Already at 05.50 Märket was awake! In the morning we were listening
radio and heard that all the miners in Chile are back on the ground. Good to hear some great news while drinking morning coffee. We were
wondering how does it feel to spend 70 days under the ground. Sounds
Then we planned our day. Seppo went outside and said today we have to work inside due to the weather conditions. After coffee Seppo started
to clean the engine room and washing the kitchen floor. At 10 o'clock coffee break we realised that the storm is really coming. When exactly,we didn't know, but on afternoon was supposed. After coffee (yes, we drink a lot of coffee here, but here it does taste better than nowhere else) we checked our brand new wind geneator and carried
rest of the things to the shelter. In Märket it is well known that the
wawes have enormous power and the sea really can take all the objects from the yard. So took we boats, water boiling pot ect. inside.
At middays coffee break we were having freshly baked buns. Since it
was time for the storm, we decided to check once more if everything
was ok. Then 14 o'clock it started, I mean storm. First the wind was
blowing from north-west and then from north, even 22 m/s! As you can
see from the pictures, it is good that the breakwater was repaired
With Little Märket...
...and without Little Märket!
We took many brilliant photos of storm and it was so exiting that we
didn't remember to eat anything before 18.00. Then we listened on the
radio the ice hockey tour, news and forecast for tomorrow. Now it is
time to go to sleep, the sound of the storm as a lullaby...
