      ... weather is too cold to make use of it. Akureyri is the main gateway for whale watching in the North and also has boats heading to Greenland. It would be a great place to base yourself for a few days to really explore this area but we don't have time to do much other than visit shops and the few tourist areas in the town. Tomorrow we head off back to the West of the island and, all being well, will end up at the Snæfellsnes ...

      ... Today I went to the local pool at Reykjahlid - warmish outdoor pool and two glorious hot pots - much closer than the Nature Baths (4km away - a bit far if you have to get back by lunchtime to pack away your home & get the only bus of the day) and much cheaper.
