We have run out of construction material. So, end of mission number one: The winter windows. To tell you the truth, we haven't installed the kitchen window, since it only takes a few minutes and we enjoy the view from the old ones.
Last look at the view.
The weather was excellent for working with the windows: A lot of sun and a mild wind. And we've been effective: all the windows were fitted before lunch.
The South West windows are installed!
The North-East window is installed!
Installing the ventilation tubes to the windows reminds somehow of Alvar Gullichsens Raba Hiff Powermachines. All the shimmering metal and the extra long tubes. So, Bonk spirit is strong here on Märket as well!
The installed ventilation reminds of Alvar Gullichsen's Raba-Hiff Powermachinery. (Go to Uusikaupunki for Bonk-museum.)
After lunch we met up with the seal on the Eastern coast. The seal was a real performer today. It was bathing in the sun, but when we approached it put up a show including diving, swimming and a bit of poo.
I guess we were a bit frightening, approaching from below the wind. But the show was so memorable, we just had to take a few pictures.
We're going to try the nets again today. The walk to the East got us thinking of a new tactic for setting the nets. Maybe tomorrow we'll have some other fish than canned tuna in our soup.

The other thing to do is to try some long exposures with the camera, one - two hours or something along those lines. We experimented a little yesterday, and today we've planned the spot and scene. Let's see how it works out - should be interesting to try at least.
The camera's not feeling quite all right after yesterday's wind and salty splashes, but I hope it holds up until weekend.
That's it for today, Aino and Harri calling good night from Märket!
