Morning was cloudy and soft fog surrounded and circled us for all sides. On sunday morning breakfast time is flexable - and perhaps longer. Every one has slept well, after first long day and relaxing sauna. Chatting over the porrige portions, while sipping hot koffee, working plans for the day where shared, as well the menu of the day. Eating here is not a minor thing - despites it gives the energy needed, it is also a pleasure to gather together round the table, and enjoy simple but delicious food.
All of the sudden a boat appeard on southern side harbour, Kee Erikson - one of the last real lighthouse keepers, paid a visit here with friends. They where on a tour and going to visit Understen lighthouse later on, wich is the closest neighbourg here on the swedish side. He is piece of living history of light house, full of stories and details from the days of manned here.
When they where about to leave, two more boats came in sight from the mist - a rush on a foggy day like this was not expected! This time we got here two families from Brändö, and they got a guided tour round the islet. Happy guest left the shore really impressed about the important voluntary work FinnishLighthouse Society do here.
Perhaps the most demanding thing constructors did today was lifting up new stairs behind the machine room. Those heavy steady stairs will ease the way up to the buildings, also transporting goods. They are much more safe than old stairway in front of the fasade.
In the afternoon grey clouds get thicker and it started to rain. Normal daily routings went on in- and outside, no matter the weather. Brave girls did dishes outside in the bad waether. Warm sauna was really a pleasure in such a damp day when moist is also inside remarkable thing!
