May 21: Utö – foggy morning

The next morning, on our last full day there, started out foggy again, and the sun revealed itself gradually.

The sun just emerging. I don't remember what or how big that rectangular object in the middle is.

Dew-bedraggled dandelions, already done blooming by then. Covered in those vivid orange-and-black beetles!

The first distressing of the village bench.

The culprit (maybe), observing with impunity.

The ocean view between James and Brian, while we were all sitting around the edge of an empty turret.

From the cemetery (with one of its new benches): the fog lifted off just enough to spy the lighthouse.

The view from the south shore, with a bench nestled into the rock terrace to look out on it, and with the fog mostly burnt away.
