Early this week, the first 2018 lambs of the remote island Stóra Dímun made it into the Faroese news. Soon, there will be lambs all over the archipelago, living, energetic balls of wool, racing across meadows, climbing hillsides and blocking village roads. The cheerful duo that posed for my photograph at this time of the year comes from Eysturoy.
No mistake about it: Faroese lambs are not familiar with “basic keep still and Cheese! virtues”. In order to get the picture you've hoped for, you're gonna need to have a lot of patience. On top of this, lambs are animals, not toys. So don’t touch, lift up or chase them. The local farmers and owners will appreciate your thoughtful approach. Bye for now, dear reader, Facebook follower, northern country life enthusiast, friend, city dweller, islander and tomorrow’s traveller. My Faroe Islands ynskir øllum einar gleðiligar páskir. Happy Easter! See you around, in the Faroe Islands and on Anja’s blog.
