Sunshine kicks off our day!


As we awoke this morning, we were greeted by sunshine. Sleeping in is good! AND on a sunny morning, even better. We were up in time to walk to the Marine Museum and found a great little coffee shop right in the port working ship slips. A little coffee, a little apple torte and a great view into the harbor.

The Art was stimulating and encouraged us to find the "Clinton" hot dog stand. There we were met with many local folks getting a hot dog... Becky ordered for us: fried onions, mustard, mayo, gravy. I think this could be our last hot dog of the hot dog frenzy of the "Scandihoovians".

Results: Underwhelmed! Totally UnderWhelmed!

Wandering further a-field

Across the road and down the way is the fantastic Miles van de Rohe Award winning designed Harpa theater/Convention Center. Designed by Danish architectural firm Henning Larsen Architects and Icelandic architectural firm Batteríið ArchitectsThis building faces the harbor and has a commanding presence on the water front in Reykjavik.

 A different perspective from every angle.

Flowers greeted us at every turn.

Tomorrow we will greet the geysers and soak in the steam bath at Fontana.  Stay tuned for the Golden Circle trip. . .
