After a lovely breakfast together its time to say good bye to Yara and Ivan ... they are heading on in a different direction today ... and to catch their flight home .... but its not goodbye ... just Au Voir ...... we will meet again .....

We have a quiet trip this time.   We head north to the top of the F26 and come out at the Godafoss waterfall... almost a full circle!

We decide to head south to the next village and get some lunch... a small roadside cafe provides us with delicious home made soup and bread and some coffee.

We sit and plan the next steps ... we are heading for Husavik in the north.

Sifting through some local brochures we see a whale watching tour and we can combine this with a horse riding trip .

. perfect!

Ling is excited .... she only met a horse for the first time on Juist just some  months before!

Now she is going to ride one!

I call and book the tour and then we head out the relatively small distance to Husavik on the main road.

Its only 30km or so and we arrive and find the local tourist office and find a local guest house to stay at.

After a walk in the town we find a small coffee house and enjoy some local cuisine.... the place is empty and we have a long chat to the girl serving ... shes just back from germany ... learning german for tourism ... her dad owns the boat we are going on tomorrow :)   small town huh!

We walk down to the harbour and take some pictures in the dull orange light... the light here is unusual ... some days extremely bright .. yet at times ... soft and subdued..... very unusual.

A walk back to the guest house and a welcome bed greets us ......

Tomorrow will be full of whales and horses .... any more surprises... I hope not ....!
