Further in the evening, the quality of the light changes again. The colors are soft and somehow eerish! That also means that it is time to go to the restaurant! Sorry, I have no photo of our glorious meal as the only one that was taken is too dark. I am not giving it as a restaurant tip as I feel it is outdated and of no significance
Almost all the houses in the island has been put down in 1953 by a powerful earthquake except in Fiskardo; It is the only place where the old houses, some of the XVIIth, are still standing. Moreover, the whole village has kept its look, with the way the houses are arranged around the bay, with narrow, crooked streets.
At the beginning of the evening, the see becomes very quiet and the surface of the sea is still. That allows photos of some nice reflections.
When we walked back, the restaurant had no customers yet but as we had now booked, we did not worry and felted comfortable about tonight: we had a table waiting for us and two lobsters for our party of 10!
The village is small and the quay is not very long. It is time to come back to our boats. They are on the other side of the bay and look very small compared to all other boats. Two have a white hull and the third (mine) a red hull. You can see them in the middle of the photos.
On their small boats, fishermen village do not fish far from the harbor, They most of the time go fishing early in the morning, come back at the end of the morning with a bucketful of fishes if they have been lucky and the afternoon is for fixing nets, drying nets, folding nets in a never ended job. Every local seems to be busy with his own net!
At the end of the evening, the quays are still very quiet and allow a peaceful wandering to watch at the local fishing boats. The largest are still very small fishing boats ! Later in the evening, it will become busier!
Is it a lighthouse or a street-lamp ? Given its size, to call it a lighthouse (with no house !) would be presumptuous. Though, even if it acts as a street-lamp it is more than that and is at the same time a navigation light. And occasionally a diving-board !
The boats of our party of three are moored in front of the quay while the restaurant is waiting after us (first photo)
Second photo: the restaurant has only a few tables, we have better to book for the evening!
Photos 3 and 4 are close ups on the three small boats of our party. The shortest is 16 feet and the largest 21 feet.
