Well except this, this happened last night on my way to the campground.
But all of this, it happened today.
Then I ran into these guys on a hike.
That had desolate views like this.
And some lovely Icelandic poppies...I grabbed some seed pods to try in the garden.
I found some low growing blueberries and added them to my morning Skyr as I wandered around the grounds of Husafell.
There is a church that has stood on the same grounds for the last 1000 years. It was quite a powerful place.
And the carved rocks only made it more special.
And this all happened by 10am. I had a dip at my first hot pot/swimming pool where I'm sure I broke all sorts of cultural norms by taking my shoes off a the wrong time and getting wet feet in the dressing room, alas there are no photos of that but it was good to warm up after a windy morning.
Then some backroads. I was mostly successful at not driving off the road, it's dangerous because you want to look in every direction but ahead.
I made it to the Goat Farm and that was so amazing it deserves a post or three of it's own.
All I'll say is that I adopted a goat for Heath & I, but we don't get to bring it home, it keeps living in Iceland but we help support it.
I picked Molli because she liked me...but this Little Man was also very sweet.
This is Johanna, the woman who has saved this goat breed, she has quite a special story, I'll tell you once my days return to normal amounts of fullness.
So all to leave you with is
the largest geothermal spot in the world, producing 180 liters of boiling water per second with a total production capacity of 62 megawatts. I left that last detail in for my husband and any Science Clubbers who might be reading this.
So this is where I'm at now, desperately charging my camera battery while my computer is on 10% battery left. Done with dinner and getting ready to drive for a bit to head to the Snaefells Peninsula.
See you soon!
