Last night was clear, the full moon spread its light over the islet and the stars appeared for the first time during this visit. Ursa Major, Kassiopeia and Andromeda were in the north. The constellation of Swan in the middle of the Milky Way was especially impressive. It faces south as if it predicted the migration of the birds for the winter. The sign of the Scorpion is still visible in the south but will also soon disappear for the winter.
We continued our daily routines on Märket. The main ladder is now painted, except for every other step. This way we are still able to climb the ladder to the lighthouse. Hopefully it will be dry tomorrow so we can get this job finnished.
It has been partly cloudy today, with occational afternoon showers. In the evening the wind calmed down, so we went for a boat ride around the islet. During the ride grey, rainy clouds approached from the southwest and covered the sun and the light blue sky.
Evening at sea
Today there were no visitors on the islet, but a new group of divers came to explore the shipwreck nearby - wonder if they found a treasure. At least we have found a treasure worth preserving on Märket.
