Trip 32 -- Hiiumaa Walk

20 June to 5 July 2022

This is the tenth of 26 Abecedarian Walks, my endeavor to walk around islands whose names begin with each of the letters of the alphabet.

Each "day" below corresponds to a walking day. Occasionally I took a day off from walking, and experiences from those days are incorporated into the previous or the following walking day's account.

In addition to these verbal accounts are musings, photos, and videos on Twitter.
