On day 3 it was sunny sunny sun sun sun. We decided to drive around some of the towns on Eysturoy, following the buttercup routes that we didn’t do on day 1. We then drove to Streymoy an visited some of the towns on there, including Saksun (above).
Saksun has 8 people living there, and one of them is clearly annoyed by the number of tourists visiting – around the church there were signs saying that if you trespassed he would phone the police.
After visiting the two main islands, given the nice weather, we decided to do the walk to Sørvágsvatn. Which is another walk you have to pay to do. The temperature on this day was 20 degrees, and kB got a little bit sun burnt – even though he had suntan creme on.
Driving around the Faroe Islands is really lovely, there isn’t much traffic at all and the roads are in really good repair. The only problem (and I use that term loosly) is that everything is so spaced out!
As much as a lot more people are vising the Faroe Islands, it still isn’t busy by any stretch of the imagination.
Buttercup routes are the more scenic routes on the Faroe Islands. They are labelled with a little buttercup so you know where they are when you are driving along.
Due to a lack of water, the waterfall wasn’t at it’s peak!
But it was also the only day where we got to see the sun actually set, so that was nice!
The third day in Croatia I’m not sure that we did a lot. Drank some cocktails, swan in the sea….
The sunsets were spot on though, fantastic view from the hotel and thus the beach.

Noticed that this bad boy had grown in my flower bed, so I decided to snoot him today. Also think I might have tomorrows photo sorted, and possibly that of the day after! Win!

Rainy heavily, sunny, windy, rain showers – we’ve had a mixed bag all weekend!

The last week of a half term is always nice. There is that feeling of ‘aaah not long to go’ so in a way you perk back up a bit. The second and third last weeks before a half term are always the worst because you know you still have quite a way to go.
This week I am mainly marking like a mad woman so that I can have the next week totally off from work, and driving to Leeds for a training course on Thursday. Oh how exciting 😉

The other day I received a message from Yahoo! asking me to submit some shots to their Project Weather.
In a nut shell as part of their Yahoo! Weather app they have an image which shows the weather conditions in the place where you are (or where you are looking at a weather forecast for), so if you happen to be in a place where I have taken a landscape shot and the weather conditions are the same as the ones in my shot then my image might show up! 🙂
