Day 13 of my travels with The Clipperton Project around the Faroe Islands.
Today we were wandering around the small town of Hvalba.
A small group of us had wanted to visit the only coalmine on the islands, which was located just a little outside of Hvalba… but sadly when we wandered into town in search of information, there was none to be found! and we couldn’t quite figure out how to reach the place. So… we went for a walk instead.
And a beautiful walk it was, well worth sticking around for.
Yup. That is the little island we saw the other day. We’re now just a lot further to the left of where we were yesterday.
This was a wonderfully odd little farm just on the way to the harbour! full of weird little animals…
I walked down this pretty little harbour, and sat on the edge of the rocks to eat my lunch… after being chased by sheep who wanted by sandwich!!
Finally a walk along the beach to collect some more bits and pieces for jewellery making…
And back to The Johanna… tonight sailing off back to Vágur for a few days….. but first a bit of cheeky climbing up the rigging for a couple of our crew!!
And where would I be without some sexy pictures of the ship’s ropes and riggings. Love me some ropework ;)
And off we go!!
Today’s journey was very all over the place and not very calm at all! A lot of us were very rather ill by the end!! We had 50 knot winds battering us about, and rather big swells as a result! I still hadn’t figured out my strategy, and felt like total shit by the end of this journey!!
This was the end of my photos from that day. When the boat was tipping enough to allow water in, and I couldn’t move an inch without feeling like I wanted to hurl, it was time to put the camera away!!
But luckily Lea Kannar was filming a timelapse of this journey… if you follow this link (it may not work as I think it’s a private FB, but still worth a nosey if you can!).
More to come soon!
