There is a famous song in Estonia about boatman of Viljandi, based on the legend: "Long-long ago, as a young man he had once taken a young girl across the lake on a summer evening and fallen hopelessly in love with the girl's blue eyes. Nobody knows what happened on the lake, but on the other side, the girl just waved him good-bye and left... However, the Boatman, a grey old man now, is said to row on the lake to this day, longing to see those wonderful blue eyes again."
I remembered this song in Viljandi, taking this photo.
Viljandi järve ääres seda pilti nähes tuli millegipärast kohe paadimees meelde...
