In the morning, the weatherman forecasted us a little bit sunshine, but one hour later the sky was gray again and gave small showers.
Wind is still blowing almost the same way than last evening. Last night it was quite strong as we heard it while sleeping. We were woken up by water showers coming in from the South end of the storage building where we sleep in a tent.
There is an old doorway to the storage building which has been blocked with board, but above the board block there is a big ventilation crack that allows water and wind come straight in.
There hasn't been any problems until last night because the waves haven't been this big. Luckily, the tent is waterproof! Today Marko blocked the crack some more. Let's hope ventilation works and water stays outside!
Today we took away nails from the wooden floor downstairs. Marko tried to saw old pipes loose, but it was quite difficult. Loosening the radiators was much easier and it's now done. Pipe and nail project shall continue tomorrow.
Working on the ground level.
Taking down the old heating system.
We decided to clean up places for the weekend as it's going to be the international lighthouse weekend and we hope to have many visitors here. There was a lot of sweeping to do and again we filled a few garbage bags with waste and dust.
Today we said goodbye to four radio amateurs as Martti, Pertti, Teemu and Rick got onboard with Bengt's Felicia and began their journey against mighty wind.
Bengt is a very skilful captain: in today's weather he just parked his boat beside the cliff and it looked like a walk in the park.
New radioamateurs: Simo (he is also a member of the Lighthouse Society), Tapani and Pasi had a minor setback right in the beginning as one of their laptop computer bags as well as Pasi's sleeping bag were shipped back to Eckerö by accident. Let's hope they get those important items back quickly!
The boys brought us a bottle of rum. We toasted for a safe sea journey and new friendship.
... and how to do with it! Cheers and have a nice journey home!
Weather is clearing, temperature at eight PM is 18,5 degrees celcius. Wind is still strong and the waves are big. Now it's nice to go for a swim in the safe lagoon.
