Godmorgen fra fyret😎 Fin, liten kuling fra NØ. Trosset vindguden i går kveld og hentet en håpefull familie på Homborsund brygge. Så i natt var folketallet 10, men flere mønstrer av i dag. Vinden skal løye, så det er bare å ringe fyrtelefonen for spørsmål og oppdatering om ledige rom og transport. 97101373 🤗
