Faroes Photo Friday! (Part 1 of Lord-knows-how-many)

Hello dear readers!

Still fighting my way out of jet lag and re-entry pandemonium (dryer not working, cooktop has to be replaced, Madi is leaving for college tomorrow– you know, the usual) but I wanted to share some scenes from our Nordic adventure with you all. I’ll start with  the Faroe Islands portion, and who knows– I may drag this out for D*A*Y*S. Prepare for it to be be kinda photo-heavy around the ‘Bloomr for a while.

Annnnd we commence:

**This was the gorgeous view from out of the big picture window in the guest flat that was so generously offered to us by a friend of Jakup’s– we loved staying there, even if the washing machine did call me names.

**OK, what genius thought it was a good idea to put me behind the wheel of a Peugot for a week? I get lost in Nashville and I’ve lived there for 35 years AND can actually read the road signs. Yeah, it wasn’t always pretty but I didn’t wreck the car or kill anybody, so you know– win/win. And even though my eyes are kind of at half-mast in this photo, I swear I wasn’t drunk.

**This guy hung around outside our back door a lot. I have no idea what kind of bird this is– do you? I called him Pinocchio Seagull.

**A gorgeous Faroe Islands sunset. Honestly, I kept expecting to hear the theme from Lord of the Rings playing somewhere in the background the whole time I was standing there.

**You know what almost never happens while I’m driving down the street in Brentwood?   This:

**My pensive Madi– actually, if memory serves, she wasn’t contemplating the mysteries of the universe so much as she was watching Sponge Bob in Danish.

**Basically the Faroes are just one big photo op everywhere you look.


**Charlotte with Russ, wet and cold at a video shoot location.

**This is Russ’ performance at Summarfestival in Klaksvik– that’s Oli Poulsen rockin’ it hard behind him.

**Jakup Zachariassen plays tasty steel guitar licks so twangy you’d think he grew up in Nashville…

**One last scenic shot– more to come!

    Fantastic photos. Glad you arrived home safely even if it wasn’t via England! The bird is actually an oyster catcher.

    Oh my gosh! Now I want to go there! Thanks for sharing your family and your talent for capturing Fargo in its magnificent splendor! I can’t wait to see more ….

    *oops* I was so excited I messed up! (‘Faroe Island’ instead of ‘Fargo’) I have to be careful, I could end up visiting some skanky, desolate location and saying “Tori used photo shop!”

    It’s easy to see why the Taff family enjoys going to Faroe Island. The views are wonderful….and I just love those photos of the Taffs. I marvel at how the girls are growing up into beautiful ladies….and it only took two short years. Well, it sure seems that way.

    Keep those photos coming…..
