I går var det vaktskifte. Første vertskapsdag og -kveld for meg (Marit) vart berre idyll- inkludert teinedraging der eg fekk vere landkrabbe så langt vest det går an å komme. Så i dag var det tidleg opp og i arbeid: er vel rimeleg at eg fekk male rekkverket på det som fyrvert Knut i fjor kalla "Nye Steinsundbrua". No håpar eg at vekesoppdraget vert godkjent av brubyggjaren (eg har ikkje sølt maling på tredekket!!!) Litt gjestar, trim i fyrtrappene og vaffelsteiking har det også vore. Og no må eg lage ny røre til meir besøk i kveld…

Torsdag ble GOD-dagen! Noen av oss er litt mer landkrabber enn sjøvant, men nå har vi alle bestått krabbefiske, krabbe-rensking, båtkjøring, morgenbad, fisking, sløying og filetering av fisk. Bildene får tale for seg selv. 😂

Lørdag er de østlandske Utvær-guidene igjen klare for gjester 😉

På tirsdag gikk fire Oslo-byhøner i land her på Utvær. For en oppdagelsestur dette har vært så langt! Takk til forrige ukes verter Anne og Tor Arne for herlig mottagelse, og inspirerende opplæring. Vindtette klær var uniformen de første dagene, men solnedgangene fra toppen av fyret er magiske uansett vær ❤️.
