In southern Estonia, there is a funeral custom that entails cutting a cross into the bark of a tree to commemorate the lost of loved ones, and keep their soul from coming back to haunt them. The way the rite usually plays out is that, on the way to the cemetery, the funeral procession stops at a certain tree, and usually a male descendant cuts the cross into the bark.
The campfire site is located by a small forest lake, Lake Alumati. The place is well hidden naturally and may be difficult to find, because the hills conceal the campfire site and the lake. However, when you find it, it is a nice surprise, as it is a very lovely place.
The campfire site is located in a naturally beautiful place, where the foaming waters of the Koiva river flow by. The place is also constantly changing, as the bank in the river bend is gradually worn away by the water. A wonderful place for recreation and enjoying the beauty of nature.
