Last Thursday was a public holiday to honour the Seamen of Iceland and celebrations spanned from the Thurs through to Sunday. There were various events on around the country, here there was a fun run for ladies, cakes and coffee provided to the seamen by the womenfolk, night time social events and a free boat ride around the fjord on one of the fishing vessels in harbour. I opted to skip the fun run and take the boat ride.
The sleeping quarters were either single or share and all had TV and ensuite.
I loved the huge scale of the ropes and chains
It was lovely to see the town from a different view
We were given a ride around the fjord
I just love this pic of Unnur....she came well prepared for the windy conditions
Sigga and I with the town behind us
Although we were all a little wind blown by the end of the trip...it was still an enjoyable interlude to the day.
