It was SUPER WINDY all day long!
Despite the wind we saw lots of neat little things. We were still amazed at waterfalls that looked like this:
We saw some traditional Icelandic sod farm huts outside a closed museum:
Some of the landscapes are just totally empty and barren. Then you turn around and you see the ocean or a mountain. Very crazy.
What, what is this thing in the middle of nowhere by the road???
IT'S A CAVE!!!!! This was the coolest random thing we found on this day and I was excited about it the rest of the day.
I took a picture of Robyn by a million baby lambs but they started running away when we got out of the car.
This day wasn't so much about attractions as it was about filling a day with driving because of a) the extremely high winds and b) the fact we were a bit mixed up because we weren't expecting to be in this part of the island on this day. We drove on to grab a seafood supper in Stykkishólmur, a town of 1,200 famous for it's seafood, then headed on to our next hotel outside Hvammstangi... but we had to drive through a white-out blizzard first!
Stay tuned for Day 4! Featuring Icelandic ponies, a secret rock fort on a mountain, the unhealthiest thing I ate on the trip, the WATERFALL OF THE GODS, and Dimmuborgir.
