and upwards, I pushed ahead towards Riga.
