Cliff-Walking in Sumba

Day 14 of my travels with The Clipperton Project around the Faroe Islands.

Today a few of us went walking from the tiny town of Sumba, through some fields, and around a stunning cliff face… and almost making it to Lopra before taking the bus back to Vágur!

But first a good morning selfie… or two!!

This guy was brilliant! He talked to us for a while about the sheep they keep here. Those little lambs next to him lost their mama :( but he is caring for them while they grow up. (photo pinched from Mhairi Law)

I’m not sure what this stuff was… but I could quite easily see it growing under the sea… perhaps encrusting the crown of a swimming mermaid…

That little town you can see in the distance is Lopra… with the long winding road down… we didn’t quite make it all the way, and had to run down the grassy hills to catch the bus!!

A beautiful spot to stop for lunch. I love sitting somewhere where I can dangle my feet off the edge.

We caught the bus in time! and headed back to Vágur.
