To the sun

We're in August which in San Francisco is known as 'Fogust". We recently had to drive up to Marin County just to see the sun. The sun appeared just past the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge. We went to Point Reyes Station for lunch. Here's a picture of blue sky over a rather dirty Studebaker Lark.


We decided to visit Point Reyes Nation Seashore. We reentered the grey but not the fog. We went to South beach which has some amenities.






There were six people in the parking lot but the beach was deserted.


There were signs of previous visitors.


Eventually we had some aerial visitors.

June 13, 2017: A Cloudy Day in Iceland Part 1

We went on another, even longer, bus tour to the South East coast of Iceland. As the title of this post indicates, it was quite cloudy and there was steam coming out of the ground.


There were farms huddled below ominous looking hills.


We were never far from water.



Our first stop was at a waterfall called Skogafoss.


Various hardy souls wanted the view from the top of the falls.




The view from the bottom was fine with us.



 The next stop was the glacier Solheimajokull.



It's grey because the ice is covered with grey and black volcanic ash. A different tour group had crampons, ice axes and a dispensation to walk on the ice.

 Our group heeded this sign.







We were fine with that.
