Some information of landing to Märket. There is two natural harbours with fixed hooks in the northern side of the island.
The southern side.
On the southern side there is about 2 meters deep, very narrow route without any buoy. There one can sail a small boat so near the island that only walking few meters in shallow water is needed for landing. In the picture in front of stony area is a small peninsula. The route comes to it's head about direction 0 degrees.
Anchoring on the southern side and then rowing with our small boat to land is one option as well. All these operations and actually everything in Märket is fully in our own responsibility. Posibilities of using any of early mentioned landing places is ruled totally by wind and waves. For example today, before evening none of these could have been an option. Surfboard for good surfer could have worked.
We got some stronger winds last night as expected. During the darkest hours wind was blowing so hard through my rooms (Karlberg´s hut) western wall that the closed door on the eastern side opened. At least ventilation was very effective.
Water running over the island
In the morning we were wandering around and admiring the power of waves. Actually we needed to be careful not to be washed away by waves. There was rivers running through the island from north to south. They were formed when huge masses of water roared up on land on the northern side. It's difficult to judge, but I would say that at least 10 to 20 percentage of the island was under the water. According to my theories the yellow moss on the stones exists on the areas where there is no water in normal strong winds. At least today wet and mossed areas were correlating well.
Today we have seen tens of seals all together. Maybe about ten of them have been lying on our island. I have seen so many seals that I'll leave next more careful reporting for following persons here.
If the sea allows, tomorrow heading back home,
