Monday is beginning for all new. The second working week has started with hard wind, about 14m/s from north, no worries, we are both accustomed to wind and rain.
After the breakfast we had to check the lighthouse area to see that everything is OK after stormy night; that boats and things are where they should be. They were.
Before 10 coffee we had cleaned compost, washed the dishes, checked the area and carried firewood up to lighthouse. On the coffee break we had discussion about our departure from Märket next Saturday. The weather forecast have promised hard wind from North (14m/s) and we thought that we can stay a few days longer, perhaps one week is possible if necessary. But that is the limit because we wouldn´t have enough food after that.
Before noon Teemu desided to bake cinnamon buns, yes fresh buns! For the lunch or merely for snack we had a lime marined whitefish with ryebread. Then we took same photos of the storm and checked the area again, all OK.
After that we took traditionel siesta which every seaman who stays long period on the sea will have! After coffee we had service work in lighthouse's machine room; the tail pipe of one genator had a leak. After that we ate dinner: bouillebaisse a la Märket with ryebread. Then bathing in Little Märket and after that listening radio: some music and 20.30 news on the net - and Good Night!
Seppo and Teemu
