Fishing tour continue.... June 29, 2014

About 7 am we went out on the sea to collect the nets and the fishes.
It was nice weather and the wind was about 4 meters per second. 
What a lovely feeling being out on the sea so early in the morning!
We decided to take the fishes out from the nets first later, back on the island, when some of them were quite big and difficult to remove. 
Oh what a good fishing luck we had!!!! So lovely!!!

These are the different fishes that we got.
Id, mort, braxen, abborre and Gadda.

All together we got 25 fishes,but Brito cut and throw 12 of them to the 
seagulls later on when they seamed to be so hungry.
Lucky birds! 
In the afternoon we made a lovely meal of 4 abborre fishes+ new potatoes + a sauce called "pickavaton" and the rest of the fishes Mam put into the freezer.

Fishing Tour, Finland, June 27, 2014

We Finnish women can do almost everything ( in comparison I know women from other countries who don´t even know how to sew on a button) so yesterday we, my Mama and I, decided to go fishing.We have been out here on my Mam´s island since Thursday and we were also here during the midsummer week but it was quite cold weather then. Only +6 degrees in the night! It should be about +18-22 in the midsummer,but the weather is not longer like it used to be. Today it was sunny and about +16  degrees of Celsius.

Anyhow, Brito has never been fishing with nets so we decided he can be the film team so that you can take part of the adventure. We got this idea of going fishing about 8 o´clock yesterday in the evening and started checking out the nets to be sure they would be easy to put out. We used three nets that are about 5 meters deep and the wind was only about 5-6 meters per second when we finally, about 9.30 in the night, went out on the sea and laid them.

He,he! The life on the island is like a real fisherman life! We listen to the seaman forecast on the radio at last 3 times a day or more! It´s the weather that dictates your stay and program and if you don´t take responsibility and listen to the weather forecast you can end up being stranded for days not getting back to the mainland. It´s open sea outside here and the waves can get real big .And if they say it will get windy you, of course, do not put the nets into the sea...and if they talk about rain for many days you probably prefer to go home to her real house where you can live normal.

Everything worked out fine as you can see in the video clip below. :-)
If I just get time tomorrow I will edit the next video that is from about 7 am this morning when we went out to collect the catch.

Striking Serpent - Hoggorm

About a week ago Birgitta, my Mams neighbour, killed a dangerous snake on the road outside the boat storage at Mams house. Brito took this video clip.
These snakes are very dangerous so now we wear wellingtons if we have to visit the storage.
Good luck was that Birgitta saw it, who is brave enough to kill them, because if we had seen it on our own the three of us (Mam, Brito and me) for sure would have been screaming like crazy and nobody had killed it.
We are all very afraid of them. 
Oh I still get a lot of goose-bumpers when I watch this video clip.
