Snaefellsnes Pennisula

This the land of the elves - they're hiding under rocks everywhere.   It's also one of the seven power points of the earth, the place where Jules Vernes began his Journey to the Centre of the Earth, home to a glacier, home to fifty-four species of birds, a place to whale-watch and and home to an active volcano.  It holds a sacred place for allowing three wishes and if you abide by the guidelines, wishes come true.  It's just amazing.  
Helgafell - A Place for Wishing
We started our day at 9am and arrived back at the hotel at 8pm.  And we have so many pictures.  I'm just sharing a few before we get tucked in.  Tomorrow is going to be another beautiful day.  I just know it.

Don't blink or you might miss a waterfall - they are everywhere
Kirkjufell stands as proud as a prince

And for my family - we are everywhere here!!!
