It was raining last night. Morning was cloudy and wind has turned to south-west. During the day sun came out and wind stopped almost completely. What a wonderful weather!
After yesterdays "invasion" the island was very quiet. Altough at times machines were running. Men cut the old boatsheds roof, again. They made big sheet metal pieces into smaller ones. They also grinded metal rails in the ceiling in first floor to remove rust. A hard and very dusty job.
At night we saw a big bird with long neck and long legs. It was gray and its chest was white. The bird was walking in water in the old harbour. Our guess is its a haikara/häger. This morning the bird was still on the island. What is it waiting or where is it going?
What a Saint Peter´s catch just from one net!
Yesterday men laid fish net in the sea. Today when wind calmed down, they rowed to lift the nets up. We were really suprised of the enormous catch! Wow! And with only one net! Fourtheen whitefish, one cod, one trout and a little flunder. We released the flunder to crow bigger. The boys are experienced fishermen. They knew how to handle fishes. And soon we loaded the freezer with cleaned fishes. Now we surely know what we will eat rest of the days. Perhaps already tonight!
It is nice to be a fisherman´s friend!
