After visiting Burger King, we walked around the shopping mall and got Aimee some swimming goggles. Then we decided to do something a bit more cultural.
We'd spotted a monument on a hill above the town, so decided to walk up and have a look.
It turns out it was built in 1880, to commemorate the visit to the town in 1874 of the Danish king.
There is not much to the monument but the climb is well worth it for the wonderful views of Torshavn.
On the way back down we spotted a golden retriever with a couple of puppies in someone's back garden and stopped for a look.
A young couple were in the garden and invited us in to see the dogs.
It was a lovely and friendly thing to do and the dogs were beautiful, but stupid me didn't get any photos.
Except for the chilly drizzly weather we had a lovely time in Torshavn.Read more
