The lighthouse island of Tankar

”To me, Tankar is like paradise: a desolate island with its sea-buckthorn berries, a whole cluster of small cabins and jetties, the lighthouse, the piloting station – and floating over all this the smell of salt, drawing one’s thought to the bottomless richness of the Gulf of Bothnia.” Hovilainen, 1945.
