Good Sunny Saturday my peeps! I hope it is sunny and not sweltering where you are… We finally had a break in the humidity and are enjoying sunshine without melting into a puddle. I didn’t partake last week but, since I have a Saturday off and no plans whatsoever, I thought, why not? Thank you, as always, to Karen and Josh for hosting this weekly party.
This week Pegman is back in Europe in the Faroe Islands in the Kingdom of Denmark. Your mission is to write up to 150 words inspired by the location. You can use the location supplied in the prompt, or you can browse for your own view of the Faroe Islands using Google Maps. You’ll find both street view and photo spheres at the location.
Once your piece is polished you can share it with others at the Linkup below. Reading and commenting on others’ work is part of the fun.
Choosing the Simple Life
Life was simple and real in Gasadalur. After years of living the supposed high life in Copenhagen as a real estate agent, Freja finally gave it all up. She never thought, when she got the listing for the property on the Faroe Islands, that she would find the ideal buyer in herself.
Her family tried to stop her, telling her it was no place for a woman to live alone. It was too rugged, wild, and isolated. How would she live? Her assurances were met with protestations.
Once she introduced them to Enok, they felt a small measure of relief. His name did mean dedicated and faithful, after all. He invited them into his home, fed them and assured them that Freja would never be unsafe with him around.
After they left, she thanked Enok for his help and went home.
He watched her walk away… I’ll woo her yet…
