... has persuaded Kristberg to allow us to go 'off Piste' so to speak, with an unscheduled visit. Kris only agrees if we are all sworn to secrecy so this must go no further! So, we're once again on a rough gravel road heading for Hljˇaklettar or 'Echo Rocks'. Kristberg strides off ahead of the group, assuring us that it will be an easy walk.

This was one of the highlights of the last few days, as we we had the place to ourselves - dog excepted. Erin made us soup for lunch which was great before taking us back to the car for the drive home where we saw a porpoise (from a distance).
