  1. I did want to try to blur the water falling which is really hard to do without a tripod Yet another video clip . Look for the midge that photobombs us at the end . The best photo that I have seen from behind the falls comes from wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seljalandsfoss
  2. Whist we love cities like Saint Petersburg , Moscow and London we do love our landscapes and critter shots . We were blessed to be able to go to Patagonia , Antarctica , Iceland and Norway in the past year . We really loved the scenery there so much so that we hope to return to Iceland , Norway and a first trip to Greenland this year . 😎
  3. Our next trip will be on our old friend the Regal Princess with a 26 day cruise . After that we will hop on the Rotterdam in Rotterdam for a week of Norway . The Neiuw Statendam and the Zuiderdam will both be leaving to do TA's the same day that we leave .
  4. Our last Pinnacle visit for a while . Port Everglades . We were red 1 and the first called after self disembarkation . We were trying to beat a storm home but going was slowed by rubberneckers checking out a couple of minor accidents off the road . Even the Snowbird Express was anything but express .
  5. Seljalandfoss falls about 200' There is a path to the right where some folks walked behind the waterfall . We didn't . Video clip :
  6. We did make a quick photo stop here but didn't cross the fence We also saw this at our last stop
  7. We forgot to factor in the hour added to the clocks so we were ready to eat the paint chips off the wall as we were eating an hour and a half later than normal . We phoned Caneletto to see if we could eat half an hour sooner . No dice . A quick call to the Pinnacle and we were in .
  8. Our next stop was Solheimajokull Glacier It's between 2 volcanoes so it has a lot of the residue on it's surface giving it a black appearance It's about a 15 minute hike from the road Size wise you can see it's height in relation to the people . It's about 5 miles long , 1 mile wide and currently retreating . From 1930 to 1969, the glacier retreated in total around 977 m. Then the weather cooled and the glacier advanced forward about 495 m until 1995, and also thickened by up to 100 m. https://www.extremeiceland.is/en/destinations/south-iceland/glacier-hiking Our point of reference for glaciers is Perito Moreno . 19 miles long , 2.5 miles wide and over 200 ' tall . It's Blue and advancing. It feels alive because you can hear it creaking , cracking and groaning as it calves
  9. Heading back to the car park Next stop An overview of Vik From here They seemed to have these stores at all of the ports . We stopped at a large one in Vik with a place eat . We tried the fish and chips and lamb soup .
  10. Some of the countryside with the greens and hills reminded us of Ireland . We are scheduled to go back in August in the afternoon so perhaps we will see the rainbow then . We finish in Boston for a couple days including Labor day so any places to visit there would be appreciated .
  11. We next went down to the black sands and Vik When it started raining and we ducked into the cave There are some basalt columns there that are perfect for climbing .... if you're young
  12. You're welcome and thank you for writing in . Yes , we used Brenda from Tours by Locals and she's the only guide with them in Bonaire . BTW she was about twice as much as our TBL guide in Aruba . She is a diver and snorkeler so look on her calendar online and let her know what you would like to do .
  13. Sorry that you had to miss that port . We did come close to missing it last year and we needed a tug to keep us pinned to the pier because of the wind . The trip to the penguin island was pretty bumpy in the small boats as well . We hope that the rest of the trip goes well .
  14. A Taste of Indonesia and I had been craving a slice . With a window seat we could watch the ferries come and go .
  15. We really liked this walk up waterfall Skogafoss 200' ( 60 M ) free fall You can see the stairs on the right of this one
  16. We were too and the ship was pretty empty when we got back .
  17. With an overnight in Reykjavik and the Midnight Sun we hoped to go to the glacier lagoon about 5 hours away but we couldn't find a guide that would take would take us there , so we settled for the South Shore . It was kinda bumpy coming in . We felt a little awkward after meeting Jens ( My name is Yens ) . Because we were the only passengers in a 19 passenger vehicle , we sat near Jens but he talked to us with a microphone and a PA system. We stopped here for a look at a glacier
  18. The Veendam and the Zuiderdam at Half Moon Cay .
  19. The Veendam and the Zuiderdam . Our tender was empty but the other was pretty full .
  20. Lobsterilla paid us a visit in our room Scenic fjord cruising There were a couple of events that we missed on the ship . The night before we went to Isafordur they had the Polar Bear Plunge at 22:00 when we crossed into the Arctic Circle . When we were in Antarctica in January , we were on time for the plunge , but they had it early and so we missed it there also . They also had fish and chips at the Lido which had just closed after we returned to the Zuiderdam . We vowed to have some soon . The Where and When for Reykjavik
