Our drive has taken us to Höfn, on the south coast, which is simply surreal. We are out of the snow (with the exception of the snow-capped mountains that tower in the background of every inland photo) and into black sand beaches, lava fields, waterfalls, and glaciers - everywhere. The combination of greens, blacks, blues, ocean, ice, and snow is brilliant. We've been able to hike into several waterfalls and photograph kooky mud pots as well.
We've got two nights to stay in a Guest House, which always makes for a fun adventure when sharing a kitchen, bathroom, and living room space. We go lightly on these as they can turn out a bit wild for the kids, but can also offer up some of the best memories and learning experiences that they get! Remember the Mad Hatter's house and his guests in Ireland? The pizza oven, the guitar, and his tales about being Ireland and rising out of the ashes each morning? Yes, yes, priceless education. We'll see what this turns up for us.
Oh, one last note. Quality car time. We forget how important it is for the kids to be able to entertain themselves and enjoy one another. No technology allowed. Let me share...
Jaden: "Let's play a game. Guess which glove doesn't have finger in it! Ready? Go!"
Justice: "Let's play a game. The silent game. Ready? Go!"
