Through personal stories, interviews and photos, our hope is that a view of the island will emerge as it does when you are sailing toward it. Although many of the stories are summery anecdotes from decades past, Tankar is home all seasons – its bright summer days and gentle breezes give way each year to freezing landscapes as the island dons its winter wardrobe until liberated by springtime. And even as the seasons change, there is always someone visiting Tankar.
However, though the fishermen, lighthouse keepers and sea pilots are long gone, their children and grandchildren, as well as visitors and island residents, still hold Tankar’s history close to their hearts as the magical beams of the lighthouse continue to sweep across it.
Happy Tankar-moments dear followers!
