... stuck behind a log. She would look at the thrower and then pick the ball up herself and drop it on the other side so it could roll down the hill. She reminded me of our Barney at home, tenacious.

We crossed the large bay of Hunafloi, then, skirting the peaks around Skagastrond, we next came to Skagafjordur and the islands of Drangey ...
