We came into Iceland yesterday morning and spent a couple of hours walking around Reykjavik. Later we drove to Nesjavellier, where we are staying in a very nice hotel. In the afternoon we hiked around the area (8 km), which has a lot of hot water gushing out. There is a thermal plant there as well. The pool at the hotel is a pleasant 38 degrees, feels good after walking a lot.
Today we drove the Golden Circle and hiked in Thingvellier (8.5 km). Wonderful landscape, and the weather was nice and sunny for most of the day. We had to scrape the ice of the car windows this morning though, and the maximum temperature today was 6 degrees Celsius. Fortunately, we have winter clothing with us.
We are spending a day in Toronto, not having been here for over 40 years. It was very interesting to walk around the city. The weather is quite warm and humid, but it didn’t rain.
I took the boat into Montague Harbour yesterday to start packing up for the end of the season. Today was beautiful and sunny, so I went for lunch to the restaurant at the marina here. It is their last day of the season too. Tomorrow I plan to go into Sidney where Ancient Murrelet will spend the winter. I spent 102 days on the boat this year, the weather was great and we got to see lots of friends and some family. Hopefully next year travel will be back to normal.
We came to Wallace Island today and hiked 13 km (all the trails on the island). The weather is sunny and warm. Andrea swam around the boat twice, Sheila and I did not as the water temperature is only 15 degrees here.
