My bus from
The ferry was waiting to take me across to Skopun on Sandoy. It would be a 30 minute ride. This ferry was about midway, in size, between the Nolsoy ferry and the Suduroy ferry.
There were maybe 15 or so people and at least as many cars and 6 or 7 large trucks carrying goods. We set sail on time, the ferries are good about that, here.
Now, the two previous ferries were a picnic compared with today’s crossing to Sandoy. The weather was bad and the sea was rough. The waves were crossing our path making for a bobbing side to side, quite exaggerated for several periods. We would all just grab our things and look at each other, during those times. Those times didn’t last long but kept coming. During them the roll was a bit scary. I wondered about the weight distribution during this, I don’t know why. It wasn’t like I could do anything!!! I’m just being dramatic, I guess.
