We started the day with hot chocolate & a bagel in this school-bus-turned-cafe right next to our campground. Isn’t it cute?


The basalt formations at the beach are dramatic.


The water at Skogafoss falls straight down over the edge, with nothing to impede its descent. I walked up quite close to it just fine...until the wind turned, & I got pretty soaked! It was worth it, though.


We enjoyed a hot lunch of Volcano Soup (beef goulash soup) & bread at a quaint roadside cafe.


In the hot pot at today’s town pool, a couple from Reykjavik chatted us up, It was really fun to interact with some locals.
