Short stop for supplies in supermarket in Vik & visit to the little church as we'd promised we would. Peter from the church in Ebrington, Cotswolds has created a world wide link of churches & this is one of them. Set off across the vast black sand plains & stopped at another area filled with stone cairns created by travellers for good fortune on their journey.

... doing this, as I will be getting my fill of this type of adventure in the next two weeks on the ship. The Glacier lake is very impressive though and I took it in from several different locations. The best spot by far is at the entrance to the lake where there is a traffic jam of icebergs waiting to exit the lake under the main vehicle bridge and then out into the atlantic ocean.
