Where Is The Time Going?, Rock & Troll? & Camping Pods
WOW! we only have a couple days left in Iceland 😦
Speaking of time and thinking about the beautiful sunset last night, it is amazing how quickly the sunsets/sunrises are changing. Here is the official civilian sunrise/set times on the dates we arrived and when we will leave:
- July 22 Sunset: 1:13am Sunrise 1:59
- Aug 5 Sunset 11:43pm Sunrise 3:20am
In just a matter of 2 weeks, the times have shifted by almost 1.5 hours!!!!!
We have really enjoyed the long days.
Before we get on the road… here is a shot from our bedroom in Brjanslaekur.
Today was a short drive to our next stop… Borgarnes.
We got in early into Borgarnes and spent most of the day relaxing in a lovely home in the country. It was a well deserved break & I could get some time to edit photos and catch-up on the blogs.
Here are a couple of shots on the drive to Borgarnes:
And now for something completely different… a sheep photo 🙂 Note the tag in the sheep’s ear.
Another random lava field along the way…
Rock & Troll?
After a relaxing afternoon, we headed out for dinner & found a little restaurant called Rock & Troll. As we turned into the parking lot we were a little unsure after seeing this on the window 🙂
We thought it might be a kiddie restaurant with a troll theme. BUT we were wrong. It was a really unique place with great food.
To start with, the “rock” in Rock & Troll comes from the fact that they have more than 3,000 vinyl records and they will play requested albums during dinner. Here is the restaurant:
Note all the records on the right side.
Susie had them play Chicago’s Greatest Hits PLUS ELO’s classic Eldorado album. Historical reference for you younger fellas 🙂
If that weren’t enough… here is the view from our table – not tooooo bad 🙂
Here are a few other shots from outside the restaurant:
So, I got the “Roll” in Rock & Troll. But what about the Troll??? Well, the owner showed us a rock formation that looks like a troll near the river. Here it is. Look at the top rock formation… see the big nose, the eyes and the mouth???
They also had a cool campground that included these camping pods… Susie wanted one 🙂
We ended the evening with a lovely sunset…
Today was a very peaceful & civilized day…
