Good day, they called for bad weather but once again Mother Nature was on our side. So it was off to the north! Closer to the Arctic, and the closest I will ever be again! We took a shorter route straight north of where we are up the mountains again. The view was incredible driving into to small fishing village, and the winds were strong. But we made it, just so that we could spend some time looking at the Whale Museum...it was recommended to be done before we saw whales. By the time we finished looking at the incredible whale skeletons and learned about how these northern villages survived extinction themselves because of stranded beached whales, we walked outside to find the weather bitterly cold! Too cold that we noticed no boats on the water, probably due to the fact that there was supposed to be a storm coming in. Oh well, I could always see the orcas in Marineland if I wanted to. Ok then back in the car, off to one of the biggest canyons created because of an eruption! The road to get there however was along the northern coast, and Mother Nature turned on us because as we climbed the narrow roads the wind decided to turn into hurricanes again, and I could feel the car rocking and being pushed to one side! I drove slowly and safely (for those concerned). We manage to get to the part of the drive that took us inland towards the canyon and by the time we reached our destination it had stopped raining long enough to do a lovely hike! I must say I was impressed, the canyon was beautiful, and I felt like at any point in time tiny little elves were going to sprout out of the bushes! After that hike we hit the dirt road again, and this time we headed back south towards this twisted spherical looking lava field. It had left these huge rock formations that twisted and showed where the lava had turned the rocks into thousands of column! You have to see the pics! It was in this crayon that Bonnie and I lost each other. As she moved forward to catch some amazing pics, I thought I would head the other way to meet her on the other side, that I thought was less treacherous a hike... I soon found myself walking further around more formations, until I figured at some point Bonnie would show up around the corner! Well I went all around the 1.5km path ( if you can call it that)...and no Bonnie! So I went back to the car figuring she may be there because she must have finished the hike before me...but no Bon. I waited a bit while I rested in the warm car, and just as I was about to get out and look for her again, here came Bon, walking down the path! Phew, at least neither of us got lost in this canyon! Back in the car, we decided to take the unmarked dirt road to head home. Well if I thought we had gone off roading before...I was wrong! This was truly off roading,us puddles that left out car drenched in mud, and a one way dirt road over the mountains! Paved roads?? We don't need no stinkin roads! We got a 4x4! Good day all in all, got back to the town where our guesthouse was, did a little shopping in handcraft shop only open until today, then closed in September. Lets just say, y'all are getting something with wool in it! What can you expect with so many sheep on the island! Finally settled on dining in the same pub as last night, Bon ordered the lamb cutlets...they looked great! So here we are, almost finishing dinner, waiting to order our big slice of chocolate cake while we listen to a group of Americans talk about how the menu is quite American for a foreign country! Bonnie and I just smile, and think, how American to think that because a restaurant serves hamburgers that it is an American menu! Haha! Till tomorrow when we continue the journey west!
