Time to Leave Akureyri, Along the Eyjafjordur


When you see the pilot boat, it is a sure sign you'll soon be on your way!



The Eyjafjordur is one of my favorites. There are some very nice farms and small villages along the fjord, with a promise of Akureyri at the mouth of the fjord.












This view is a favorite of mine.



The sun came out to highlight this special farm.











And we disappeared into the fog. 


I missed seeing my dear quilting friend, Ragnheidur, this time. Since our last visit together, sadly she passed on  much too young.

One more wonderful series! The landscapes are beautiful and the different blues of the sea would be very inviting for a swim if the water was warmer there! :-)

Hi there. I really appreciate the points you made. I don’t think I’ve actually thought about it in that way. I can really appreciate how you approached the subject matter and what you said really gave me a new perspective. Thanks for taking the time to write this all out

I am very envious of your traveling! There is so much to see in this world and I've seen so little of it. Your photos are gorgeous and I'm going to bookmark this blog so I can return to it!
