By the time we arrived at the cabin on Friday evening, it was already getting dark, so I did not get any work done.
It was a bright sunny morning on Saturday and the temperature reached a high of 12 degrees. Unfortunately there was a storm in the mountains and this meant that we had very very strong winds.
I built a new saw-horse
and spent the majority of the weekend sawing up and splitting logs.
While sitting and drinking coffee in the veranda I was amazed to see the boat which Emma had built the previous weekend, floating past on the lake.
Teres’ father needed help at his cabin lifting up a new wind turbine to generate electricity for his cabin (which wasn’t easy in a such a strong wind).
He then came to our cabin to help me remove a damaged brake cable on our trailer.
On Saturday evening as it was starting to get dark, 6 Northern Long-tailed Tits appeared feeding in the trees. Unlike last weekend, this time I managed to get a photograph of one.
On Sunday morning I worked with Teres’ father again. This time we felled some trees and built a new board-walk to the fresh water spring where we go to collect water.
We are hoping that we will get at least one more weekend at the cabin before more snow comes.
