Floating Islands
Poor handmaiden Kaie worked in manor. Her beauty was noticed also by landlord. Lord demanded Kaie to be his lover. Kaie did not agree with that, because she already had her darling.
Lord was very angry. Once sneaking close to Kaie, when she lifted a big bundle of straw and suddenly he pushed Kaie into lake. Folks were telling that they wanted to pull Kaie out of the water, but she hold from water plants and said „ I rather drown than become lord’s property“.
So Kaie went down and her bundle of straw fallen apart and pieces of straw formed beautiful floating island on the Lake Porkuni.
These islands can be seen also today. That spot on the shore where Kaie drowned is called Kaieallika.
Heard from Ed. Taht in 1960.
