First notification in the morning was that seals had come to the small rocky island next to us. We made an agreement that we will wake each other up if we find or see any seals nearby. The seals stayed there for the whole day and we got some fantastic pictures through Reijo's telescope.
After the morning porridge we started our voluntary work. Jussi and Pekka were working on the roof. They did some cleaning and after that they started pitching the roof. The wind wasn't too strong so they could work there for the whole day.
Harri and Kati cleaned the "kitchen-to-be"-windows with the paintburner and the scraper. Windows looked nice after the cleaning up process and they are supposed to be left that way for the next volunteer group. They will know better how to operate with glassparts and painting. While doing the cooking, Mika and Tuula helped with the wood chopping and piling them up.
Elisa did the filling for the ceiling in the "kitchen-to-be" room and painted the old door from another side. Retu did all the general work with everyone else and in the afternoon he did the hoovering and general cleaning for the lighthouse (because of the visitors).
Today we had authorative visitors from Åland and Sweden: Peter Lindbäck, Governor of Åland, and his wife Marlene; Peter Egardt, Governor of Uppsala and his wife Lena; Ingrid Iremark, Consul General of Sweden in Åland, and her husband Thomas Thornquist; Tomas Karlsson, Managing Director of Eckerö Linjen and Bengt Granberg, long-term friend of the Lighthouse Society. Mika and Tuula baked some bread for the visitors and they had their coffee on the rock by the sea.
