Crowded in Elduvík! The people of the village (15 registered permanent residents plus summer house owners) and several hundred visitors are celebrating Summarhugni, as the day progresses. A cozy summer get-together. Open church, guided village tours, photo exhibition and hitapottar (outdoor bath tubs or whirlpools). Guests, friends & families gathering in houses, gardens and a big party tent.
Slush ice, waffles, homemade cakes, dried fish, skerpikjøt (dry-aged Faroese lamb), all kinds of food, many people contributed. The credit for Summarhugni belongs to Bjarni Garðshorn, Alexandur Joensen and Beinta Dam. The idea has been born in Elduvík’s old school, a traditional meeting place for the villagers. Later on tonight: tug of war and barbecue. Gonna go now, back to the social gathering – in anticipation of another long day and short summer night in Elduvík.
