Iceland: Slowly Beginning the Drive East

I drove from Thingvellir National Park down to Eyrarbakki, then on to Vík with a stop at Skógafoss. If you're wondering where those things are, here's the route.

 Landscapes and colors at Thingvellir...


… where it was not balmy.

Eyrarbakki, by the sea, was so colorful!

 Here's one of the beautiful farms I passed driving east along Route 1 (the Ring Road)...

... another...

...another.

Skógafoss.

Vík. Make sure you notice in the far right, just above the land – this town is on the sea.
I checked the weather on my phone when I got to my final destination for the day.
I was much more impressed with the destination than with the weather.
(Actually Þykkvabæjarklaustur, but I guess that's too Icelandic for my phone.)
