Morning coffee outside, that was peachy.
The whole day was so tranquil and soft blue...
We continued indoor painting. Our chef got out of kitchen too – to paint the kitchen.
Was it the sweet weather that brought us guests or what? Anyway four guys from the Finnish Coast Guard vessel Tursas came to see the lighthouse.
Joni and Camilla first and then Ari and Jussi landed the islet. Veikko showed them places and then we had some coffee together. Camilla and Joni where interested in our job.

Coast guard is leaving...
Coast guard is at these waters to watch around while Finnish army evacuates explosives deep down under the sea from a Russian U-boat that got it's grave here under the second world war.
Yesterday's wind from south brought many birds to the islet. We have seen Ruddy Turnstone (Arenaria interpre, Karikukko, Roskarl); Mute Swan (Cygnus olor, Kyhmyjoutsen, Knöl swan); Arctic Tern ( Sterna paradisaea, Lapintiira, Silvertärna); Black-headed Gull (Larus ridibundus, Naurulokki, Skrattmås); Bar-tailed Godwitt (Limosa lapponica, Punakuiri, Myrspov).
