We woke up to a calm beautiful day. Hopefully, tomorrow will be as calm.
How quick can the weather changes be on the reef!
After breakfast, we finished the backlog of diary entries we built up when the generator was not working. The generator died 20 second after we had transfered everything.
Esko wrote the paper diary and Jon started preparing for the funeral of our little friend. Sadly, another bird died in the morning. We buried them both and had a quiet moment.
Rest in peace.
Then we celebrated Esko's birthday. We had a small, but very ascetic, party in the "museum" room. Esko reflected over Märket being quite an original place for celebrating one's 60th birthday. Esko is now planning to celebrate his 70th birthday on Märket with his family.
The generator died again. This time it was smoking so bad that we dared not start it again.
We are now, for the third time, preparing to leave Märket. Thank you Märket, you let up experience something only Märket can give.
We leave beriched with an experience for life and sweet memories to treasure. Märket has shown us its many faces including storm and calm, beauty and roughness, sun and rain, isolation, birds and seals, life and death. With a sad mind, we are happy to go home to our families.
Thank you Märket! Jon and Esko over and out.
