Yesterday the stormy weather was disconnecting the WEB during allmost whole day. I had to make all writing early enough to be lucky with the WEB, and that is why my story goes daily about from 6 pm to 6 pm in these days.
The evening was beautiful. I was sitting on the terrace in the sunshine. The first two pictures show the sunset, beautiful isn't it. Northwestern horizon, swedish side, shows the sunset and upcoming weather, and a big ship heading south.
The second picture shows the eastern horizon and beautifully colored clouds over Åland islands.
Now I will come to this thursday. I went out in the middle of nigth. There was storming of course but no clouds, the sky was full of stars, Stella Polaris, The Bears and plenty of others, and one very bright star or planet in southwest direction and in halfway between horizon and zenit, perhaps the planet Mars. It was something you can't see in the city.
I was sitting in the kitchen and looking out to the sea. The waves were rolling just into my direction and white-foamed catching the reef. There is a short cove into this direction, which we call South-harbour. There was like a tide, water coming ang going. The old seafarers tells that every seventh wave is big. I began to count, yes, really so it is, the tide did come and go in resonance with every seventh. May be there in the swelling sea is different kind of waves, some of them are short and some long. Long means here the distance between a crest of a wave to the crest of a nextone, not the width of a wave. If there is the "usual" waves and seven times longer waves, so it is easy to understand the rule of every seventh wave. The bigger sometimes rises the usual waves and in meanwhile lowers them.
Maybe you wonder why I am telling about stars and seawaves, but I have made a degree of open-sea-navigator and I am interested in them. The afternoon is easy to tell - rain, sunshine, rain and shunshine etc., and the storm is here all the time.
