The day was perfect, after a week of three home cooked meals each day in Torshavn, we set off for a ferry ride to another island nearby.
Drive on, or walk on, the service is pretty great. An open deck above offers photographers a perfect perch, plenty of gorilla tripod photo opportunities. Inside comfortable seats, plenty of snack bar style food to eat, maybe even beer….. check me on that! Is there beer? Wine? I think so… can’t remember. Go fish!
The village was a short ride from the ferry, thankfully the car did not get flooded, not that this happens… do cars flood sometimes in a ferry ride?
A short drive and we arrived in the village of Husavik to visit a friend.
Husavik is stinking amazing. It’s like Hanauma Bay of The Faroes, super beautiful!
Interesting fact: The ocean temperature in the Faroe Islands is surprisingly, not very cold. The sea is comfortably swimmable for anyone who has imagined joining the polar bear club. A few million rock points offer various breaks that are charted by local fishermen. If you surf, hire a fishing boat to hit breaks would be my advice.
But, back to Husavik, back to the love advice.
Traveling with a girlfriend, her child, my daughter, we landed upon Husavik, a cascading bay you can probably see on my pinterest on the board Faroe Islands.
It was amazing, the beach, the ocean, the ancient stone houses with grass roofs, Braveheart style Freedom Mel Gibson man! This place is amazing.
We sat down for tea in a nice young ladies house, my girlfriend knew her for life, and a little chatting up.
After several hours enjoying this calm village, the four of us headed for the car, as the next ferry was leaving in a short time.
Walking toward the car, the friend came outside and shouted “Goodbye, Nothing Lasts Forever”!
She was right…
