We had another beautiful campsite last night.

We used their washing machine to wash clothes, but the dryer kept tripping the breaker. The morning was warm & sunny & windy, so the clothes dried quickly on the clothesline.

The fjord scenery changed to wide expanses of brown silt & dirt due to Vatnajökull, Europe’s largest glacier. Giant white, blue, & clear chunks of ice bob around in Glacier Lagoon, with the glacier in the background. How big does it have to be to qualify as an iceberg? Am I holding an iceberg?

Nearby is a beach where the sand is very, very fine & very, very black.

We pulled into two places for the night. Both were very filled up, which was the first time we’ve encountered so many people at campsites. So we decided to drive another 45 minutes & take our chances. We ended up at yet another beautiful & sparsely populated campground. We are just across the road from the coastline. The hills are green & covered with Nookta purple lupine, & the fog has just rolled in.

Your trip continues to be spectacular! Waterfalls, lush greenery, and black lava. Are you sure you aren't in Hawai'i? (LOL) The serenity at a sparse campsite is super to go with that scenery! Love it. Enjoy!
