posted in: Agenda | 1

Day 12: Friday 14 July 2017


Good night sleep, despite raining all night…



Weather at start of day, and for the rest of the day, was rain !!!
with low cloud and poor visibility at times…



Departed Hotel Bjarkalundur Campsite and Drove Road 60 (Vestfjarðavegur) south just south of Búðardalur , where we stopped to wash our incredibly dirty cars !!!



We continued to take Road 54 (Snæfellsnesvegur), driving along the northern side of Snæfellsnes peninsula (Skógarströnd) on southern coastal road of Breiðafjörður. 



On the way we stopped to visit Stykkishólmur

Notice the cars are already dirty, only after 1 hours drive from a full car washing….



Viewed a really excellent low-angle rainbow along the way…



Stopped at Kirkjufellsfoss to view the famous waterfall with its pyramid mountain backdrop.



Arrived Ólafsvík in afternoon.

Stayed at Ólafsvík Campsite despite heavy rain all day, and totally saturated ground…



Evening was spent at the “local cinema” – Dr. Strange was the main feature…
