Another day, another dollar, this is true unless you are a volunteer lighthouse keeper. Today the wind continued from NE with 10m/s and we completed our tasks to upkeep and repair the Märket lighthouse. Tatu fixed and cleaned the rubber boat. Katariina and Jake did an excellent job building a shelf to the boatshed. Jens also started a shelf building project. The project outcome looks promising.
Exceptionally, all tourists who visited Märket today were Finns. A boatload came with a big sailing boat from Naantali, and they were enthusiasticly photographing every aspect of the rock. They thanked us and left for their ship for a nice dinner.
Our visitors from Naantali back on board
We found some original paint from the cellar while cleaning it. Some ideas were heard to paint the lighthouse after finishing the window repairs. Jens and Katariina removed the sink and the wooden plate holding it from the sauna.
Jake is soon going to try the "deodosoap" we encountered during the tidying of the cellar. Tomorrow we will report if Jake is still with us or is his skin fragrance evolved with this special product.
