Iceland Day 5

8th March 2017 Wednesday

Morning @ Hofn. We had breakfast at the hotel before setting off. About 5 minutes drive from the hotel we came across this wonderful lookout point.



I like this picture… the stretch to the right of reflected mountain (picture above).

三八妇女节。 A day specially delegated to the ladies…. picture to commemorate this occasion.





After drove pass Hofn Tunnel, we were along the northern eastern Coast. The coast line is rugged with headlands jagged out into the roaring wave. The view was spectacular.




we had a number of stops to capture good pictures.



Late morning, we arrived at Djúpivogur, a picturesque little village.

Just outside the village, we spotted a sheep farm. This was the first sheep farm we saw in Iceland.



And this cunning looking creature stared at us from the corner of her eyes….I think her wool has the natural curl… quite nice.
