Hofn to Djupivogur

A great scenic drive along this coast and fjords on the N1. The low cloud over the mountains somehow adds to the brooding atmosphere and, of course, means that the Trolls are hidden from view which is, we gather, rather a good thing.

The sun arrives with us in the attractive township of Djupivogur with its harbour and abundant bird population. An Icelandic artist of repute has created a long row of sculpted 'birds eggs', each one representing a local bird. We walk around the local coastline, all the time hounded by noisy oyster-catchers which is, initially, a novelty....

Cheese and wine outside in the evening for our group, thanks to our tour leaders. It's really successful..a chance to catch up and compare adventuring type stories which get louder and longer as the evening progresses until we are scooted back to our units, lest we disturb our fellow campers....It's just so difficult to know what time it is when the sun stays on.

Last stop in Iceland tomorrow. That's seriously sad.
