Yes Sir, Yes Sir, Three Bags Full

I made it out of Reykjavik and turned North.  The sun came out, for the first time since I arrived.  I can start to see some of the landscape and so far, so good.

It’s been a wooly day.

What a wonderfully wooly day!  I now have the equivalent of at least 4 sheep in my car….did I mention it was a small car?  And a hatchback at that…so there is not really a trunk, at least not one that is separate from the driving area…so let’s just say it’s getting a little sheepy in there.

Now for a little walk and an evening museum exploration!
