Reykjavik

Reykjavik was a pleasant place to arrive, nice and easy approach, Marina close to town and well protected.

The town itself was surprisingly busy, two cruise ships on the day we arrived but even after they left it was still busy.  Tourism is taking off and the place looks as though it is enjoying the good times with lots of building, good new cars on the roads and general signs of prosperity. Good luck to them.

Very beautiful area with still some snow on the hills.

Groceries were good but a bit more expensive. Fresh fish was hard, if not impossible, to find which is strange for a fishing port.  We did have Fish & Chips, well super healthy fish in spelt flour and wedges.  Alcohol is state controlled and sold in special stores, after awhile you tend to miss UK style supermarkets where you can do one shop and get everything.
