Akranes (Ah-kren-aes) is an itty-bitty fishing town northeast of Reykjavik. It houses a pretty good bakery, and… that’s about it. 

Mouse had some good thinking time on the black sand beach.

Today wasn’t easy. I had intended to hike this mountain:

… but due to a wide variety of unforeseen circumstances, that didn’t happen (read:I got very lost and it started raining).

But I made some friends with these guys, who were curious about the human walking along the highway: 

… and then I got really homesick. 

Tomorrow I head back to the capital, and we’ll see where I go from there. 

After all, everything’s gonna be okay, and I’m going to have terrible, no good, very bad days sometimes.

Even in Iceland. 

Again, excuse any hiccups in formatting- this is being written on my phone.

  1. This may very well be my favorite blog post of all time. =) Fox and Mouse and horses, good times and not so good, all mixed together with a beach and a little rain… enjoy these precious moments, E… years from now this day will be a treasure. =) =) Sighs with envy, as she types another paper in MLA format, wondering how she managed to be inside on a day like this… =)

  2. Rain is not a good friend while hiking a mountain. But I’m glad you clicked that picture of Akrafjall. Such a beautiful place, and those horses add extra points. Tomorrow is going to be more beautiful. Enjoy!

      1. Your mouse reminds me of your mouse story and the strawberries! Do your mountain, Little Mouse. It will bring you joy and a sense of accomplishment.
        Love you, Grandma
