The water also at Märket continues to be really low. New stones are found every day and the surrounding area changes on daily base.
The temperature both outside +5 and inside +15 are still comfortable. Even the wind 10 – 15 m/s is good, and who wouldn´t enjoy watching the waves.
Today we got more birds to the island– purple sandpiper (Calidris maritima).

Monday morning and no sun, but fresh sea air.
All things from outside needs to be moved inside “Venevaja” or “Alamakasiini” other vice winter sea will take them.
Also the engine room is taken care of.
Even the days are getting shorter looking from suns perspective – every day we still have time to enjoy the beauty of the peaceful Island.
