After a yummy breakky, the hostess kindly gave us some bread to feed the ducks at the creek behind the B&B 🙂

The morning took us back to the Ring Road at Akureyri via the Godafoss waterfall

We had planned a 25 minute flight to Grimsey Island on the arctic circle (oh yes it did have to be done!)
This map doesn’t show the curvature of the earth correctly, but Grimsey Island is the northern most point of Iceland.

Unfortunately we never made it, as after sitting around in the airport all afternoon watching our flight get delayed and delayed and delayed – it was cancelled 😦

So we headed to Lake Myvatn for the night.

With a little stop on the way at Skutaustadir, for a walk around the cute pseudocraters by Lake Myvatyn.

Who can resist a dip in their local thermal baths before bed? not us! well usually but we got there and it was super windy and cold and the staff asked us if we were really going to take the children in???  so we balked and went for pizza (at the only open restaurant in the area!) instead. Here are some photos of the baths and those that were braver than us!

So not the most successful of days – but fun and interesting none the less  🙂
