Waterfalls, Black Beaches and Walking, Walking Walking!!!!!

First thing this morning I stopped at the Skógafoss waterfall. It is quite powerful….the new raincoat from MEC got a good workout. From the base of the waterfall you can hike/climb up to the top. There are stairs but…… Oh my it was sure a workout. From there I ventured on to the Solheimasandur Plane Wreck. It was curious to see, but not sure it was worth the 4km or more round trip walk. However I also got to have some quiet time down by the water. I couldn’t resist putting my feet in the water; it did feel good after the walk.

I then took some time to explore the village of Vik, a nice little spot with a great spot for dinner. On the way to my guesthouse for the night, I drove through a lava field for many many kilometers. It was left from an eruption in 1783.

As for the walking, my Fitbit tells me I did just over 26000 steps for the day. A record I think, which is why I had that amazing Skyr cake for dessert. A few of the pictures are from the guest house that I stayed at last night, The Lindatúrn Guesthouse. It was a great place to stay and I highly recommend it.

I couldn’t resist…..yes it was dam cold

I can see why this is the number 1 restaurant in the Vik area. Great seafood soup, char, and skyr cake.

I made the climb to the top of the Skógafoss waterfall. A great leg workout.
