So, here it is, the last night on Märket. Today we were fortunate to have a change in the weather pattern. The clouds parted before noon and the rest of the day we had sunshine.
First, the wind was almost nonexisting and then started to blow from the south. During the day the wind picked up in strength and now there is a steady breeze. We finalized some work, Markku painted the final finish for the lighthouse staircase handrail. We also got some last minute work to do, such as reisolating the plastering from the new window frames of the south-east side.
We also lifted with Markku the rubberboat off the water and carried it into the boathouse. We also packed the lighthouse society´s shop into boxes and will take the stuff with us tomorrow.
Our fishing was a bit more successful. Nets that were in the sea over the night had cought one herring, one perch and nicely one trout. Unfortunately, the trout was only 35 cm long and thus we released it.
It is now completely dark outside, the generator is humming and we are having a cup of tea in the kitchen. It has been very nice to stay here and it is clear that this place is worth saving for future generations.
Yours Markku and Jussi
