12th of July 2022 - Docked in Grundarfjörðurto see Snaefellsnes peninsula park

Today we anchored at Grundarfjörður.

We opened the curtains to a view of Kirkjufell which may be familiar to Game of Thrones viewers as Arrowhead.


Most of the excursion today was in the Snaefellsnes peninsula park.  We are being fed too much on this trip however Ruth and I couldn't resist the homemade apple pie with caramel topping at our refreshment stop,  The main stop on today's tip was a walk along a 2.5km cliff path which passed nesting seabirds.  This was very hard going due to the wind but well worth the effort.  Today there is few words as I feel the pictures speak for themselves.

Our final stop was at a lighthouse by the Snæfellsjökull volcano.

Our ship, Le Bellot, is French owned though chartered by an American company.  Steak always seems to be one of the options on the menu.  Tonight, we had a special gala dinner with umpteen yummy courses.  My favourite was the lobster starter.  I am enjoying meeting different interesting people at each meal in the restaurant and on the excursions.  Most people we have met so far are Americans and quite a few of the tour crew are from South America.
