Our first night in the camper was a success. Got the electricity hooked up and the water running. Ali is in the bed over the cab, I am in the bunk in the back. All that is missing is Anne to sleep on the bed in the middle. I woke up thinking she was there and was startled when she was not.
Here is an email report from her. She is at a photo workshop in Southern Iceland: “All is great here. We had a 12 hour shoot today & I’m beat, starving & happy. My dancing feet finally un-swelled only to be faced today w/ a 3 hour hike amidst our day of shooting.”
Yesterday we drove around the Snaefellsnes peninsula. There are lava fields, fields of lupins, waterfalls and volcanic peaks. As crazy as that terrain sounds, the walks are gentle. The tundra grass is short and there is a spongy quality as you walk. I’m sure there are tougher hikes, but we are avoiding those. We are also avoiding any gravel roads! Ali advanced the idea of driving over the big volcano, but I pointed out that it was a brown line on the map (gravel) as opposed to red (paved) so we went the longer way around.
I remembered that I can twitter when we hit wifi, and in this delightful country there is a lot of wifi, so I’ll be doing more of that. (link is in the side bar)
