The pleasant and knowledgeable attendant, Loi, commented that this summer has the driest in many years. Lucky us, 15 days and virtually no rain (not so good for the farmers). She also encouraged us to visit Bolungarvik which turned out to be a delightful village well worth the visit. The village is one of Iceland's oldest fishing outposts.
Later in the day Maggie went on a 3 hour boat tour to Vigur, an island were she photographed birds and saw how eiderdown was collected and processed. While Maggie was on her tour, I hiked up the mountain next to Isafjordur and was rewarded with amazing views.
