Pocket Harbor, Faroe Islands

  1. Looks like room for one ship at a time at the dock and it either backs in or backs out.

    1. Plenty of room. Just wait for high tide and you can pull the boat out of the water and unload it on the road. Plenty of room on the roads for at least 15-20 decent sized boats.

      Photo is at low tide, of course. High tide will come up to near the bottom of that little shack.

  2. I wonder what the National Tree is for the Faroe Islands? (I don't think there *are* any trees in the Faroes... as least I can't recall seeing any in the pics, which makes me wonder where the lumber comes from for their houses.)

    1. Think about that Stanley. Maybe that's where all of the trees went... Hmmm? (Insert Appropriate Smiley Face Here) Cheers

    2. On other islands like the Faroes the houses are built partially from disassembled wrecks. There are a few islands that the roofs are actually upside down hulls on short walls.

  3. Doesn't it have a 14 foot tide?

    1. Or more. High tide would be under that white building. Low tide is about when the photo is taken.

      Lived on the California coast when I was young. And the marina my dad had his boat at would lift the boats over the water and lower them to the top of the swells and release. Made for quite a wild ride if the seastate was 'frisky'.

    A neat, snug, and seemingly prosperous village. What is the industry or business there? Can fishing support such a modest but nice accommodation?
