I realized that we are on this trip for 10 days, so if I post in batches of three, one day has to stand alone. I chose today because we found our favourite part of Iceland so far! We traveled pretty much down the entire Eastern side of the country today and it was absolutely stunning. We literally passed a waterfall ever couple of minutes and were constantly surrounded by winding streams all through the mountain tops as we came around the corner in the Northeast. As we made our way South, weaving in and out along the coast, we pulled over to stop and play in the warm black pebbles all along the beach which was flanked by cloud-ringed mountains. Nick took the opportunity to feed Micah and make some lunch while I grabbed some parting photos of the area. We started to see the edges of a huge glacier as we rounded the Southeast corner, but I decided to save taking those photos for tomorrow as I’m sure we’ll get better views of it as we make our way along the South edge of the country. We opted out of buying dinner at our B&B tonight as we had picked up a handful of groceries earlier on in the day. Instead, we made sandwiches and cut up some fruit and spent our evening with Nick and Micah chasing sheep around our cottage (which has a waterfall as a backdrop – of course!), and otherwise stayed cosy in our room.
Micah, you’re going to sit right here by yourself and look at Mommy, okay?
See, she’s right there with the camera, so look at her nicely while Daddy lets go of you super quick before you fall over.
Okay, I’m letting go now.
Wait… what was I supposed to do again? Look at you, Daddy?
Hmm… no, that wasn’t it.
Oh, right! I was supposed to fall over!
