The paddlers who arrived late last night continued their journey this morning. Two of them visited Märket also last summer at the same time in July. They overnighted in the Swedish side of the reef and were going to carry on to Åland archipelago. The day also brought two other paddlers who came from Signilskär and continued to Eckerö.
The harbour busy with paddlers
Märket was also visited by quite a few sailing boats today! First we had Swedish visitors who stopped by on their way to Turku archipelago and then a Finnish couple on their way to Maarianhamina.
Some of the window frames have been repaired: the dilapitated parts have been changed and the first frames got the original red paint. The work continues tomorrow and the day after and the day after and the day after…
Repaired windows with the original red paint
A beautiful old Viking sailing boat passed by the reef in the morning. Unfortunately they didn't came ashore, but we welcome them to visit next time!
Good night from Märket, till tomorrow!
