Oura daymark

The Oura daymark is situated in the very stony archipelago outside Merikarvia.

I visited the Oura archipelago in July 2018 on a little trip from Merikarvia to Kristinestad/Kristiinankaupunki.

The Oura daymark was built on the small Pookikari island in 1856 to lead seafarers to the pilot station on the neighbouring island (second picture).

The Pookikari island is quite small and very stony.

Position: N 61° 49,649' E 21° 19,878'
