As You can see from the photo we have now done all that we can for fixing the roof of the machinery house, so we are waiting for the tinsmith to arrive.
Quite a lot happened today: First the engine of our motorboar broke and it took quite a while from Jake and Jari K got it fixed. Then the coastguard arrived at Märket with the superfast rubber boat just to see how we are.
As normal guests today we had a very nice family today from Sweden. We did of course take them around Märket telling about the history and showing the lighthouse. Lighthouses were very special for the young couple because they had changed rings in one of the Swedish lighthouses. They had planned visit Märket for a long time and now they arrived in a perfect weather. We were also very lucky to hear the seals singing. That was something special to our quests.
Today we had so nice weather that we had lunch outside and we even made fresh pancakes in the sunset. Lighthouse Society´s vice chairman Petri Porkola arrived with a sailing boat to join us for some pancakes. You can see his photos of lighthouses for example in the lighthouse calender.
