Today was all about nature watching. First we we t on a drive by the long lake next to town. Then we we t to see Hengifoss fall, which was too difficult to reach. We later started driving in the beautiful eastern fjords. We ended the day in the stunning village of Seydisfjordur, where we had an early dinner. Tomorrow we are off to the north.

So that's it, we have made our first visit to Iceland, the Icelandic people are lovely, they are relaxed, friendly and welcoming. The country has wonders we have not seen before. It has been a superb break. Next year we hope perhaps to return to Iceland and see more of what the country offers.

But in the meantime, a few photos of the final day.

Lots of Love
