Well, my fall from yesterday has left me a little sore this morning. I have quite the bruise on the hip from where I fell on my camera.
After this, we drove to the beach. Y
ou are supposed to be able to swim in the ocean - problem is we got there at low tide... which means we would've had to walk probably 3 km to get to the water - we didn't really have time so we looked at the beach, had a hot chocolate and got back in the car - our mission: finding a "hot pot" - a natural thermal bathing spot. We found one! We sat in the pot for about an hour, then made our way to a nearby restaurant for dinner. I had fish and chips - which was kind of gross. The batter tasted like chicken noodle soup! Fish and chicken noodle soup - not a great combo...
They say you should do something that scares you everyday. Well, fait accompli for today! Man! Driving those roads up and down and around mountains is a scary affair! The roads are way to narrow, there are no barriers between you and certain death if you go to close to the edge with your car... and when you meet a car and you are on the outside, let me tell you... not great for someone with a fear of heights! But I did it!
After dinner we got on the ferry to start heading back to Reykjavik. The camping is just beautiful! We are surrounded on two sides by mountains - the rocky mountain type! Then, we have water on the other side and a golf course on the fourth! Beautiful place - of course pictures don't capture such beauty.
Tomorrow we are off to the rocky mountains, trying to see the white tailed eagle, then we will hike up Mount Esja.
Photos to come!
