... sight and the blue hue is incredible, if only the rain would stop for a bit!! A quick beer before we're back in the car and heading for our preferred overnight stop in Vic, we roll into town around four, safe in the knowledge that there are two large hotels here and we can collapse into either one of them.....

It is Iceland's deepest lake and it continues to get bigger each year as pieces break off the Vatnajökull ...
