It was a sunny morning, wind had turned to south. We are making observations of the signs of coming spring. There was a few “pajunkissa”, willow buds, a clear sign of Easter, in the only tiny tree on this reef.
Migrating birds pass the reef and some even land here to take a rest before they continue to the mainland. Pete counted five eagles altogether flying around the lighthouse.
After the regular morning walk on the beautiful cliffs, we try to find some beauty also from the mens world in the light house.
Our main task, cleaning of the boiler room, has come to the second step. A team of three, two with brushes and one with buckets full of warm water, makes wonders.
The machine room looks like a masculine play ground. There is still some challenge for the next crews.
In the evening the wind is getting harder. The chain of our last buoy was broken and we just watch the buoy to float ashore. The rescue will be rather easy since it is seems to be coming straight to the south harbor.
