Seven new excited lighthouse keepers arrived on Märket before noon and met five happy and energetic women and two cute dogs. To Päivi, Jake, Satu, Angela and Esa Märket was a familiar place, but Raija and Aura were just staring at the magnificent Märket eyes wide open and listening Marika's wonderful last guided tour together with some tourists.
Together with the new keepers came Untamo Eerola with his professional looking cameras and equipments. His intentions were to shoot the active lighthouse enthusiastics doing renovation work, for example with the beautiful old windows. Untamo also shooted Satu telling Aura and Raija interesting stories about Märket's history. Hopefully we'll see the ready film soon!
While Aura and Raija were familiarizing themselves with the everyday life on Märket, the others were already working hard with the windows and especially with the new tin roof of the boat house - we had some very hard professionals working on the roof. Even now, at half past nine in the evening, we can still hear some banging from outside.
Roof work continues with new professionals on duty
Märket has probably put a spell on the professionals as well and they do not dare to leave...
Best wishes from the new brave seven!
Satu, Raija, Angela, Aura, Päivi, Jake and Esa
